Hey y’all. Guess what. We have finally started remodeling our kitchen. We’ve talked about it since we first moved in almost 7 years ago. All the things we’ve wanted to do but didn’t think we could do or just never got around to. Lots of dreaming and plans that we never actually moved forward with. Well, except the new oven. Remember this old mini oven/microwave combo?
That thing couldn’t go fast enough. Thankfully the broiler didn’t work so we were able to have it replaced through our home warranty. We also had to replace our dishwasher when we got back from Korea. It only worked on some of the settings some of the time. Also thankful that the fridge was newish when we got the house and is still running fine.
So, moving on! I’ve been wanting to replace the shiny brass hardware for.ev.er but there is so much of it and that adds up fast. And then suddenly a couple weeks ago we decided maybe we should ‘fix up’ the kitchen. Why not? It can only add value to the house in the end, right? Hopefully haha. That turned into hours of watching Fixer Upper and other HGTV home shows. And then we started making plans. We can move the oven, get new counters, and new cabinets while we’re at it. How about we take out that weird little wall where the old 70s fridge used to be once upon a time. And lights. New lights. I hate the lights we have now.
And then, it HAPPENED. Doors came down, trim came off, and suddenly we were full blown tearing apart the kitchen. And by we I mean Thomas. I took pictures.
But lets back up a bit. Here is our kitchen before the tear down -
That’s what we’re starting with. Not horrible but not what we want in a perfect kitchen. Stay tuned for the next installment of The Great Kitchen Redo. I’ll be back with the tear the kitchen apart photos!
