Here are some before pics. They don't really do it justice, you can't quite make out the peeling formica on the counters, the linoleum worn so thin that it could not be cleaned, the stained glass light fixture that is straight out of TGIF.riday's...but you'll get the general idea.
It's messy but you can see the really dark cabinets, covered in 30 years worth of grease that won't wash off, barely any counter space, and the huge gap between the dishwasher and fridge with the insulation of the dishwasher hanging out.
Are you ready??????
First he raised the cabinets by 5 inches. We had about a 6 in gap between the cabinets and the ceiling before. It was my cat's favorite spot in the whole house but he'll get over it. He also moved everything over about 4 inches. It gives us a little more counter space but just makes everything look a little neater. The biggest plus was the new cabinets. We had all this wasted space in the corner before but the angled cabinet and the Lazy Susan make such a difference. We were unpacking everything today and don't know what to do with all the space!
Here's the new color. And you can see a bit of the floor, and Hobbes' tail!
Here's a better pic of the floor...and my kitty. I can not wait to cook tomorrow night! (don't repeat that to anyone and do not let Mr H know). I honestly didn't even mind washing dishes tonight.
Off to finish un-packing everything!! Hope you all like it!
