After living with it for Ten.Long.Years., the kitchen is finally getting a facelift! We have already upgraded the furnace (twice!), the hot water tank (also twice!) the electrical, the plumbing and the roof, so it was time. Our kitchen is kind of quirky, and the cabinets were all made to order, 70 years ago! Previously, the kitchen was a bedroom for the two times ago owners, who had 13 children that took up the whole upstairs and then some I imagine. But when the Dr and his family moved in back in the 40's, he turned the then-kitchen (now our back room) into his treatment room, waiting room, and office and turned the downstairs bedroom into the kitchen. I think his wife did some updating in the 70's when the Dr passed away but it was pretty much 1940's original when we moved in, in 2001.
Here are some befores
Here are some 'durings'
Logel Appliance in Strykersville, and if you are local, you need to go there for all your appliances! They have buildings full of gorgeous scratch and dents that you can hardly tell are damaged. Ours wasn't (it was a factory closeout) and they have brand new appliances too. I was eying up a really nice stainless steel, gas double oven range but nothing else is stainless in the kitchen (and we didn't want to upgrade anything else at this time) and we would have had to run a gas line to the kitchen. But I'm extremely happy with the one we got. I also really love the sink (it's extra deep) and the pull out faucet and soap dispenser. The hanging plates art I first saw on Oh She Glows and I loved it and got it at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Here's the close up of the tile
I'll be back with photos of our back room makeover next! Any renos in your future?
