Our Current Kitchen

August 26th, 2011

Mr. Project is hard at work on the new kitchen cabinets (sink side). He says that they’ll be installed by Wednesday, though they’ll still have to be painted.  But we’re getting so close I can almost taste it! So as a review, here is what we started with:

And the “during” when the two walls were removed:

And then when the new windows were installed:

And what it looks like now:

I love my wall of windows! This is the side that will be installed next week, right now we use it for prep and storage.

The other side houses the microwave, the new stove, the really really old stove and the new fridge. This is the most unfinished part of the house, and I can’t wait until its ripped out and finished!

So thats what we’re living with right now. Mr Project estimates that it will all be finished by the end of October, but there will be some great progress points along the way that give us a workable kitchen and show the light at the end of the tunnel.  I’ll update in about a week!

    Jen, is that a POOL I see outside? Jealous!

    Taking out the wall was probably the best idea. It really opens up the space. We need to come visit soon.

    Jen, I started following your blog because of your remodeling projects and your wonderful descriptions and designer blocks. I had no idea that you were a fabric and scrapbooking paper designer as well. I just saw all your product today in our Archivers store and almost broke the bank wanting to buy it all. I just love your style. You are truly a talented lady and I am amazed at how you are able to accomplish so much. You are one of my favorite blogs. I love your Ollie stories also. I am a grandmother so stories about raising little ones just tugs at my heart especially when they are so obviously from the heart.

    Thanks so much Beth! You are so sweet. I am so glad that you like my blog, comments like that make it all worth while. We are having so much fun with our little boy and I just try and get as much work done while he’s sleeping!!
