We Binged Fixer Upper – Now We Are Here

I love our home. I really haven’t worried about the decor or style of it, ever. I’ve never been a Pinterest wife or the trendy girl on the block. You won’t see arrows, or pink peonies, or a big white farmhouse sink in my home…. until now.

Let’s backtrack a few months to Ben and I sitting down to enjoy our morning cup of coffee and stopping on a show called Fixer Upper. Like everyone else, I was instantly intrigued. Joanna’s style and Chips’ humor sucked us in. All of a sudden, I was recording every episode. We watched it in all of our spare time. Soon, watching became talking, talking became pinning ideas, pinning (as it almost always does)….. Becomes a trip to Menards.

Uh-huh…. this escalated quickly.

Fast forward a little bit to when we started working on it. Here’s what we’ve done:

Painted the cabinets. Check out this post on How to Paint Cabinets Yourself!wp-1475890632674.jpg

Painted the walls.

“Window” cabinets. (DIY)

We (LOL, Ben) created our own rustic floating shelves. It was really fun to distress and brand them. We hammered screws, nail heads, chains, and random items into the wood to create the look, and then we stained them.

New countertops. (Menards)

I hope you liked this post about my new DIY Modern Farmhouse Kitchen. I hope you are inspired to start your own project, and I can’t wait to see what you’ve done.
