Kitchen with Personality & Sources

In late January (where has the time gone?!?), we shared our kitchen tour and I promised you guys some kitchen sources in case you’re renovating, building, or just flat out curious.

Since our kitchen tour, we’ve added some finishes that make the kitchen a bit less bland, so here are some “update photos” followed by the sources!



Shelving with raw steel brackets and brass screws (see sources below).  Each item on these shelves has a story or memory that is special to us!


I’ve always told Aaron I wanted an old truck…


My sister brought this adorable cow for coffee creamer back from Italy.  Isn’t she cute?



Here are our sources if anyone is curious:

Floors:  US Floors Cork in Coffee Matte ordered from Regal Floors

  • We got an absolutely unbeatable price from this company, but make sure you leave plenty of time for back-ordered product (especially cork)

Cabinets:  Pepper Shaker Cabinets from Cabinet Giant

  • FYI:  A coupon code saved us over $600
  • Cabinets are plywood base and real wood fronts (no MDF)
  • Make sure you read about shipping- we had to rent a moving truck- but savings were worth it!

Viking Stove: Craigslist- $500- not kidding

Refrigerator:  Stainless-look Frigidaire that we already owned

Vent Hood:  ProLine Range Hoods 36″ 696 Professional Range Hood

  • Prices are unbeatable.  Customer service reviews are great.
  • We had a burnt out light-bulb upon arrival and they sent us new ones for free

Dishwasher:  Whirlpool Gold Top Control Dishwasher in White Ice from Home Depot

Countertops:  Quartz in Pure White cut by a local stone cutter

Island:  Old Work Table and Stool found at Lula B’s in Dallas

Chandelier:  Lamps Plus

  • First chandelier we received had an electrical short, but they sent us a new chandelier

Sink:  IKEA Farmhouse Sink (which I’ve told is being replaced with a newer model)

Faucet:  Bainbridge Single Hole Pull-Down Faucet in Polished Brass from Signature Hardware

  • I accidentally ordered the wrong size faucet and, in a pinch, had this faucet overnighted.  It arrived at my door in about 12 hours.  Not exaggerating.
  • In addition to that, they waived the re-stocking fees since it was an exchange and not a return
  • Prices are unbeatable for the quality you receive

Undercabinet Lights:  Supplied by Electrician

Shelf Brackets:  Raw Steel by Designs2Create on Etsy

Reclaimed Wood for Shelving:  From our house and our neighbor’s house

Cabinet Hardware:  Lee Valley Hardware

I don’t really like to talk “numbers”, but including the price of the appliances, we came in just under $8,500 for our entire kitchen.  I’d say that is a reasonable cost for a “kitchen from scratch.”

Any questions?  Please don’t hesitate to ask!
