The Kitchen

I think we are basically done with the kitchen. Eventually we’ll get the time/money to do a little more (such as counters, new cabinets, etc) but until then I absolutely love the kitchen.

May I present the Old kitchen
(when the house wasn’t ours)

Not a bad kitchen. Remember all the “stuff” isn’t ours. This was all the previous owners appliances. She did leave the fridge, oven, microwave & dishwasher.

And you remember some of these pictures right?

The first weekend assessing what I had to do

All the boxes from unloading kitchen stuff

Every time I’d get the cabinets clean they’d fill up again, it seemed never ending!

At the end of the first work weekend

Digging up Linoleum… sucky job!

After the first day of laying tile.

Finishing up laying tile

Grouting is so much fun!!!! haha… PC had to convince me I wasn’t icing a cake.

He got his fair share of grouting too.

Drum Roll Please……..

I want to present to you, Our Kitchen…..

Are you ready?

Can you handle it?

Am I getting annoying….?

Yeah I think so too….

Ok here you go….

Oh sorry got carried away… haha…

  1. New Floor
  2. New Wallpaper
  3. I painted the hooks above the cabinets and the self along the wall
  4. Our Kitchen is John Deere Themed (can you tell??)
  5. We moved our appliances in
  6. I’m not a big fan of clutter on the counters so I tried to keep it down. Some things just don’t go up though (ie mixer, toaster, etc).
We are extremely pleased with how it turned out. I found the tile on sale, 39 cents a square foot (so 39 cents a tile). Can’t beat that!!! We did crackle on the pegs. You paint it one color, put the crackle on and just as it dries you apply a contrasting color and it makes it look like old barn wood. Our original color was green with yellow over the crackle layer. So far all the appliances I had been gathering up since I was 16 years old. The only thing I bought was the blender that has a spic-it on it. I got it at the Wonderful World of Wal (aka Wal-Mart) on sale for $17. I figured it was meant to be… it’s green and everything.

Next up, I’ll have to show you the Mil Room or the Mother-in-law room as we call it. It’s also called a spare room.

Peace, Love & Remodeling
