In order to save money on our kitchen remodel we decided to keep out current kitchen cabinets. Jason and I love the vintage details, pine color and quality craftsmanship of the cabinets in our kitchen but we knew that we wanted the change some of the layout our kitchen as well as make it brighter and feel much for open. So we decided to rearrange and rework our existing kitchen cabinets and here’s what we did…
Reworking Kitchen Cabinets

I know its bad when family members are texting me to see if we are still working on our kitchen and if I stopped blogging :). The truth is that the kitchen remodel has been kicking Jason and my butt! We started by taking down all the upper cabinets on the oven and sink sides of the kitchen. We want to add a vent hood above the oven and tile the walls of the kitchen to give it a simple classic and clutter free look.
In order to make the kitchen feel more open and bright we relocated the refrigerator return and mini fridge to another wall.
We then moved our floor to ceiling pantry cabinets over to make room for our refrigerator and mini fridge as well as our microwave and eventually our toaster oven…. as soon as the countertops are installed in less than two weeks, woo hoo!!!
Jason used the wood from a few cabinets we decided not to keep in order to make a wine shelf for mostly our sparkling cider collection :),
a basket shelf over our fridge,
as well as cabinet for our built in under counter electric oven.
I am very thankful to have a second oven along with my new electric slide in range.
We still have a TON to do but here’s what we have done so far..
2 New Ovens Add a Freestanding Stepback Cupboard
Building a Vent Hood
Adding a Potfiller
New Carrera Countertops
White Subway Tile
New Farmhouse Sink
Take Down Upper Cabinets New Cabinet Hardware
Bead Board Ceiling Painted White
Lightening Up The Faux Beam
Open Doorway Between Living Room & Kitchen Enlarge Doorway between Dining & Kitchen Kitchen Island
