A Kitchen Update.

So, apparently 1 post a year is all I can handle. Good grief that is pathetic. But, when things move at a snails pace around here what do you expect. Let's get down to business shall we.

With Nick working out of town these days we have been trying to get in at least one good project when he is home. In December we decided to tackle the kitchen. Here is a before shot...way before...just to refresh your memory.

We gutted it, replaced some things and got it just functional enough. Then it sat for the past couple of years. Just. Like. This.

First thing on the list was cabinet doors. These were made by Nick and his dad and I can't tell you how nice it is to have everything closed off. We still need hardware and two of the doors were cut a bit short. But, it's getting there.

The island serves as our pantry and it is so nice and so frustrating, especially now that it's Amos' favorite place to play/tear apart. We are still mulling around with a few re-configurations to create an actual pantry and get the laundry out of the kitchen. But, it will probably be another couple of years before those come to fruition.

These open shelves were built by Nick and his dad and I am in love with them. LOVE. It's so nice to be able to reach up and grab a dish off the shelf, plus it's fun to decorate. We still plan on tiling the walls and replacing the light above the kitchen sink. Baby steps.

There are still so many things we want to do in this space, but for now it feels good to have a few things crossed off the list.
