Thank you so much for all of the love that you’ve been showing about my kitchen lately!!! We’ve been making progress and I gave a few little glimpses into my kitchen in my Instagram stories “episode” about Indoor Pothos Plants!
I received so many messages about my sink and my oven! You all loved them! THANK YOU!!! My husband and I put so much time and effort into the design of our kitchen – started from down to the studs – with our main goal making it look and feel like it should have always been apart of our 1886 Victorian home! …with a modern twist to it!

Since I haven’t shared any updates about the kitchen lately … I’m at fault. I typically prefer to share complete update posts rather than progress posts – but that’s just silly! We all know that in the real life of DIY, things take a while, you get burnt out, you make enough progress to make it functional…and then just drag your feet completing it! I guess i shouldn’t feel so self conscious and just share the process with you all!
OK! Enough blabby blabby….let me show you around!

All of our appliances are “panel ready” (except the oven). This means that the appliances comes with no “face pane;”. We custom made our cabinet doors in the dimensions of the appliances and installed them so they would look like cabinets.

Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Maker (love love love this!!! Yes it’s expensive, but it’s worth it!)
My husband designed and built everything for the kitchen. We hired an Amish gentleman to make the doors (the doors are time consuming. My husband made them at our last house, but this time, we had way more than just a kitchen renovation going on, so we paid for help!
We designed our doors to be inset because that was common back in the 1800s – so there are no hinges showing nor overlap of the door to the cabinet base/box.
