Kitchen Renovation: from ‘Ranch’ to ‘WoW’

Posted on: February 21, 2013

The blogroll at The Inside Scoop at CellularWindowShades features a number of sites concerning DYI, home decor, decorating advice, before and after stories, repurposing furnishings, gardening – in short many areas that feature in the lives of anyone who calls their “space” home.

I dropped by the 7th House on the Left, the home (and blog) of Greg and Ashley in Virginia. Fabulous (and frequent!) blogposts, but my eye was ultimately caught by their *finished* Kitchen renovation! The post for Feb 15th, “Flashback Friday,” featured the MLS photos that first caught their eye. What a world of difference in Kitchens…

The original kitchen, from the MLS ad:


I was lucky when I first saw my house: the kitchen, which still retained its 1940s cabinetry, had been freshly papered and the cabinets (surely recently done?) sported a sparkling white glossy paint job. Only later did I notice the ‘irregularities’ – the most harmless of which is that the “new” wallpaper was never applied behind the refrigerator. I always knew the original 1940s wallcovering still existed behind the paper; now I also know what it looks like! Fingers crossed that the fridge doesn’t need replacing any time soon (I’d never match its dimensions).

Ashley will walk you through the renovation, in words and pictures – and even answer questions. Click the pic to see the *new* kitchen!

Very nice post on renovation. I read it thoroughly and found it very interestingly. The demonstration through the picture is making the post more readable. Thanks for sharing it here.
