Before and After

For the last couple of months I’ve been giving everyone random updates on our kitchen remodeling project. Since we’re almost finished, I figure it’s time to review.

As you can see, we didn’t redesign the layout of the kitchen. We liked where things were. We didn’t like counter tops that kept peeling up and shelves that were sagging. You’ll also note we painted the walls and put in new flooring.

The major change on the wall with the stove was the elimination of a desk that we never used. By replacing the desk with a cabinet, we gave ourselves more storage space and took away one of our grand-children’s favorite cubby holes. You can’t please everybody all the time!

The breakfast room also got a face lift as part of the project.

The other view of the almost completed project comes from standing near the sink and looking out into the dining room.

At this point, the new kitchen is totally functional… but not yet complete. My bride wants to put ceramic tile between the top of the counter and the bottom of the wall cabinets. We’ll probably go looking for tile in the near future.

In any case, we are proud of our accomplishments and extremely thankful to Dan Moore and Donnie Culver for their expertise and assistance.
