And here it is now....no wallpaper, fresh paint, and new flooring (and the hallway now leads to our brand spankin' new laundry room!)
Here's the view of the kitchen from the hallway pictured above. I do love the new flooring and refrigerator!
This little waste of space is to the right of the refrigerator. We never use this door...it's old and definitely not too energy efficient. When we redo the kitchen, it's coming out! (Although in the meantime, it's a nice spot to hang aprons and put the dog dishes).
Ahhh....where to begin? The paint above the cabinets started coming off like crazy when we removed the wallpaper. Three of the cabinet doors have been stripped, we were planning to paint them all white, but the project stalled when we realized the amount of time and energy it would take to redo all the cabinets that will be coming out eventually anyways. (We do have plans drawn up for the future, and this whole wall is coming out to make one big kitchen/dining room!)
Here's a close-up of my stunning dishwasher....as in, I'm stunned the thing still works!
An even closer close-up....we just assume that the correct button to push is the one that's been used the most :)
The drawers are definitely sold wood. Unfortunately, they create this fine sawdusty mess on everything below. Don't worry, I wash all the stuff before I use it.
Having a somewhat mischevious toddler, you never know what you'll find....

|The only source of light is from two spotlights on a track!|
|I feel like my 16 month old might have as much kitchen storage as I do!|
