Legend of Blue and the Beard

Legend of Blue and the Beard
This kitchen makeover comes fresh from the oven of a single-dad who calls himself ‘Beard.’  Beard had a big list of goals and small amount of space to work with; just about 100 square feet. I’d say he did pretty awesome!  Here’s the rundown of what he wanted out of his kitchen reboot: 


Decluttered: check


De-soffited: check


De-smurfed: check


Flooring, fixtures, and counters updated: check


  Dishwasher in non-stupid place: check


  Rosie-the-Robot installation: uh, not check.


(I’d like to be the first to know when that becomes available, however. Oh, heck yes I would.)


 


It looks streamlined and modern, and yet still feels warm and homey. Amazing job Beard! Learn more about Beard and his home on his blog Beard and Pigtails.

    Thanks Lindsey for posting up the kitchen reboot! My favorite parts of the redo include the custom-made table and cooking with gas. The black floor is also good at hiding messes, is that a plus or minus?

    Am I nuts or did you already post about this kitchen??? I remember reading about the table he made and the Ikea cabinets with the huge pull out drawers. Have I finally snapped, am I psychic, or what?

    This kitchen was also featured on the wildly popular Young House Love, so that’s probably where you saw it kimberj!

    Oh! Oh! I think I just had an organism. (keeping it nice in case kiddies read this!) That is just to die for! I think I’d faint if I walked into that new kitchen from sheer utter joy!
