kitchen remodel- part 1
This is the kitchen I have known and loved for the past 15 years. And had it not been for the flood, it would have remained that way. BUT, that would not be the case. This past weekend we began our kitchen remodel.
So, I would like to record a few facts before we bid farewell to my old kitchen.
~ it is pretty much the same as when the home was built back in 1979.
~ we did remove the cabinets that hung over the counter on either side of the sink and reinstalled them as end-caps on either side of the galley kitchen. (Pyrex collection to the right/ glasses to the left)
~ Randy installed sheets of glass inside the two upper cabinet doors. I love that look.
~ Randy replaced the fluorescent lighting around the sky light, with track lighting.
~ Oh, and Randy installed my German-made faucet, that requires it's own special post in the very near future. Heck, it cost more than my first car!
Ok, so we're on our way. No turning back. And at times we wonder what we've gotten ourselves in to and pray, God help us.
Oops, forgot to put away the frozen turkey left on the counter after unloading some heavy freezer items.
My handy handsome husband is doing all the demolition and well, what can I say? He's amazing and talented and just the best husband ever!
SO, are you in for the long-haul? Cuz I plan to blog about the whole kitchen transformation. And I would love for you to come along for the ride. Hang on, it could be a wild one, with a lot of twists & turns... but I'm thinking blogging just may be the only way I will get through these next couple months. So stay with me.
I'm gonna need you.
