Kitchen Conquered!

We’ve conquered the kitchen . . . finally!

Last night, after three weeks of hard work in the kitchen and a few months of thinking about the project, we finally assembled our “modern country” kitchen and reveled in the finished product. Though at times the project appeared to be impossible, we finished the darn thing.

Despite sore backs, tens of trips to home depot, and some serious cursing, we couldn’t be happier with the project. We gained good lighting, a new floor, a new faucet, a dishwasher, and a butcher-block kitchen island. Gone are the ugly vinyl floor, vertical blinds, and the dish rack!

So, to get on with it all, here are some pics of the kitchen before , during, and after our project. I wish the pictures did the space better justice!

BEFORE (a few incarnations: first when we bought the place, then soon after we moved in, and then last year)
