Kitchen Built-in Reveal


The last few months I have been a busy bee making a few fun house updates… the first project was our guest bedroom {which you guys saw here}, the second project was our laundry room {which I will be sharing soon}, and the third project was closing off a walk-way to our butler’s pantry and creating this beautiful built-in unit in our kitchen.

Having a built-in display for our kitchen was a dream of mine for a while now. You guys know I have so many gorgeous jars and vases and tea pots {one of the many perks from working with so many amazing brands!} and I hate having to store them away in a pantry or kitchen cabinet until the right dinner party. So with this open display, I have the opportunity to share some of my favorite pieces year round, as well as frame family photos. I also love the idea of updating the decor seasonally as a part of my seasonal and holiday house tours!

Here is a closer look at the new display!

For those of you who are new to FH or don’t remember what my kitchen looked like before the new built-in, here are a few before and after’s! Before, I had two very narrow shelves on either side of my pantry door, and then a breezeway for the butlers pantry. While in these photos the breezeway/hallway looks fine and open, on a day-today basis, the space was a constant eye sore from photo shoot props to kids strollers to toys, and it would give me so much anxiety. So by closing in the space I knew I could avoid clutter in my kitchen and connect my pantry and butlers pantry from the inside, becoming one much larger storage space.

Here are the before and after views!

While I don’t have much to share about the actual renovation process, because really all I did was hire a contractor and a few workers to demo, enclose, and build the built-in’s, I did want to share the before and after’s because like me, you may need inspirational photos to show your own contractor! {It was HARD to find images of super simply built-ins on Pinterest!!}.

I am also excited to share the space in its spring/summer element, because as I said, I know this display will be making many more appearances on the blog to come!
