Katie's Kitchen

One of the main reasons I haven't posted in so long is the total renovation of our kitchen area.  We completely gutted the room and started all over from scratch with new electric, plumbing, insulation, wallboard, ceiling etc.  It was a much larger undertaking than I thought and took far longer than expected but it was definitely worth it.

Here is the old, dark, dismal, cramped kitchen. It looks way better in the photo than it was in real life.

And here it is torn apart.

On it's way back together.

Here it is waiting for tile backsplashes and a big tile something or other over the stove.

Our tile installer got involved with a big job out in California and while I was waiting for his return I realized that tile would be too overwhelming.  That and I really wanted the darn room DONE!  So out came the paint, roller, blue tape, then starch & iron for the curtains.  A trip to Hobby Lobby for something to hang over the stove and it is finally finished! 

The west wall.

The north wall.

The south wall.

This has been a dream come true for me.  The kitchen has always been the center of our home and family and now it is the heart and soul as well.  We have already shared some great times together in this room and are looking forward to many more to come.

Til next time...
