6 The Before Tour: Kitchen & Den

>> Saturday, January 30, 2010

Alright, now that you have had one whole day to recover from your introduction to our new living & dining rooms, we feel that you are much more prepared for what you will encounter in the next two stops of our before home tour. We’re kitchen & den bound!




Welcome to our kitchen. Our dark kitchen. Our no-way-will-Cara-ever-find-her-way-around-should-she-stumble-in-without-her-contacts/glasses kitchen.

Like the pink countertops? As we continue our tour throughout the coming days, you’ll find that this hue was obviously a favorite of the builder.

image Yesterday, we definitely found a Gone with the Wind theme going on in the dining room. In the kitchen however, I am gravitating more towards Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The scene where the kids encounter the lickable wallpaper?

The oranges taste like oranges, the rasberries taste like rasberries, the shnozberries taste like shnozberries!

Next stop, the den! This was immediately our favorite room in the house for the several reasons…

1. Only room with hardwoods already exposed
2. A very handsome fireplace would make for cozy reading
3. We Wilkersons require a home office and this space was will be Realtor perfection


Let’s talk about the elephant in the room: the paneling. It needs to go and is being ripped out and replaced with sheetrock as we speak! We can’t wait to reveal our new light and bright office very soon!


See you tomorrow for more scary goodness as we head to the guest bedroom & bathroom. Prepare yourselves. It won’t be pretty…yet!

Ready and eager to see that after shots!

I am laughing so hard right now. That wallpaper does look just like the wallpaper in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Hopefully it will peel off without too much trouble. Don't lick it! :)

Is it scary to say that one reason I may have liked this house so much is because I could associate a movie with nearly every room? I do have to say the Willy Wonka wallpaper was spot on!

Looks like a big kitchen! I am jealous. Mine is old AND small!

Big it is, but in need of a lot of work!
