So our house is nothing fancy. It is a 16 y/o builder spec house.. which usually means no upgrades were added when it was built. I had no cabinet space to speak of which you ladies know can be a real sore spot. I decided this past summer enough was enough. I took my savings out and told hubby I was redoing the kitchen.. of course he really didn't see the point, but told me as long as I stayed within my budget it was fine with him. After hundreds of estimates and elbow grease we got it done.. and boy do I love it! It is definitely one of those things I will not regret .. ever!
So here are the before pics
we started with white linoleum floors, we put in the hard woods after a dishwasher flood. See the door closed off, that was to the dining room .. tell you about
that room later. That is the sum of the cabinets! The one on the end is a cheap cabinet from Home Depot for utilities.. not even for the kitchen.
in they go!
Here is end result... I am in love!
I have a large eating area so I decided to get rid of the "dining room" more to come with that room
Made the drapes with fabric from Joannes, the hutch came out of the dining room. It belonged to my husband's Aunt. We plan on doing a redo to it this summer. We hunted everywhere for a light fixture to match this one. We couldn't find anything so we bought one, took the fixtures lamps off and painted the plastic screws black so they wouldn't be noticeable.
Thanks for taking a look!
