Isn't this kitchen picture lovely? I saw a picture of a similar kitchen in a Home and Garden's magazine and thought it looked like mine. OK...not like mine, but I thought of my kitchen's potential.
Here is my kitchen. It's OK for a kitchen. The pluses were that there was lots of counter space and a great pantry. Everything was functional. There were a few minuses. The sink was small and it was hard to fit much in it. The counter tops were kind of nasty (especially if you looked underneath them.) Overall there wasn't too much to complain about. But you know what happens when you see somethings potential. You have to act!
Here is the first step of my makeover. It was the hard part. Painting the cabinets took a lot longer than I thought. I took a few brakes, some because we couldn't untighten some of the stubborn screws for a while. But it took me about a month to complete.
After the hard part came the fun part. We got a sweet deal on counter tops at Home Depot. I picked a quarts rather than granite. It is harder and so it doesn't chip. (I can attest to this because I accidentally dropped a hammer on the first day.) It also doesn't need any maintenance-so no resealing! It's great for kids too since it has anti-bacterial stuff already in the counter top. And it's so smooth and wonderful....
As an afterthought I had my friend Ariel back splash the wall. It's not grouted yet. I am so glad that I decided to do that because the sink's faucet can make some serious splashing. Also, no more wiping spaghetti drips and canning splatters of of paint. Yea!
My favorite part of the remodel? The sink! No more crud around the faucet plate. No more stacked up dishes because they don't fit in the sink. Seriously people, it is so great. The price of the plumber to rearrange our pipes under the sink...not so great. But did I mention that the sink was free with our Home Depot deal? So no worries.
OK. If you didn't get a good picture of how deep the sink is. Here is another that has my huge caner pot in it. Just fabulous. Can you tell that I'm excited? I love my kitchen.
