In late May, right before the magazine feature was out, I posted new pictures of the kitchen. That post was to show the small details and decor I was added to give the space a little more character and the polished, finished look.
The kitchen has held up well. It is definitely a kitchen that is used and not just for show. I cook almost every night and mostly from scratch. Plus working from home, I am usually making myself breakfast and lunch as well. Over the year, the space has been broken in and our product choices have been tested for sure.
The only thing I am slightly disappointed in is the dishwasher. I had read that LG dishwashers were good but not great. LG is still considered a new company to appliances. I chose them because of the stove. I wanted a high BTU, 5 burner stove with a double convection ovens. LG offered the highest BTU burners with all the other options. All the other appliances have been amazing and I am extremely pleased with them but the dishwasher is ok. Good but not great is an accurate description.
We are still absolutely in love with the space and the house. It has changed so much in the 16 months we have been here. I am looking forward to updating our bathrooms and finishing the inside of the house. They are the last "big" projects we have inside and I can't wait to see their transformations.
And for my new readers or those of you that missed it, here is my finished kitchen. To see before pictures, click here.

Have a great weekend everyone!
