Come See the Kitchenette in our Guest House!

Happy Thursday, friends!

I am sorry for being MIA on the blog this past week, but it’s the kids’ Fall Break, and we went down to visit Jonathan in Franklin for a few days.  We had a ton of fun, but I didn’t have much time to be on my computer.  (And I’m NOT complaining about that! ha!)

I love my tribe!!!

Today, I wanted to show you the kitchenette in the guest house.

We started installing it last month, and I shared some of the process on my Instagram stories.

We decided on a kitchenette, instead of a full kitchen, because it will be mostly used for family and friends when visiting.  But we are considering renting it out with Airbnb, or something like that, so we will have to make it clear that it is not a full kitchen. 

Here is what it looked like before…


Those are Jonathan’s papers on the wall from when he used this space as a music studio, and that’s the mattress that we need to throw away.  haha!

This is what it looked like when we got it painted.  This is not the final white paint that we used.  We used BM White Dove, which I have throughout my house, but when it was on the walls in the guest house, it looked almost yellow-y.  I wanted a crisper white, so we painted the walls again with BM Chantilly Lace.

Here is what it looks like now…

The cabinets are stock cabinet from Lowe’s that we painted black.  The hardware and faucet are also from Lowe’s.

We got the farmhouse sink from The Home Depot.  It’s called the Bradstreet II Farmhouse Fireclay 30 in. Single Bowl Kitchen Sink in Crisp White.

The quartz counter top is from a local distributer called Stone Gallery.   We used their granite for our butler’s pantry too!   A local metal business custom made our black brackets for our shelves, and the shelves are reclaimed wood from Old World Timber.

If you have any questions about this space, just let me know!  

I’m headed out the door with Sania and Eli.  They are still on fall break, so I am soaking up some extra time with them.


Have a blessed day!!




  1. Love what you are doing with the guest house kitchen.
    I have just installed shiplap as a backsplash in my kitchen. The wood was from Lowe’s and was made and primed for kitchen/ bathroom use.
    That being said I have painted, sanded, & primed it several times to keep it water safe.
    Curious if you are doing anything extra to protect the wooden backsplash in guest kitchen.
    Thanks and enjoy time with your beautiful kiddos!

    1. Hi Michelle! I am not doing anything to protect the wood because it will not be used much, and I think it will be fine. You sound like you have done a great job of protecting yours! :). Have a blessed weekend!

  2. How cute and what a great idea to rent it out. We have a lovely guest suite but haven’t ever even thought of renting it out. It’s not a part of our house so I guess we could. Happy weekend!
