Anyway, enough justifying. I don't know why I feel so guilty about wanting a gorgeous kitchen, especially since we'll be doing this on a very modest budget. We've toyed with the idea of doing a mini-renovation because I am SO sick of not having any prep area and would love to buy this island to use until David can build a permanent one during our full renovation. I think it would repurpose really well in our laundry room to use as a folding station after it's served its purpose in the kitchen. However, we'll see how things unfold as we work on all the other projects.
So, let's start with a tour of how the kitchen looked when we bought it. It was a tiny little square with a wall that separated it from the living and dining room.
1. This hardware in the center of the door. I mean, what?! It's so bizarre and they're kind of atrocious. I will NOT miss them.
It's the best! I love it! Let me tell you, lots of bad words under my breath.
this blog renovation that is almost identical to our house layout. Seeing their before and after gave me so much hope! They started with essentially the exact same kitchen we have and I would like to copy most of this (thought I'd like to add just a little color here and there). Can you envision it???
