Kitchen Progress

Our kitchen has been on a standstill for the past few weeks.  I've been a little discouraged with the lack of speed & time that we've not had to complete this one room in our house.

Sergio & I planned on starting and finishing one room at a time.  That was too optimistic.  In reality, we're all over the board.  There are projects going on everywhere around the house.

We've completed a little more than what is shown in these pictures.  I can't wait to show off the cabinet makeovers.  They are truly unbelievable and cost efficient.

The before pictures were taken while the previous owners were still in the home.




We've added our black, side by side fridge & filled up the cabinets with all our kitchen goodies.

 


This wall's to-do list:

  1. Replace our oven.
  2. Open up the wall above the stove to be used as a pass through to the dining room.  
  3. Add beadboard on top of the cream tile.
  4. Change out the outlets. 
  5. Change out the light fixtures.
  6. And of course, add the cabinets.
 
It is much brighter in there.  It's amazing what a few coats of white, oil-based paint can do for a dated kitchen.


Beadboard will line the side of the island where there is currently wood paneling.  Check out the new cabinets hanging out in the family room.  Sergio has worked hard at making a great trim for each of the 25 cabinets. 

We could not have come this far without the help of some of our dear friends.

Thank you to Rob M., David N., Ashley & Liz E., Chris & Lena L., Andy & Crystal M., Stephanie W. and Kent & Melinda R.!!  You all are truly appreciated & loved dearly!!  "Mi casa es su casa!"

  1. I am so excited to see what you will do with your kitchen. My old kitchen is still looking a lot like your before pictures. Some day I will get to redo my kitchen too.

  2. Our houses are very similar! We need to have you all over for dinner! We hope to be able to have people over comfortably by the end of July. I really miss your family & want us to get together soon...maybe at the lake???
