|Mr. FixIt removing the upper cabinet doors |
in what was a very small pantry area.
We replace the window but now it is in the bathroom!
|The pantry with upper cabinets removed.|
|Mr.FixIt is standing where the wall dividing bathroom and pantry |
used to be.
|The new window!|
|The dresser we made into a vanity. See post here.|
|The chalkboard is where the doorway to the pantry was.|
|We stayed with white appliances as the fridge and microwave were only a year old. I am glad|
we did as I think anything else would have broken up the flow of the cabinets.
|This is the tile I ended up with and the outlet that gave me so much trouble-|
no longer an issue thanks to a little ingenuity and a well placed utensil jar!
|This is what it used to look like. And yes, my photo skills leave much to be desired.|
|That same corner now.|
There are still little things to tweak here and there. We want to put something over the refrigerator to cover the space between it and the cabinet above. I have to still fix the inside my utility cabinet on the side of the fridge. When I get around to that I will post more pictures.
I love the light and for that reason I have been dragging my feet on getting curtains up. I went looking for ready made ones but the ones I liked are not supposed to be washed. What good is that in a kitchen?! So, I have succumbed to the idea that I have to make them. I did buy fabric and have an idea of how I want them to look so when I get a free minute I will start on that.
It is September 1st! It has taken us six months to complete this project working nights and weekends. Mr. did take a week off at one point to get some intensified work done. We are very happy with the outcome.
Tomorrow is September 2nd and that means back to school. The girls and I will delving into the 19th century this year. I am looking forward to it now that things have returned to some form of normal for us around here. Of course, that is not to say that there are not other projects already in the works! Thanks for sticking with us through this renovation..... and stay tuned. There is always more to come.
