Well, not the most becoming pictures of our kitchen as we know it, but we did want to capture the "Before" and "In Between" shots before everything came tumbling down.
Hubby was here to supervise or "help"; they tried salvaging for Restore, but it got too difficult, and the cabinets are almost 20 years old anyway, more than past their prime. Ian loves this stuff; a great time for me to visit with one of my new nieces for the day as well.
There's no turning back now! But you know what? I am so pumped about this ... a brand spankin' new kitchen is on its way! When we were first married I loved to cook, all the time, trying out new recipes. My coworkers were always wondering what leftovers I would bring for lunch the next day! But since we've had kids, it's been tough to be creative, I tend to stick to a lot of the staples (ie. things THEY will eat). It's not the same as being able to crack open a bottle of wine, turn on some soothing Diana Krall, and leisurely cook up a lovely candlelit dinner. No cooking for the next few weeks, which doesn't sound so bad about now. We're hoping that a new kitchen will inspire me.
And I don't have to be here for a lot of it! Kids are the best excuse to vacate a construction site. Whoot!!
