Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel Reveal

Do you hear that? The proverbial angels are singing because we have come to the day that I can finally show you our farmhouse kitchen remodel reveal. It’s been a long time coming and this post definitely won’t be short and will have MANY pictures (no apologies, ahem). So, come along as I take back to our beginning and fill you in on our DIY adventure.

First, let me say a HUGE thank you to my awesome family. JC worked wonders in all aspects of this project. For instance, he took on things he’s never worked on before, all while working many jobs. To our six wonderful kids for being patient as we worked when we could, and for coming along and helping us complete our dream. We couldn’t do it without you! And, for my Lord as I know we couldn’t have done it without Him.

Why the drama you say? It’s just a kitchen, right? Well, to us it’s much more than that. About 3 years ago (2.833 years ago to be exact). While we didn’t work 24/7 on it for that length of time, it still took up much of our free time. And if you know what it’s like being a homeschooling family of 8, that “free time” really doesn’t exist. Also, because of the seasons here, we had to take breaks from it in the summer and work on outdoor projects. In addition, when a vehicle went bad, or overtime at day jobs comes up, we have to stop. So frustrating.

However, we decided it was time to fix a few bugs that were still existing in our home after a quick remodel we did after we moved in. You can see our first post back in 2016Β HERE, but I’ll update here as well.

Here is what you would have seen when we bought our home in 2003.

DIY Workbench Fit for a Junker

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, but they eventually turn out right or even better than planned, right? I am debuting my Christmas present today, one month late. tsk. You see, my husband had but one request from me for a gift. I wanted a DIY workbench that would allow me to not only store all my tools, but also be mobile and have an awesome work surface to boot. Not too tall an order, right?

Things were going as planned until we all got sick the week before Christmas, and then life goes on and it takes awhile to get back on course. So, FINALLY I can say I have my gift that both my husband and I can enjoy. I am one happy junkin’ mama. (yes, it is 20 degrees outside, sunny, and a great day to work! This is how I always look.)

Last winter I began a mission to dejunk my garage (aka my workshop). I am not a clutter bug and while I was pregnant I couldn’t work and my work piled up, literally.
