The Kitchen is Clean!....



So here are some photos of it as a continuation of Monday's post: My Talented Husband
It's an "economy-cottage kitchen" (a nice way of saying it's small!). My husband rebuilt the base cabinets that were falling off the wall when we bought the house. (We love a home with potential, lol!). He put in the black laminate counter tops and composite sink, even though plumbing is not his favorite home improvement project!
He made the door fronts of the cabinets using beadboard and put in the beadboard backsplash,....my job was to prime,paint and seal all of these. We left the top cupboard to the right of the window open and added the beadboard to the back of that. One of the bottom cabinets holds the microwave, and below it is a drawer bin. Someday, when I have time, I'd like to paint something decorative and hang it above the stove.....although, I do love the white.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm hoping ours is calm without any trips to the ER, like last weekend!

Suzanne, Good things come in small packages! The kitchen looks great and to think it was all team work that brought it to life.Once that cold Midwest winter sets in, I bet it will be the heart of the home.Come spring you'll have had plenty of time to decide on the wall behind the stove. Some trompel'oeil perhaps? Susan
