Kitchen Update

September 8, 2011

On a lighter topic of housing renovations, here is a lil’ update in photos. We’re getting there slowly but surely. It has been an exciting process. More exciting than Brenda’s spring formal with Dylan. Golly, he is dreamy. (I think I have used that line before.)

It has also been a rather grueling process when you work from home and given the current familial circumstances.

But, it’s like having a puppy. Totally worth it once it’s potty trained.

I think Gigi needs a puppy.

This is the before of the kitchen. Mind you, we’re doing a bit more than a kitchen renovation but kitchens are the most important part of homes. It’s where everyone gathers no matter the size or shape. I like how there are actual doors to close off the kitchen. I haven’t seen those since the 60s before I was even in the womb.

Don’t you just love the faux green plantery? It totally screams environmentally friendly. I wanted to keep it so we could boast about how “green” we are but the ‘Puter Hub was scared about having fake vines sprouting out of a stair rail.

Here is a shot during the renovation. We knocked down some walls to open up the space and bring in more lighting. It was a bit more drab than Ben Stein’s voice saying “Bueller, Bueller.” Now it’s light and airy. Like a gay fairy godmother. Swoon.

As you can see, we gutted it entirely. By we, I mean, our trusty contract crew. The ‘Puter Hub’s hands hurt from writing checks. He has got major caluses on his index and middle fingers. It is a tough job but someone has to write that check. Someone also has to help deposit money into the account so the check doesn’t bounce. It’s a dirty, dirty job.

Anyway, so we also installed new French doors to welcome the light on in. Glorious, eh? We also opted for hardwood flooring throughout. When you have a four-legged furry friend, hardwoods are a must-have.

More updates to come as the cabinets have been installed. The appliances are almost there and our delicious river white granite stone was installed yesterday.

I am more excited than Donna Martin when she graduated! (I think I’ve used that line before as well.) Oops.
