This 1920's era home in Southeast Portland needed a fair amount of work when the owners, Charley and Jessica of Woodblock Chocolates, moved in. Their labor of love turned out to be the kitchen, which they remodeled themselves on a strict budget. And isn't it lovely now? This recent House Tour on Apartment Therapy offers more insight into the specifics of their DIY kitchen remodel:
The couple remodeled their kitchen with almost no budget, with great effect. They opened up a small, hall/like galley kitchen into an airy space where they can cook and be apart of family life at the attached dining and living areas. The white subway tiles, salvaged shelves and Ikea butcher block come together seamlessly to create a homey, social vibe that is both modern and timeless. It's good they figured this part of the home out because Charley and Jessica create their bean-to-bar chocolate line, Woodblock Chocolates, in this very space.
