I am just now posting pictures of our vacation up to Lake Tahoe over the 4th of July. We had such an amazing time. We spent a lot of time at the Tahoe City Marina on the boat.

The fireworks were spectacular!

Hey Friends!

Wow, it’s been awhile since I posted. This summer has been flying by, and I’ve been super busy but want to document our summer so far!

We made this DIY Wood Pallet Flag for the 4th of July and had it out in front of our house. WE love the way it turned out!

We followed Shanty 2 Chic’s instructions!

After posting our Ikea Kitchen Remodel Reveal earlier this week, I am happy to share all of the details in this post! Our kitchen consists of off-white Ikea Adel Cabinets, stainless steel appliances (Frigidaire Professional Series), teal subway tile backsplash, mason jar canned lighting, and dark wood engineered flooring!

I was searching the internet for Ikea Kitchen Remodel Ideas for months leading up to our remodel, and I loved finding inspirational kitchens! I hope that this post will inspire someone!

APPLIANCES:

We purchased ALL of our appliances off the internet without physically viewing them! This caused a lot of anxiety on our part but everything turned out perfectly! I came across AJ Madison.com while searching for online Frigidaire retailers. AJ Madison is located in NY, which couldn’t be further from our Southern CA home. Everything was delivered in perfect condition, even after being hauled across the country! Shipping definitely took a while, I want to say it was approximately 3-4 weeks from the time we ordered.

We ordered our wine/beverage fridge from LivingDirect.com, and they offer very fast shipping. This was to our door in a few days! However, once we opened the box to install it, there was a huge dent on the upper back right hand corner. Living Direct did offer a small percentage refund due to the damage, and we kept it anyway since it is not visible under our countertops.

Beverage/Wine Refrigerator: Edgestar 148 can Stainless Steel Beverage Cooler from Living Direct

SINK: Blanco Diamond Metallic Gray Super Single Bowl Silgranit Drop In Kitchen Sink from HomeClick.com. I originally purchased this sink from FaucetDepot.com and it was delivered completely shattered. To their credit, they did have UPS come pick it back up from our doorstep and provided a full refund.

Trades

CABINETRY, COUNTERTOP & BACKSPLASH, and APPLIANCE INSTALLATION: Matt Hamel/Kitchens by Design LA. These guys were awesome! I came across them as a total fluke. The first Ikea Kitchen Designer we hired (online) turned out to be a complete failure in so many different levels. However, to our advantage she did refer us to Matt. They are out of the LA area, however, they do work all over California. They work super fast and average 2-3 kitchens per week. And they KNOW Ikea products. After we were completely screwed over by the designer we hired, Matt offered to meet us at Ikea to order our kitchen to make sure everything was good to go. We are so glad he did, because he basically had to redo our entire design. He is so knowledgeable with Ikea Kitchens, he made it looks super easy!

WOOD FLOORING INSTALLATION: An awesome guy, named John Verzella (hardwoodflooring@usa.com), contracted through West Coast Flooring

DRYWALL & PAINT: JC of Premier Paint. He is awesome! He is out of Vista, CA and is one of the most affordable and genuinely hard working guys we found. He has repainted all of our downstairs and we plan on contacting him later this year to do our exterior paint.

We absolutely love the final product. I can truly say that my home is turning in to my dream home. Please feel free to contact me if you have ANY questions, need any recommendations, I would be more than happy to help!

I’ll leave you with this Video that Matt of Kitchens By Design LA put together!
