Our Kitchen Saga

Back in February I discussed how a single overflowing toilet did amazing damage to our home (How Bad Can it Get?? Apparently Worse… ).  Here’s a pictorial history of the Kitchen Saga (and one reason I’ve not been blogging very much lately!):

So, our kitchen is done (less light rail, still to be installed). We added some neat features that make life easier, like racks to put trays upright and a neat spice rack from Lowe’s. My favorites are extending the countertop so the kids can eat at the island (and keeping our Jennair gas cooktop by just replacing some parts) AND  that we replaced a lousy dark closet with a pantry where the shelves each pull out. Now I know what we have to eat! My husband also came up with the cool idea of putting lights up on top of the cabinets which shine out over the molding. We are VERY happy with the new kitchen.

Now, if one of us can just get a job to pay for all of this. Sigh…!

  1. Who knew your husband was so handy. Send him a happy birthday from Sam. I hope you’re doing well. The kitchen looks great.
