Our kitchen is finally complete. Check out the “before” pictures to see the difference. We still have a small kitchen, but it’s now a very bright, modern, functional and welcoming room for my husband and I and all of our guests. And now I won’t need to force my guests out of the kitchen by shutting off all of the lights at our holiday party.

Some of the photos were taken at night and I’m not the most amazing photographer, but enjoy anyway!

We’re still on the look out for new stools for our kitchen. Know of any that would look good?

Our lovely new faucet at night—it’s the little things!
