Ok, you've been warned and you have had time to decide if you will proceed. Now let's see what you are really made of.
Scream...fall on the floor in disbelief and disqust....My eyes, my eyes, please someone poke them out now!!!
That's right. It's my kitchen, or more appropriately my dungeon....There has been a reason that you have never seen my kitchen on any of my posts. I spend a lot of time in this kitchen and it's all painful. I'm a cook. I love to cook but I HATE this kitchen, in case you don't get the picture, let me count the reasons:
- No counter space
- Too small
- Galley kitchens are not for people who cook
- My countertops are green...ugly, ugly green
I am not in a position to enlarge my kitchen at this time and that is what is going to happen in the next 3-5 years or I'm going to walk. It's me or the kitchen. For now, I'm biting the bullet and doing a mini remodel. I work fulltime, so this is going to take me forever. Bear with me through this journey and hopefully, before Christmas, I'll have that wonderful all encompassing post that shows all is finished.
- Paint the cabinets - add new trim In progress
- Add new undercounter lighting In progress
- Retile the backsplash
- Paint the walls to compliment the new cabinet color
- Install countertops
- Install planking to the ceiling
- Replace some appliances
- Install shutters in the breakfast nook
Here is a little peak at my new and improved cabinets.
