I am so happy to say, that even though it’s not done, my kitchen is finally a place I truly enjoy being in! Check it out. I’ll try and point out everything we did for you.
I gave these sneek peek photos on facebook.
Pretty much the whole kichen is brand new. I absolutely love the glass doors. It makes this otherwise cramped space feel more open and friendly.
By bringing the door frame down we were also able to thread some electrical through the wall and put the lightswitch on the other side. The fridge is no longer in the way of it!
Speaking of the fridge, we also placed a water line in the sub flooring so our ice maker actually makes ice now, whodathunk!
We still need to finish the backsplash, add the toe kick to the bottom of the cupboards, trim the doorway and add a light over the sink. After that, it will be officially done.
The biggest problem we ran into here was the plumbing.Nothing was up to code, and we’ve never worked with plumbing before. Sadly the consequence to that is another flooded basement, and a call to the professional plumbers. They were great though and taught is some things for future DIY attempts.
Now how about my other before project? Baby Prince arrived 5 days after his due date, and at almost a month old this is how that project turned out
At 10lbs 6oz now, and on a schedule. I couldn’t have asked for a better baby (fingers crossed that I don’t jinx it by continually bragging about him, but really I’ve never had this good of a kid!)
