The Big Reveal of My DIY Kitchen Renovation

Shop My Home!

Coincidentally, as I was putting this together, Like To Know It released a new Instagram account for home shopping.

If you don’t know what LikeToKnow.It is, it’s essentially an app that syncs with your Instagram and sends you emails with where to buy the things pictured in the photos you like on Instagram (when the IG poster uses #liketkit). If you look to the right in my sidebar, you’ll see a section called “SHOP THE FEED” which will let you access my Instagram photos + sources. (To sign up for LikeToKnow.It as a shopper or as a blogger, simply click here!)

Anyhow, here’s a source list for every room in my home, all in one post for both Canadian and US shoppers to make it easy — because everyone loves easy! And just for fun, I thought I’d throw in the before photos as well. Enjoy and happy shopping!
