Hello, 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!
Here’s a view of both sides of the open shelves. Side 1.
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!)
I’m having SO much fun working on this. It’s turning out to be a space that we love to be in, which is what matters the most.
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

Did you old refrigerator from your previous house in Springfield not make the journey with you to Nashville? I loved that thing! It was so cool!
Beautiful kitchen Elsie! Any chance I can ask where you got the gold flatware?! Thank you!
It looks fantastic! I love the brightness of the white and open shelves. I would love to cook there! ♡♡

Gorgeous, light-filled space!
I love how bright this space has turned out! The open shelves are divine!
Oh Elsie, where are those recycled glass cups from?! I am in love. <3
gorgeous! where did you get that fab beehive cake dome?
and what happened to your old refrigerator, the vintage looking one?
Major kitchen envy right now! I’m dying for new cabinets, similar to yours, but I’m stuck with mine for a little while longer. Such a beautiful and inspiring place to create 🙂 Great job!
Your kitchen looks so awesome, great job! Are those elephant salt & pepper shakers? Love them! Was that a lucky flea market find also?
Are your open shelves diy? I love that they aren’t as chunky as some you can buy. I’m going to do some in my new (old outdated) kitchen. Any tips on mounting would be awesome (bolts or brackets hidden beneath tile??).
The open shelves are amazing! Love the clean, sleek look!
I love that range. Could you please give me the details on it? Thank you!
I would be interested in how you fill your new houses with music. I don’t see any speakers, but I think you all like music?
It looks great Elsie! Well done 🙂
The light fixture steals the show!! Love the entire kitchen. Can’t wait to see it finished-finished.
Oh my goodness, this room is gorgeous!
I must say, this looks amazing. Everything fits together perfectly, I would love to cook in such a kitchen!
I love all the white. Very clean-looking. Wish I had 1/4 of that space! 🙂
I’m loving it so far! http://www.hannamarielei.com
Great transformation! I love the white and marble theme. It really works how you did it, and you can add color on countertop or shelving items which works great too! I am remodeling my kitchen now also but I might to a medium gray countertop and mostly the rest white, but marble quartz was definitely my 2nd close choice. @BeautifulMess, do you mind telling us approximately how much the whole kitchen cost to redo? Love your blog!
