House Tour Update: Kitchen and Dining Room

Time for an update!  I tidied up our kitchen and dining room the other day and thought it would be fun to share photos of the two rooms with our new floors.

Kitchen Dining

It’s amazing how finished these rooms finally feel.  Yes, we still want new kitchen countertops and yes, there are small things here and there I’d like to change, but overall it’s so nice to just be content with this space.

Kitchen Window


And can I just say how nice it is to finally have baseboards again?  That’s something I never thought I’d miss – or appreciate having so much once they were installed!

Kitchen Floors

You might have noticed we replaced the dining room curtains with panels that match our living room drapes.  While we loved the inexpensive green floral curtains, these new drapes actually close all the way and are lined to keep out the hot summer sun.

I’m thinking we’ll eventually replace the kitchen window treatment with a bamboo roman shade or maybe a linen one with ribbon trim.  Also on the to-do list: actually hemming the new curtains and filling up some empty frames in the dining room.  Those are the kind of to-dos I can do!


You can kind of catch a glimpse into our living room from this angle.  I’m hoping to get the chance to take updated photos of that room soon.

Dining Table

Overall we’re super pleased with how our kitchen and dining area has come together.  These photos will be making their way to our House Tour tab (where you can see “before” photos of both of these rooms) very soon!

Thanks for reading. 🙂
