House Renovation (Dining Area)

Hello, Friends! It's been ages since I've blogged because life has been crazy (and exciting) with a house renovation. I thought I would share some before and after photos of rooms, as we complete them. We bought a house mid-August and started renovating immediately. We loved the house, but needed to open up a couple of rooms to make it work for our family. We tore down walls between the kitchen and great room and between the kitchen and dining room. We love big, eat-in kitchens because everyone always wants to hang out there. This photo shows the space during the tear-out phase. If you know me at all, you know I don't do well with chaos, so this is not my favorite stage of the process.

This is the space now. The wall color is my new favorite - It's so fresh and pretty and it just makes me happy! (Benjamin Moore North Shore Green #456) Since the kitchen and dining area are one space, we also painted the kitchen the same color.
We are thrilled with the end result. It's warm, cozy, and inviting. This (and my craftroom) are the only 2 rooms completely finished, so that's where I tend to hang out. The kitchen will be completed next week and we're hoping the great room will be finished shortly after that. We are beyond ready to get back to our "normal" lives and kick back and enjoy the holidays.


  1. Love the openess you've created. I hope the rest wraps up quickly - do share more pictures as that happens.

  2. Don’t rush, keep patience, don’t give up the strategies House Renovation service about for all.. Although promoting your business is necessary more important than just thinking.
