Project blindness. Is that even a thing? Spending every day surrounded by unfinished projects makes it all too easy to focus on what still needs to be done. The trim around the doors? Partially complete. The floors? A project for another year. Replacing the ugly back door? Hopefully sooner rather than later.
It is easy to forget where we started, with a couple random cabinets in an unfinished room. Just looking at that first picture, though, helps make those changes more evident.
Cabinets, countertops, and appliances were a good start, but it is the small details like the galvanized metal under the window, the exposed brick, and the jar light fixture that are my favorite elements, those touches that make the kitchen ours.
