You liked the brown right? hahaha Well here it is again from the other side…..
Now for some close ups: This is the spot next to the dishwasher that had to be torn out in order to have a dishwasher in the first place. We have lived here for 4 years, and have yet to fix this…. so this is where our recycle lives.. i probably could have emptied it for the photo. Also, notice the layers of paint on the inside of the cupboards!!
Right across the way from the recycle is the stove….. again, it was fit for an old larger stove, and when that was taken out, it left a big empty gap… now the home for the garbage can!! My dog loves it!! grrr….. Also take note, that in order to hang the over the range microwave we had to cut out the cabinet, thus leaving us with no doors to hide all of the above…. another grrr….
And luck would have it that now 60 years later…. fridges are bigger, and those cabinets had to be cut out as well. Yea we could have fixed them, but we knew in the long run that they were not going to be staying, we just didn’t plan on it being this long.
And then there was the sink! Well first off… it leaks, and has from day 1!! We’ve fixed it over and over, but we have to re-do all the pipes. There is nothing worse than a leaky sink is there? To be honest, a huge part of me is relieved that we have finally found the time to contact a plumber to sort out the issue once and for all. If you would like to learn more about how a plumber can help to fix any leaks in your kitchen, you can visit website here. Second, notice the front plate thing missing?? Annoying, and again I could have done something for that too, but I thought that the longer it looked ugly, the faster the hubs would agree to a remodel. No such luck!!
And this is our tile backsplash??? Really??? what is that?!?!?! moving on…..
This cupboard has always bothered me. You cant reach anything in the far top corner, so it’s just wasted space…. I cant wait to tear that one down!!!
Oh and the floor…. we re-finished the hardwood floors 2 years ago, but unfortunately there was no oak under the kitchen linolium….. so i lived with it like this for the past years, and cannot cannot wait to have the wood floors finished thoughout!! Squeeallll!! It will just be a relief when our home has finally been completed. And I especially can’t wait to see what our wood floors will look like when they’ve been fitted throughout. The first time round it took us ages to find the right design of Engineered Wood Flooring and at one point I even thought that we wouldn’t find one that we liked. But finally we did, and now we’re going to have it throughout the house. Have I told you how excited I am?
Here is what they called a dining room… with a family of 5… i have no clue how you expect everyone to fit in there AND have room for a table to eat at. I have BIG BIG plans for this little nook!! (ignore the tools please)
And last but not least… this is the small pile of new things just waiting to be torn into and put to use in the new kitchen!!
