did you see

Hey there!  Did you happen to catch the episode of Kitchen Impossible on the DIY Network that my friends were on a couple of weeks ago?  If so, you may be wondering the sources for some of the amazingness that now resides in their kitchen.  See below for deets.

If you are lame like me and missed the ep, don’t fret we have another opportunity to catch it tomorrow, Friday the 18th at 5 pm!  A second chance to see it.

You may remember my ‘before’ post showing the old kitchen.  Well here are the ‘before and after’ pictures so you can really see the amaaazing transformation.  Tune in for the show if you haven’t already to see the ‘during’.  They uncovered some pretty interesting things behind those old walls. 

Onto the eye candy…

Remember the retro red enamel top table? Well, the designers let them keep it…annnnd pretty much created the entire new kitchen around it!

Gorge right?  Let’s see more…the built in AC is GONE! Whew.  Look at all of the natural light that has replaced it!  The old cabinets are GONE too.  The new farmhouse inspired cabinets are a beaut.  They are from Wellborn. 

You will notice that the layout of the room has changed.  That really wasn’t a flaw in the old room so the designers kept it.

Did you see the sink and countertops?? Soapstone!  A soapstone farmhouse sink.  I’m not gonna lie, I am jealous!  They came locally from Stone Masters in Kennett Square, PA – the mushroom capital of the world.

Remember the white appliances?  Check out their fab retro inspired replacements.

The left counter is a butcher block.  The butcher block and flooring are from Totally Bamboo.

Need a closer look at the red appliances?  They are by a company called Big Chill.  Aren’t they cool?  And have you ever seen anything quite like it?

For the big bright wall…it wasn’t so bad before but now it is useful with some cute built ins!  Built ins!  BUILT INS!

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the new kitchen and it is so perfect.  It is like Rosie the Riveter and Old MacDonald had a love child in the form of a kitchen.  Who knew you could do retro and farmhouse together so well? 

Don’t forget…tomorrow 5pm EST DIY Network. Second viewing.




P.S. The Poppies and Petals giveaway is still going on but you are running out of time to enter to win a package valued at $80!

My friends are reality TV stars.  Like real reality TV.  True story.

Here’s what you may glimpse prior to the big reno…

An AC built into the wall


A love for red appliances…


Painted cabinets and laminate countertops


A tinted glass cabinet door that I am voting can go


Lots of yellow paint and a funky map, I love maps!


White appliances…will they stay or will they go?


A fabulous retro enamel table…please don’t go!  You can take the laminate floor!


Free standing furniture…perhaps they need more cabinets or built ins


How will the designers transform this kitchen and will it fit Leigh & Aaron’s taste?


I can’t wait to watch but can someone DVR it for me?  I will be selling at Clover Market on Sunday at 10 am when the show airs. 


You know what would be the perfect Sunday

Watching Kitchen Impossible at 10 to see how the kitchen is transformed and then heading over to Clover to shop the 75 sellers’ vintage, antique and handmade wares!  Stop by and tell me what you thought of the renovation!
