Elsie’s Kitchen: Progress Report (Part 2)

Elsie's kitchen progressHello, friends! I’m getting dangerously close to having TWO finished rooms to share with you soon. I can’t believe we’re finally to this point. HUGE milestone.

I thought I’d share one more progress report on the kitchen. It’s at that awkward stage where it could pass as finished even though it’s really, really not yet. We still haven’t installed the hardware. There’s a big gap between the stove and the wall that we have to get filled by the countertop place. There are a few issues with the grout that need correcting. A rug that needs to be found. And a BIG DIY project planned that still needs to happen.

But I’m not here to talk about my to-do list. Let’s talk about the progress!

Since these shelves are a huge part of the storage we have in our kitchen, I’ve been working on solutions for using the space in the most functional way. But I obviously want it to be pretty too. So it’s taking some time. I snapped these photos after my first late night styling session. Every day since then, I’ve moved things around more and more. And I’m slowly adding more useful/functional storage options. (I’ll share more on that soon!)

Elsie's kitchen progress OK! One last photo of this in-between phase. I love seeing it take shape. I am hoping we can wrap up details and share a full tour with you in either December or January. Send us all the good/productive vibes!

If you want to see more of the process, see the BEFORE here and the first progress report here. xx! Thanks for following along! Elsie
