Here's what the kitchen looked like before we moved in. The only thing we changed after moving in was taking down wall paper and painting the walls red.
This was looking at the kitchen from the dining room. Please note the white carpet and how little of the kitchen you can actually see.
Yeah, it was super fun to try to keep small children out of this mess.
I'm sure this picture was probably taken some night at about 1:00 in the morning. Chad worked diligently late into many nights to get everything done before the cabinets were to be installed. He also did all the plumbing and some of the electrical work. Sometimes being married to a plumber has its perks, ya know? Can I just say, my husband totally rocks! This was all a labor of love, people.
Looks great, right?! Please note the cool backsplash and light fixtures that Chad also installed. But wait! Still needs new flooring since we had holes where old cabinets had been, and needed to get rid of that (totally stained) white carpet.
Tada! New flooring! Installed by Chad and the best father-in-law ever!
Doesn't it look about 100x bigger?! I love how open it is between the two rooms now. So much more family friendly! I can actually see the boys playing in the family room now while I make supper.
Check out that beautiful normal-sized oven! Love it!
We're still finishing some projects in the family room, but I'll be sharing pictures of that too when it's more picture ready.
