If you’re an avid Apartment Therapy reader, like us, you’ve probably already seen it, but if you haven’t… our kitchen was featured yesterday!!!

One of the writers for AT emailed us a few weeks back asking if we’d like our kitchen to be featured on Apartment Therapy. Seeing as how we’re huge AT fans and they’re pretty much the holy grail of before and afters, we were like, “Umm, YES!”. The only catch, they needed photos within the week. Needless to say, we scurried around here for the next few days putting on the finishing touches we could to get the kitchen looking a little more “done” rather than “almost done”. We managed to build the floating shelves near the window, “re-style” the peninsula, make the “EAT” letters above the stove, and spray paint and install the light fixture above the sink. When it was time to send over the photos, Greg was literally screwing the light fixture in place while I was eagerly standing by with the camera. Luckily, we got the photos in their mailbox just in the nick of time.Β Whew!

So, we have Apartment Therapy to thank for lighting a fire under us to get things rolling. Like we said yesterday, all there is left to do if find barstools and a window treatment. Then, we can finally call this turkey DONE! But we all know any room in your house is never technically “done”, right? ha!

If you haven’t seen the feature, check it out here!

    Congratulations! I’m behind on my blog reading as well. We are needing to do a kitchen redo soon, although not nearly as extensive as what you have done. I’ve always thought I wanted a lot of color in my kitchen, but the more white kitchens I see, the more I think I want to keep things classic in lines and color. Your kitchen is a fresh inspiration to me. I love the subway tiles! Anyway, love your blog and super excited for your debut in AT. =)
