Before we dive in, some background on how I came to be so very excited about this renovation. When it comes to Beverly Weidner, I’m the proud, wide-eyed little sister who is all up in her blog-sharing over on her two(oh yeah!) facebook pages. Ok, one is a page. One is her profile. I “friended” her, liked almost every food post, and the rest is history. We’re best friends! But really, she’s the whole package. Pretty inside and out, pretty kitchen have-r, amazing chef, and laugh-worthy narrator. I hope I’m convincing because she has not personally cooked for me and gabbed over a glass of wine… yet.
Here’s a pic to break up my chatter.
Back in March, on my big ‘ol Spring b-day, Bev wrote on my wall. O.M.G. Having played her up as a famous blogger-foodie-chef-lady for months, my mind was beyond blown when she wished me a happy birthday. Ever since, I’m convinced – and I don’t miss an opportunity to share it enthusiastically – she’s gonna be famous. On TV. Making people laugh right up there next to Ree and Paula on Food Network. In her sparkly new kitchen.
Mark. My. Words. People.
Bev, you mark ’em, too – I can’t bear to be wrong about these things!
You can imagine my excitement when she agreed to be my first official Fresh Cut. So here you are – behold, a truly Fresh Cut Space. Finished just last week. And she didn’t miss a beat on her morsel posts. Designer and chef. Go girl.
Before the overhaul..
Grab your Ray Ban‘s – it’s so shiny bright! Ta-da!!
How classic is that hardwood flooring? And the clean, crisp white? I’m in awe.
I’m a sucker for cute, snuggly coffee-maker nooks.
And cutting board slots! And pretty cutting boards in general.
Coil-y, stainless sink heaven.
Repeating the warmth and rustic feel of the floor balances the space. I love shiny white when it befriends natural wood.
More shelves and happy vintage glasses.
The “coffee station.”
Two words: functional display. Love. Go ahead. Pin it. I’ll wait.
Twinkly lights! This makes me that much more giddy about our bathroom renovation featuring: super, glittery halogen track lighting. Doesn’t it just feel like your in the tropical sun? No? Close?
Kudos to Bev and Aaron and Eric and all those people who made this space the dreamiest little kitchen. I bet the food is going to taste so much more delicious (if that’s possible)!
Design and photos by Beverly Weidner on her fancy camera. In fact they’re even prettier over on her blog. If this looks familiar, I shared a little link to Bev’s post over on my FB page last week! Go see!
