My parents bought a new house about 2 years ago and whenever I get that chance to help with a project I do! When my mom was visiting at our house she loved how our kitchen remodel was coming along so I told her we’d come out and update her kitchen.

This was the secret project I did a couple months ago when we flew out to California over the summer!

My mom has been trying to refine her design style since they moved to a more transitional design style. We re-did her dining room before Thanksgiving 2 years ago and a DIY German Smear project on her fireplace a few months before that.
