Alyson and her family live in an 1890 workman's cottage in Chicago, and have been slowly rehabbing it over the last few years. Their most recent project is a brand new kitchen in the space formerly occupied by two small, dark bedrooms on the first floor. See what this room looks like now!
We love all the green! What a great space for a family. Here's what Alyson tells us about the renovation:
Our favorite part was incorporating timbers from an old church into our window sill and the shelf over the stove. Our friend was the pastor of the church in our neighborhood and they had to deconstruct it for safety reasons. It was really special that we got to use some of his old building in our new renovation (even though our contractor did complain a bit about having to work with it).
The green door against the dark wall is so fun!
