A sneak preview…

Of our almost finished kitchen!

We thought it was time to show you all how beautiful our kitchen is looking, we took this photo yesterday morning before I finished washing our breakfast dishes so please excuse the mess! More photos will be coming, we are just waiting on some finishing touches (a new rug and bar top for the breakfast bar).

Some of you may remember us cheating on our tiles with these beauties:

Back-splash and counter-top.

But as it turned out, the number of cuts these tiles would have needed and how difficult it was to cut the marble, even with a super diamond coated saw, really made us question how much is would end up costing us. Luckily our old tiles took us back and we love them so so much, they look gorgeous in our kitchen!

Paul is working on the dining room as I type getting the walls ready for painting and we have almost decided what we will be doing with the stairs. Hopefully painting them will be nice for now, something like this:

Painted stair runner.

Or:

Painted treads and risers.

Obviously we will pick colours more suited to our scheme but you get the idea.

 

Everything is coming together, slowly but surely and we love living in our adorable neighbourhood with all the bunnies!

Let us know what you think in the comments, as always we love hearing your opinions.

One thought on “A sneak preview…

  1. Well Hun it does look lovely, i love yhe tiles but wish we could have got more of a look but you know me continuously greedy for more! I love the idea for the stairs because I know they were giving you a bit if a headache trying to work out what to do with them, I really like the painted runner but as always whatever you choose will be great. Loves you both, Mum xxx
