With a new home and a full summer, we decided to renovate our 50 year old kitchen. It's a small kitchen and everything is in working order, but it was just old--old cabinets, old flooring, no dishwasher....you get the idea. Here's a quick recap of our lovely house
Our cozy, fabulous house.
The Kitchen: Before (don't mind the mess)
Stay tuned for pictures of the during and after.
THE DESIGN: My dad's wife, Kelly, has a brilliant father, Jack, who is an architect by trade. While my Dad and Kelly were in New York for the holidays, I sent pictures and measurements with the assignment of a new kitchen plan. I was not expecting what they returned with. A brand new kitchen plan that will make use of every square inch of our small kitchen. Having a new person look at the design, Jack came up with a plan that none of us could have dreamed of. He moved some things around and included more cabinet and counter space than we could ask for. It's absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see it complete. To work with this plan, we needed to add a back door. So to start the kitchen remodel, we added that door to the back wall so we can have access to the backyard. Here are those pictures:
Pretty cool right?!?!
It's July 22 and we now have the dumpster taking up our driveway and a full plan to get it done in a week. My dad will be joining us Saturday (July 24) and taking on the project with Andrew's help. Here goes nothing and here's to a full kitchen renovation with no hitches. We'll see if that happens, but wish us luck! Please check back often as I will be updating often with our progress over the week.
