Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel

Happy Friday!!!!!  Did you check out our living room remodel yesterday!?  Wanna see our kitchen progress!?

Check us out - two posts in one week! haha! 

Once we finished the living room, I knew it wouldn't be long and Mama Bear's creative juices would start flowing and she would want to move onto the next project. We had talked about finishing the kitchen for awhile and I knew thats where her focus would be next.  So, I beat her to the punch and said "Why don't we do a shiplap wall in the kitchen?" (I know, asking my wife to do a shiplap wall is like asking a little girl if they want a pony)....and thats where project #2 took life.  Some of you might remember the wall we gave a makeover from our diy chalkboard and wine shelf tutorial. If not, you can check it out here. This wall was supposed to be green and somehow when we painted it when building the house the green turned to a brownish color. 

Disclosure: I forgot to take pictures of the before and each process throughout the project. I know....... Emily made the same face when I told her I forgot.

This wall gets treated the roughest out of all the walls in the house. It leads to the outside patio, which the kids, dogs and everyone else are constantly in and out. We always wanted to paint this wall but did not know what color to help hide the beating and dirt and dust it endures. You can see where the chalkboard and wine rack used to sit in this picture.


We've used the same trim in various parts of the house and we are slowly fazing it into every room. The top header trim is easy to install and comes from Lowes. Notice how the door is that gaudy orange color that matched the living room paneling. (not sure what we were thinking when we built the house and chose that stain color.)


Laying out the shiplap is fairly easy. Make sure to get your bottom row completely level. If your bottom row is off just the littlest bit you will notice it more and more as you go. Be sure to stagger your joints in the wood. My smallest cut was at 16 inches so it will it would hit a stud with each board.  Normal interior wall studs are spaced at 16".  


As with every project I came up a few boards short and had to run to the lumber yard to get some extra material. As we were headed to the checkout Guthrie climbed up on the cart and I snapped this picture on the right. I went back through my pictures and found the picture on the left of Paisley. Both pictures were taken almost exactly 2 years to the date from each other. Apparently Em had me working on a project on that day, too!


Not sure if this is coffee or a whiskey drink.......Both are acceptable forms of drink when painting. Just FYI. 


Here is the finished project. This wall is by far is my favorite in the whole house. We finally got to put our "the farm" sign and our "E" up that we scored at the Nashville Flea Market.  This entire room is still a work in progress.  Em needs to put some final touches on the wine holder and the bench is going away sometime soon.  We'd also like to to refinish our kitchen table.



Project #3 (Still in progress)

So after we finished the shiplap wall, we decided that our kitchen cabinets needed a major facelift. Being that they are builder grade cabinets they lack character. Again, that gaudy orange plagued our cabinets. I finally was able to talk Emily into buying me a paint sprayer. (A new project means a new tool. I've got this figured out) So now I am in the process of sanding down each cabinet to remove the stain and painting each of our 34 cabinets.



So far I've got the top cabinets painted (except the last one on the end.) Theses cabinets got painted twice because the first time I painted them I thought the paint was white which ended up being a light grey. Thank goodness Emily came home and found my mistake. Each day I try to get a couple cabinets sanded and painted so I don't burn myself out from painting. My least favorite thing to do in the world. 



Stay tuned to check out the finished project in the kitchen. Im sure before its all over Emily will talk me into a farmhouse sink and new countertops. We're also going to try to post more regularly so you can see what we've been up to around here!
