Our Kitchen: Before and After
On October 29, 2016 (Walter's 30th birthday), it happened. We moved into our house! We celebrated by a having a moving in/ birthday party. Walter's gifts were helping hands cleaning and moving our furniture and boxes.
We love it here, but it did take some mental adjusting before it felt like home. We are almost a month in and still putting the small things in place (but according to most you will always be fixing or working on something).
Today, I'm going to show you the kitchen. I think on the first post, I had said we would be keeping the trim and not much else. Well, we didn't keep anything. Absolutely everything in the kitchen is new from the plumbing and electric to the floor and the ceiling.
Enough words. I know my readers want pictures. You probably didn't even read this intro.
Before: The kitchen cabinets were small. The exit from the kitchen was a doorway which led to a tiny hall. There was one flush mount light in the center of the room. A layers of laminate flooring covered the slightly water damaged hardwood.
After: We raised the windows higher to allow more cabinet space. We removed the upper cabinets and added a range hood. Instead of a counter top with a back splash, we chose subway tile.

We are so thankful for this home. God has blessed us.
