“Mom, I can’t find the plates,” one of my kiddos asked the other day. “Have you tried opening the cabinet door?”

 

So clean and ready for dinnertime.

Yeah, you know you’ve been renovating the kitchen too long when your kids (well, me too) can’t find anything because there are actually cabinet doors–yes doors–to open and close.

 

My blogging time has been swallowed up lately with painting, but good news, I’m almost done! Here’s a few photos of my progress. Hey, if you hold your hand over the bottom part of the kitchen it looks done.

 

Look closely, here’s what’s changed so far:

  • Countertops replaced
  • Cabinets painted
  • Hinges painted
  • New handles for all of the cabinets
  • Hood put in
  • Hood vented to the outside of the house (my neighbors can thank me later)
  • All new light fixtures
  • New stove
  • New fridge
  • Trash compactor…gone
  • Sink replaced (this one doesn’t leak)
  • Floors refinished

 

Whew! More to come
