Kitchen Update

Although it was a bit of a hassle in the end, the big floor show came and went this fall. There’s a long and rambling story (of course), and I may recount it in full over at homegirlstyle, but I haven’t decided yet.

This is how things looked the morning the floor was going to be taken out. At this point we had moved everything into the dining room, including the fridge, and things seriously started to look like an episode of “Hoarders.” Anyway. Just look at how ugly that floor is!

But the end result is fantastic—I love the Alice and Wonderland feel to the kitchen, and the floor just works with those orange walls…which also got a fresh coat in the process.

Repainting the cabinets is the next task, maybe new countertops, and definitely a new sink and faucet. We don’t really need a new range or dishwasher at the moment, so we’ll replace those as we go, or if we find a particularly good deal. Just because we don’t need it yet, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been looking for a new stainless-steel gas range. Can’t hurt!

But I’m really glad we got this project out of the way. It was long-overdue on the list.
