Ya know how some people will put pics of their food on Facebook, etc.... well I thought I'd finally add my first one. My 6 year old grand daughter made me the most delicious meal the other day. She assured me it had all the food groups that she learned in school! I had her pie and coffee for dessert, but failed to snag a pic of it since I scarfed it down so fast! ;o)
We spent the end of 2012 and pretty much all of 2013 remodeling our kitchen....doing what we could as we could. A project a good 20 years in the making! Of course now I know why my folks didn't get air conditioning until us kids were out of the house - less mouths to feed and a few extra pennies available! LOL
Anyway, I mentioned some time ago I'd share some pics and here's just a few.
I do need to mention that some call this a "galley" kitchen... I've always called it a "hallway after thought!" Yeah it's small, but I really wanted to do something to make it appear bigger. And, of course, now the red Formica counter tops are back "in". As for me, I guess I've just been retro and now ready to move on! hehehe
Here's one side: before
I love the white cabinets and dark blue counter tops!
I love the microwave over my 5 burner stove top!
Now I finally have more room for my big honkin' canners and pots!
If you can see it, there's one cutting board that has a pic of a lady doing laundry.
That was my gramma's. She passed in 2002 at the age of 98!
And the other side of the kitchen.... before....
I love my built in oven!
Getting older and the kind of work I do,
my back has issues, so not bending over to get something out of the oven or broiler is so awesome!
new pantry door...
I also love having room above the cabinets to put a few of my pretties!
To get the pic below I had to stand in the pantry! hawhawhaw
Well I love it and can't stop staring at it. If it was big enough to have a little tiny kitchen table and a couple of chairs I'd probably just sit in there and ooohhh and ahhhh.
