Kitchen-- before and after

I thought I took enough pictures before we started renovation... I have since learned that you can never take enough pictures when updating-- because, sometimes, you have to go back and look. You have to remind yourself how far you have come in order to keep going. Renovating a house is a beast. A financial beast, an emotional beast, a time consuming beast- but, in the end (with this house, at least) it has been worth it. We could never have afforded to buy this house move-in-ready. But, it's the way we want it, with our touches of love that make this house our home.

Now, if anyone wants to buy it... you can consider it sold! :)

Please see how far we have come in the kitchen.

This was going to be a spice rack, then a shelf, then nothing, until it finally became clear that unless we did something, it would remain nothing.


Not a bad transition, right? 


remember this place...


here is what it looks like today...
