(and can I just preface these pictures with saying I never want to do a kitchen remodel again?!? At least while I'm living in it...) Man! It was a nightmare at times.
But now that it's finally OVER, I've gotta admit- it's sooo nice. I'm loving it.
So let's get to it! Shall I show you some before's and after's?
(cue drum roll...)
Before, our little kitchen was closed off with this wall and small doorway.
|But now, it's completely open and spacious, and we ran the same hardwoods throughout for better flow.|
Here's that same wall from the dining room side...
|And now it's gone!|
|We added this entire wall of cabinetry and countertops, as well as widened the entrance to the kitchen.|
We are loving it! This place got entirely gutted and re-done. Thankfully we already had the appliances, (we've been replacing them as they've died) but now there's new cabinetry, granite countertops, recessed lighting, a white subway tile backsplash and a different layout, especially the new cabinetry on the other wall.
So now it's down to the finishing touches like decorating, but that's the fun part, right?
Here's to many more years of making meals and hosting students in this place! Cheers!
