Spring 2019 ORC Week One- Ashley’s Kitchen

Spring 2019 ORC Week One- Ashley’s Kitchen

Here we go again! I have officially signed up for the 2019 Spring ORC One Room Challenge. This time around I will be doing my kitchen. This is a project we just recently started. I figured, because we seem to thrive under deadlines, why not take on the kitchen and get that baby done?!?

Our kitchen was going to be a huge gut that we had been putting off for 5.5 years. To be honest I wasn’t super excited about it. But when my husband is ready to take on a project you do not say no!

So here are a few “befores” of our kitchen:

There are aspects of the old kitchen that work well. I do love the color palette and the slate floors. What I do not like in this kitchen is the small doorways into the living room and the dining room. Even though the kitchen had a nice flow between the two spaces, it ended up isolating people, especially at parties.

So here is where we are at just a couple weeks ago:

The temporary walls are up and the block wall is gone.
The new view into the kitchen and dining room.
The headers are in, the temporary walls gone. Next step is extending the floors out 3.5 feet into the dining room and moving the refrigerator into the old built in china cabinet.
The kitchen as of today!

Can you see the progression?

Our next step is building the stove cove on the wall you see above.

There is still a ton of work to do but the kitchen is already taking shape. Lets hope this deadline can keep the momentum going!

If you would like to see my moodboard for this kitchen and what finishes we have in mind, read this post.

I’m so excited to see what all the other guest participants have in store this time around on the spring 2019 ORC! Here is the link to the ORC official page.

Until next week-

Ashley
