Before all of this house craziness began, I found a lot of joy in refinishing or re-purposing furniture. This was sort of the basis of our blog name “Upcycled Ugly”. I would buy or inherit “ugly”, old furniture and attempt to turn it into something cooler, more attractive, or more functional.
I recently was able to spend a bit of time getting “back to my roots” and it brought me a lot of joy.

Anyway, thanks for humoring me! These projects are so much more fun when I get to share “before and after” photos with you wonderful people!
I aspire to be one of those bloggers that features amazing “room reveals” on their blog. I’m amazed at those who seem to finish all of the work in approximately 24 hours and have it perfectly staged, photographed, and edited by the next morning.
Yeah, I’m not one of those bloggers.
I’ve been hinting at showing you our kitchen… for months… and it’s still not finished. So let’s have a kitchen “right now” tour, shall we??
We’re hoping to have finishing touches up in the next week or so.
Here’s what is missing:
- Hardware installation
- Molding for top of cabinets
- Rustic wood shelving above sink and fridge with steel brackets
I’m also hoping to have an inspiration post, as well as sources, if anyone is interested!
Thanks for stopping by!
