come on in! *kitchens*

hi! today i'm linking up with http://www.momfessionals.com/ in her come on in series...i love love looking at houses, so i guess it's good i'm a realtor right?!

today we're looking at kitchens...my favorite part of any house. we built our house almost 6 years ago, and i splurged a bit in the kitchen but i feel like it's been so worth it as much as i'm in here.

so this is looking into the kitchen from mike's office...i wanted plenty of storage so we did an island plus a buffet, and i use every inch of storage space! i did painted white cabinets with black granite for a classic, timeless look.  i {love} my gas range and double ovens-i chose the ge monogram brand instead of viking to save some money and have never had any problems with it at all. you can't see my farmhouse sink from this picture but it's from whitehaus and i absolutely adore it!!  the pendant lights we switched recently..found them for a steal at lowe's. my breakfast room orb light is from ballard designs.
 this is my buffet which separates the kitchen from the living room. i have large pots and pans and reusable containers in the two big drawers, then towels, sandwich bags, and sadie's plates and bowls in the little drawers. my collection of cookbooks and cooking magazines are in the open shelves, then the pull out drawer hides the trash can!
 i enjoy having the glass front upper cabinets but it also means they always have to be organized and pretty ;-)
 we made what was the formal dining room on the plans into mike's office so this is our dining area...i do wish we had a couple more feet of room around the table but it works fine for us! the farmhouse table i got at spice in waco when they sold furniture and the chairs are from pier 1. we added the extra storage cabinets/wine rack/coffee station into the plans and we love it!!
 it holds our white wine (mike hoards his red wine collection in his study ;-), our coffee and cappucino makers, wine glasses & plates..in the lowers cabinets i have bakeware, servings trays, and sadie's art drawer.
i hope you enjoyed taking a little tour of our kitchen and dining area!! happy tuesday!

  3. Your kitchen is beautiful!!! I love everything about it. White cabinets and dark granite is my favorite kitchen look. I am intrigued. Is that a microwave built in on the end of your island?

  4. Hi Danielle,
    You probably don't remember me. I'm Sara Cooper (used to be Sara King) and we met after you got married. Mike and I went to pioneer school together and used to work kind of close by years ago. Seems like a LIFETIME ago! I have a 5 year old son Jack and I finally got to see your cutie on this blog! She's adorable and your house is too cute! Wish I was able to find time to blog about the neat things you want to remember when you're older. You'll have so much fun looking back at all these pics and memories. ☺️ Hope you guys are doing well and glad I got to see your cute little Sadie! �� Sara Cooper
