I don't have anything scrappy to share but I do have some before and after pictures of our kitchen remodel :)
Here are the before pics:
This here was the 'problem' counter top. We eliminated that chunk that stuck out and boy did it make a difference! Chuck and I can both stand in the kitchen with the fridge door open now :)
This is the beast of the dishwasher we've been using. It's a portable and our friend let us use it for about 3 years. I'm so thankful we had it!! Especially with 2 kids! Even though not the prettiest, it really made our lives so much easier and I'm so thankful for that! I'll never forget the day we got it....We couldn't afford a new dishwasher at the time only because we knew it would turn into so much more: countertops, sink, etc. It all adds up.
Here are the after pics:
We added a top cupboard to the right.
To the left of these pictures is where the 'beast' was. We added 3 cupboards to that spot- 2 on the bottom and 1 on top and of course added a counter top. It's a lot more practical for us. I didn't take a picture of it because that is where the tools, etc are sitting right now.
I love our new kitchen space and don't feel so crowded in it. Next up is painting- I've picked a color called 'potato skin' - it's neutral brown. We are painting the kitchen/dining room and living room this color. After this project though I'm ready for a little break so painting probably won't start for a couple of weeks.
Tonight while the new dishwasher was running, I didn't have to turn up the TV 10 notches! lol It's so quiet!
We budgeted $2,500 for this mini remodel and actually came out less than that....$2,100.
Stop back tomorrow to see a new kitchen decor item I created. I was inspired by someone that has such beautiful work and that "awww's " me every time I see her creations!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night~
