Now You Can See It

It's tough to get a full view--but this is fairly good.

Note--this kitchen is now in use...knives, coffee pot, coffee grinder!





A cabinet over the refrigerator--a new item. And things previously stored on top of the frig are now nicely tucked away.


A fun corner cabinet--perfect for coffee mugs.



This is a kind of "before" photo--all the open counters with nothing on them. That soon changed.

Woo hoo--trash and recycle bins tucked away.


The highly popular storage cabine, just waiting to be filled.




Yes, you are correct--the coffee pot shown here is NOT the same as the one in the top photo--new kitchen, new coffee pot. ;-)



Note the one essential in our house--an electric tea kettle.





OK--enough said (and shown).
The next entry from the kitchen will be the return of Saturday soups. Stay tuned.

Donna, it looks GREAT! I really like it. I am sure you will enjoy this new kitchen very much! It looks like it was definitely worth the wait and the mess to get to. Enjoy!!

You will enjoy your new kitchen so much. The one thing I don't have that I wish I did is the hidden trash.

Great kitchen! I had my kitchen "refaced" in 2005, with new cabinet doors, new sink and faucet and new countertops. Couldn't afford new appliances though.

I really like your new floor too. Can I ask what it is??

I meant to say "May I ask what it is??"

Beautiful! And I know you'll enjoy every minute spent there. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.

Yes- Donna, what kind of counter top? And I like your floor too!

Folks, we decided to be sensible. The flooring is vinyl--can't remember which brand. And the counter tops are WilsonArt (formica).
Our old kitchen had vinyl floors and formica--and lasted for 30 years. We figure we won't be around that long...so why spend big bucks. ;-)

It looks fantastic!!

What a lovely and functional kitchen. And I'm so ready for soup!

Good for you for not jumping on the granite countertop/stainless steel appliance rage. I chose WilsonArt formica too for my countertops, although mine are in a non-shiny blue slate color. My old countertops were also formica that had been around since the late 60s, not a thing wrong with them--just wanted a different color scheme.

The new kitchen looks good! Will I be able to tell the difference in person, the next time we visit?

So you are a tea granny. As a child it was tea in our house. Never just a cup but by the pot,or two. By the age of four I had been trained to make a pot of tea properly. My years in the US got me hooked on coffee.

Your kitchen is lovely. I guess you want to be in it now and no longer need to be chained to the sink.

I imagine you cooking and baking and inviting one neighbour after the other over for tea. . . and a few ooos and ahaaas. Enjoy!

Oh, it's beautiful! I love the countertop. You've given me a few storage ideas too. It looks very warm and cozy.

Oh it looks gorgeous... I can just imagine the wonderful meals you'll make there!

Ginnie said...

Well, they say that the most comfortable room in any house is the kitchen...and I think you've proved that. Bon Apetit!

Wow Donna, it's so beautiful! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new kitchen!
