Big Kitchen Reveal

I figured out a way to get my photos uploaded onto my laptap at the hospital. So I'm posting way too many photos of my new kitchen. I will post more photos of the family room and mantel later. I love the new kitchen even more than I thought I would.

Every time I would tell Sam I wanted something for the kitchen, he would jokingly say "and then we'll be happy." He doesn't believe things can make you happy. The truth is, I was happy before--but my new kitchen sure does make me happy. Without further ado:














As much as I love my new kitchen, I'd give it all back to be assured that I will be bringing home a healthy baby boy in a week or two!

Melissa Walker said...

But aren't we supposed to seek things that are beautiful and praiseworthy? We need to surround ourselves with beauty and what better than a room you spend tons of time in! Looks great!

Liz said...

Could not be more jealous! Beautiful. I've always dreamed of a white kitchen. It makes it look sooooo big. Rest up and get some sleep. We are thinking of you!

I love love love your kitchen. It is gorgeous in the pictures and in person. I wish mine looked like that. You got what you wanted and you deserve it. After listening to all of us building our kitchens and now you got to build yours. Love the decor as well.

Brooke, I am so sorry about your water breaking! I can't get you and your little one out of my mind. I've been praying for him to be nice and healthy. It's great you've been able to get the steroid injections. I would love to help with your kids, I'm sure your mom wants to be there with you.

Your house is amazing! I love everything you did! Nice work.

Brooke! It looks amazing! Seriously Amazing. You should do this for a living!!! I cant wait to come over and see it in person. I LOVE IT! Now I want a new kitchen! Keep me posted on the new baby.

Elizabeth said...

Reasons why your kitchen rocks:
Funky Microwave, Classic white distressed cupboard doors with gorgeous handles, Black Panels on breakfast bar, classy granite bench tops, stone look tile splash-back and sexy under-bench sink!!!
I am so glad your kitchen makes you happy.
I also hope your little one is doing ok at this very stressful time and that you and Sam and your family are keeping it together as best you can.

Em said...

Brooke, this is weird, but I swear a while back you mentioned reading a really funny memoir recommended by a fellow blogger. Am I crazy? In the off chance I'm not, what was that book called?

Mandee said...

I LOVE it- can't wait to see it in real life!

Thinking of you ... dying to know if he's here yet!

Megan said...

Love, love it! Next time I'm in town you can make me something in it... :)

Good luck with your sweet baby. Positive thoughts coming your way...

Denise said...

Oh, ah. I hope to have a kitchen that nice someday! And, no need to give the kitchen back. I'm sure you will be home with an ultra healthy little guy in no time.

Jaime said...

I think you guys did a great job on the reno. Love to hear what you have learned and/or do differently next time - not that you have any desire to think about that right now. I think you did just enough - not too crazy and will add $$$ to your home value - brilliant! Listen, I have been were you are in the hospital, chilling, waiting for the baby to make its grand arrival. Enjoy it! Seemed impossible, but then again, you are not OCD like me. What a week it has been. I think you are awesome and can't wait to hear more about your newest little man!

I LOVE IT! I have been wanting my basement kitchen to be just like that for 8 years! ...dark floor white cabinets...LOVE IT! Stan wants dark wood ... like a saloon. we may never finish the basement kitchen even though we have a 5 burner viking stove and hood just waiting. Helllllooo Look how beautiful! What fun to go home with a new baby to a new home!

sheryl said...

p.s. I hope you are doing o.k.

Linde said...

LOVE the kitchen! How fun (and good) that it is done!

Hope everything went well for you today!!

brooke - i have meant to leave you a comment on your blog for the longest time. we miss everyone and hope things are going well in the hospital. i love every single thing you picked out in your kitchen. it looks totally amazing. so glad you got the pictures up. i keep meaning to tell you about good places to find rugs now that you have wood floors. i will save that for later, though. i am 31 weeks now and still can hardly believe it. glad susan's eli will have a little buddy when your baby arrives safe and sound. take it easy. last thing - jason and i have watched every episode of damages and it is one of our favorites too.......take care

The pics look great, and I bet it's even better in person. I can't wait to see the kitchen and the little baby boy.

It is absolutely gorgeous!!!! I love it, and am working to not covet it!

I hope you're feeling okay and hanging tough at the hospital. Will be seeing any self-portraits from there soon?

It turned out perfectly! What a miracle that this was finished just in time for Mitch to come! I dream of one day living in such a kitchen.

Beautiful kitchen! I was having panic attacks for you thinking it might not be done yet! Seriously! :)
