Kitchen, from bad to good


This was our kitchen one year and one month ago....


We had zero counter space and even with the pantry that was exactly where I was standing, very little storage space. To put it in perspective, I had one drawer. That's right, one drawer in the ENTIRE kitchen. Given that I am not the best at keeping things organized, it was not the best kitchen for me.

Not to mention the fake oak cubboards. Really stylin' let me tell you.

We'd been talking for years about installing new cubboards and last October we bit the bullet and did it. It was a long month and the laminate floor installation was a bit tense - I love you honey 'cause you did it!

This is our kitchen now.....

AHHHHHHHHHHHH.

That's exactly what I said while cooking the first meal in it once it was complete. I have miles of counter space now thanks to Abe at Home Depot who suggested moving the sink to the corner. And way more storage space thanks to the pots and pan drawers and extra deep cubboard over the fridge. Abe rocks!

And I am so proud of Jay, who is learning as he goes and saving us big bucks! You rock too Honey!
