The Kitchen

First of all, heads up, this is going to be a LONG post full of LOTS of pictures.


Yes my friends, the kitchen is just about done. Done enough for me to post pictures anyways! Let me tell you - it is HARD work remodeling your own kitchen. It takes soo much work. I have to say that Stuart put a tremendous amount of work in. We still have a few other things left to do, but they are little jobs (i.e. a new faucet, the two lights, a few outlet covers and knobs on the cabinet drawers) but those will be easier jobs we can do here and there. The bulk of it is done! First, I want to show you what the kitchen looked like when we bought the house:

And and and . . . The finished product. I am SO happy with it!

I love it!!! Especially the floor!! Great job!! Ok---so I have a question...we really wanted to do wood floors or maybe tile in our kitchen...but we were told that we would have to take up the baseboards...so we were too scared to attempt it. But it looks like you guys left the baseboards down...or are my eyes deceiving me??? Love the wall color and the new drapes!! Great job!!
