As a warm-up to my first Room Evolution party tomorrow, I thought I would share an inspiring 70’s kitchen transformation that happens to belong to a good friend of mine, Vanessa.
This house was 70’s through and through, complete with a dated, teeny tiny galley style kitchen. Did I mention Vanessa
lives loves to cook and bake? She shows her love and friendship through her yummy dishes, and it’s refreshing to visit her kitchen only to be greeted by lemon blueberry muffins or her amazing chocolate chip cookies.
So, you can only imagine what a nightmare this kitchen was for her when they bought their house almost nine years ago. Are you ready? Brace yourself as we turn up the flux capacitor and step into a time warp. (I should preface this with the fact that these are photos from the walk-through they had prior to buying the house.)
Yeah, it was something of a nightmare, and suffice to say, I’m pretty sure her husband heard about it from Day 1. I mean, can you blame her?
But, rest assured, it didn’t stay that way forever, and is now the
cookie cooking refuge she’s always dreamed of.
Here it is pre-demo:
No, you haven’t accidentally clicked over to another blog. It’s the same house – I promise I’m not playing tricks on you. So much has changed in this space, it’s hard to even put it all in context from where the room started. They basically blew out everything in the old galley kitchen/family room combination, and turned it into one big kitchen.
So, to try and give you a bit of context, here are some room evolution photos:
So, get your rooms ready and don’t forget to link up! Looking forward to seeing what you have to share!
