Our Kitchen Project – COMPLETE!

It’s done!  Well, there are a few bits we’re waiting for delivery on (like a replacement cabinet door and some hinges and such), but we’ve moved back in and have a kitchen!  A long project, to be sure, but we are happy with the results!

And now… the much-anticipated BEFORE and AFTER shots!

BEFORE
(so much Before that we hadn’t moved in yet!)

It’s bright, and kitschy, but there were no cabinets and no counter space… and no refrigerator (it was a walk away in the pantry).  And the patterned floor may photograph well but was FILTHY and would not come clean!

AFTER

Photos were taken at night, so they’re not the brightest, but now there are cabinets! And counters! And more counters! And a refrigerator in the work triangle! And a peninsula to sit at! YES!
