I finally got around to taking pictures of the finished cabinets and floors in our kitchen. It took forever to put the hardware on since the holes on the drawers needed to be adjusted. But it's finally donzo!
We had the cabinets professionally painted with oil based paint since I was pregnant. Ryan thought about doing it himself but he didn't want to drag it out so the fumes would be limited in the house. We actually stayed at a friends house the whole week they were getting painted. (Thanks Nate & Janet!) Plus, it's really tricking to paint oak cabinets and still have a smooth finish. The floors were finished awhile ago when they did the whole house. Here was the after of our living room showing the new floors. We just thought some nice rich floors would pop better then the light tiles and be softer on the feet while cooking in the kitchen.
Painted cabinets, new floors, new hardware and new stove! The back of the old stove went right up under the microwave so we had to bend down to see it. We also like the look of an integrated stove.
You can tell I have some Christmas decor out and can see all the wonderful Christmas cards we've been receiving all over the fridge. We also got a new dishwasher because the old one didn't seem to clean our dishes very well, and we loved the one we had just bought in our old house in Kansas City. Finally, we also purchased a new fridge as we left our old one in the house we sold.
This is just another view of the before to really show you what the old hardware looked like and to show you how the stove went right up under the microwave.
So that's been our progress in the kitchen. Next up, I'll be posting some of our Christmas decor this year in the new house.
