Well folks we did it. What started on a sunny day in May, was completed on an overcast day in late July. Our kitchen is DONE!!!!! Below I’ve posted those ever popular BEFORE and AFTER photos. I’m going to go on record as saying this was not a painful process at all. Not once did I feel inconvenienced, put out, or feel like this was dragging on forever. Yes, we made a make shift kitchen set up, but honestly we do most our cooking outside in the summer anyway. Ok, there was the one day when neither one of us felt like painting or cleaning, but we tackled it and and it’s DONE!!! Here’s the key. Our little secret. Now don’t tell anybody, k? This went fast because we (we as in Sweet husband 90%, me 5%) did 95% of the work ourselves. BTW, click on the pictures to make them bigger.
This shot is taken from the hallway going into the kitchen. What the hell is that big black thing, with crap hanging all over it…the fridge. You’d think I would have junk up these pictures before I took them, but no. Ok, just a little, I think the laundry room was tore up so that stuff had to land somewhere.
See that big green space directly in front of Sweet Husband? That’s where the refrigerator once sat. As you will see in a couple of pictures, the ice box is now recessed into the wall and we have long luxurious counters. Hell you can even see down the hallway now. It’s a beautiful thing.
I LOVE our new kitchen!!! It’s newness will wear off and I won’t be so cautious when opening doors and I suppose I’ll cease being afraid to leave smudge marks if I don’t use the door pull. We think it came together quite well. The most amazing thing is how huge it feels. Even with all the dark color choices and the paint color, which looks amazingly like the outside of the house, this kitchen is now quite large. I supposed this too will wear off, but I hope not. Enjoy!
