Kitchen reno update {also known as, I miss my sink the most!}


Donnie and I started a small remodeling project back in the fall.  Are remodeling projects ever small?  Almost 6 months later, we can finally imagine how the finished product may look.  Sadly, so sadly, I forgot to take a picture of the kitchen before we started.  Picture this:  cabinets with antique glaze gone bad (um, yellow to be exact), dark green “marble” formica, a 27″ Spacemaker all electric stove (turns out you can’t replace those since the standard is 30″), not one level or square surface, and just a general mess.

Please pardon the pictures from ye old cellphone, but here is stage 1 with everything torn out 4 weeks ago:

Stage 2:  Cabinets, no countertops, 3 weeks ago

And a sneak peek at the countertops and a sample of white subway tile as the backsplash:

Side note, the subway tile is installed with double-sided tape.  We are STILL waiting for the faucet.  Word is it should be here by Monday…and then we will have a sink again! Who knew we’d miss the sink more than any of the appliances?  Ha!

We’ve really had fun with this project, even though it stresses me to the max to make decisions about finishes and appliances.  Having wonderful contractors, major awesome cabinet makers, and talented friends and family to bounce ideas keep me sane has made it all bearable!

Hopefully I can share the finished product next week 🙂
