Well, our kitchen has been done since Easter and I just never got around to taking pictures. Anyway, I finally remembered to do it and I can’t wait for you to see how great it looks. We didn’t change any of the layout or functions, so I’ve haven’t had any adjustment in that sense. I’d gotten so used to how nice it all is, that I was shocked how bad it was when looking back at pictures. The kitchen was the last room to get a makeover because I really didn’t think it was that bad and really it was Dave’s idea to do anything to it. But now I can’t believe what a difference a couple coats of paint, a new countertop/sink and white appliances can make.
I fall in love with this little house all over again every time I take a step back and realize how cute it really is.
To summarize the work we (Dave and a friend did most of the real work) did, I’ll list it here before you see the amazing results:
- Paint Cabinets
- New Countertop
- New Sink and Faucet
- Coat Rack
- New (to us) Stove
- New (to us) Fridge
- New Light Fixture
- New Range Hood
- Magnetic Knife Board
- Extra Surface between Fridge and Range (This is amazing, it added 30% more counter space and filled a really awkward gap in the kitchen.)

And here are shots of just about every angle of the room:
