Galleries from the Farmhouse
Posts from The Porch House
At the end of every project, I like to look back and remember where we started. Seeing those ‘before’ photos when you’re standing in the ‘after’ is fun, rewarding, and confidence-boosting. But more than that, it’s insightful. Looking back gives me a chance to see where the project excelled and where it fell flat.
So today, I’m going to share some ‘before and afters’ with you and 5 lessons that we learned on the Porch House kitchen + sunroom renovation. And you can be sure that we’ll be applying these hard-learned lessons on our upcoming Farmhouse kitchen renovation.
This month marks two years since we wrapped our pilot for HGTV (Master Plan eventually aired in February 2018). And in all the time since, I’ve never actually revealed the kitchen and sunroom. Sure I’ve shared glimpses - singular photos of marble, white oak, brass, and the softest green cabinets - but not the full kitchen and sunroom in one spot with resources and stories and all that jazz. So that’s what we’re doing today.
