This is the other side of the kitchen. There was no counter space for me to put pots or ingredients when I cooked on the stove. So I would have to walk back and forth to the counter constantly. And the microwave was mounted really high up. Seriously? How did people in the 1930's do it? They cooked all the time and didn't go out to eat like we do. I love to cook but it was tough in this kitchen. So after about a year of this we decided to take the plunge and renovate.
Cabinets going in! We found these at the ReStore (after many weeks of searching).
Things are coming together! During this time we ate a lot of food that I had cooked beforehand and frozen, this way I wouldn't have to worry about cooking and we didn't need to eat out all the time.
Counter tops and sink! And a dishwasher! I didn't realize how much I would miss having a dishwasher until I didn't have one for a year.
We got an awesome deal on the glass tile for the backsplash, it wa leftovers returned from another job. Since our kitchen is small we didn't need that much. We installed it ourselves to save even more money. I was pregnant at the time so I think this would have been an easier task if I didn't have a big belly in the way while leaning over the counter. Oh ya P.S.- this might be common knowledge for most people but I didn't know. Wipe off your grout in sections, don't wait until you have half the wall done. It will be almost dry and almost impossible to get off! My pain your gain!
Check out our faucet! It's one of those single handle ones!
