last night i decided to rearrange the pantry, cabinets, junk drawers etc. it took me about 2.5 hours but the end result was great. i cleaned the kitchen and got it nice and sparkling and i thought if i had showed final pictures on the kitchen? i think the last update i did was this one. so let me just remind you of the before, before we even moved in.
these first 2 are from the dining room i think they primed it like 5 million coats before we could paint over this. there was also layer after layer after layer of wallpaper
these next 3 are from different angels in the kitchen. i look at these pictures and it reminds me how much work has been done by John, his dad, our friend Josh, and my bil Robert
and here are a few i took last night. these 2 are from the dining room looking in. we tore down the wall in between to open the space up and i love the end result. the pictures are a little dark since i didn't have all the lights on and it was past midnight. in like 40 years when i have some extra cash the man who made our cabinets is going to make me a corner nook with a l bench and a rectangle table but in the mean time i am stuck with the round one. oh and i also am going to replace that light i hate that one (i know John i picked it but i was tired of picking stuff and i just went with the first thing i thought would match). lastly i need to hang something up on the wall in the back i am thinking of white plates like i have seen on lots of blogs, any ideas?
as you can tell in these 3 we closed off the doorway from the kitchen nook and extended the cabinets all the way down to give us more storage and counter top space. i love these counters, they are quartz which are a man made stone and unlike granite you never have to reseal them. i got a great deal on the appliances from some one on Craigslist and got the stove, dishwasher, and microwave for the price of stove i was going to get and they were all brand new. i don't really like things on the counters so i have everything out that i would use (toaster, tea kettle, butter, oil, etc) on that one counter than just a few things other than that it looks kind of sparse so i may need to put some stuff out? my favorite part of the kitchen by far is the glass tile back splash LOVE it!
so basically that is the kitchen. if i get some pictures up in my family room this weekend i will probably post that room next week?!
