Remember that kitchen in Pittsburgh we renovated in June? Well, renovating a kitchen in 6 days was only half the fun, keeping it hidden from the homeowners (my aunt and uncle and their three children) was my favorite part. Today we’re so excited to share with you a fun video from Frigidaire Professional of when we were finally able to reveal the kitchen for the first time to the homeowners.
While they lived in the house the entire week, we renovated the kitchen and tarped it off so they couldn’t see it (besides their 16 year old son who was so eager to help) until the big reveal day.
It was a very special moment with lots of tears, hugs and cheers — there’s nothing like the smell of fresh chocolate chip cookies in a brand new kitchen!
Since coming home, we received a nice note from the Worrall family expressing how much this renovation meant to them and their family, and how enjoyable even cleaning the kitchen is, which is pretty much the best mail we could receive. The appliances have added so much functionality they never knew they were missing, and all those extra details that Frigidaire has mastered is what really turns a kitchen from the place you prepare your food into a place where you want to spend your time. We’re sending our photographer back to get some seasonal shots as the seasons change, but if you didn’t catch all the before and afters, brace yourself, and check this post out. You can also find the budget breakdown of the kitchen here and the full renovation video here.
Special thanks to commercial photographer (and my sister!), Andrea Ahedo, for being our videographer while we were on location. See more of her beautiful work here.
