Can you tell how excited I am? I never thought I'd see the day. It was almost as if we were hypothetically going to re-do the kitchen. We decided to work on it in stages so that we are not with-out kitchen for a very long time. I get sick of take out pretty quickly.
Here's stage one, cabinets around the fridge:
Dave is building a frame to go behind the cabinets and fridge since apparently we bought the largest fridge known to man.
The frames for the cabinets are up:
IKEA has really great dividers to help organize the inside of cabinets (this makes me a little too excited). We have a place to keep Sammy's food now, lets just hope that she doesn't learn how to open it on her own, which is highly likely.
Wall before (note floor underneath, black with orange and yellow swirls niiiiice)
Wall after: (we still need to put on the handles and trim work around the base and top)
Next project for the day, paint the walls and put up the cabinets on the other side of the kitchen. Here's what our porch now looks like after Dave's late night IKEA run. Sammy can hardly contain her enthusiasm.
Before we paint we need to figure out a paint color. The newest on the wall is called Water Drops by Benjamin Moore. What do you think, too bright? I can't tell if the color would look really good, or be a humongous mistake. Dave wants to paint now, and I don't have a color picked out!
