After a few months a lot of decisions, we finally have a new kitchen! The old kitchen was basically original to the house with a few appliance updates through the decades. The 4 feet of formica and bottomless cabinets just weren't cutting it.
We had all new custom cabinets installed and did the granite countertops ourselves (ok so the boy spent hours cutting and sanding those but you know what I mean). We painted the original wood floors that were hiding under the layers of linoleum and added a few shelves to keep the space feeling open.
We tore out the old pantry in the laundry room too and created pull-out cabinets for laundry, trash and recycling.
We still have some decorating to do but I am thrilled to have such a functional space to cook and bake. I can't wait for Thanksgiving this year :)
