I spent most of the day yesterday trying to get some things back in order from our kitchen renovation. I was so sick of my outdated, cramped, red kitchen! I recruited hubby, bless his heart, to help me. He is not the most patient person, especially when it comes to remodeling projects. But it looks so much better now! We ripped out all the cabinets, put in unfinished base cabinets (I plan to paint them white), a speckled black counter top, beadboard on the walls, and a new faucet. For now I am going to use open shelving on the walls. I may add some upper cabinets later...when money and time allows. This is how the kitchen looked before. (Excuse the mess!):
See that cabinet on the right? I had begun stripping the paint so that I could begin painting my cabinets white. Those cabinets are history, now. Actually, a neighbor came and got them from the side of the road, so someone has benefited from them. See how cramped the kitchen was? Look at it after the new cabinets were put in:
I got it out of my late grandmother's house. It seems my granddaddy (whom I never knew) built it. It has history. It has character. It means something. I love special touches that add character to my home. However, it needed a bit of an update. This is what it looks like now:
We still have a ways to go before the kitchen renovation is done, so I'll update along the way. I'm so excited to have a new kitchen! It is so fun to change things up. It keeps things interesting.
