And the kitchen remodel begins...

I have another blog, a home blog, but I just can't keep up with both, so I'm going to sort of combine the two.

Just to give you an idea of where we started and where we've gone, this is what the house looked like when we bought it, but after we riped out these huge, hideous bushes in the yard. And it was pink!

And this is the house after we painted it tan, added black shutterse, painted the door black and the new landscaping began to grow in. Oh, and my husband and my in-laws painted the entire house themselves. I had to work, but I helped a little...

After




When we moved into our house, we knew it needed some updating and we are finally ready to start the kitchen. Last weekend James changed out the light fixture. The new one is far and away so much better. The lighting is better (we used sunshine bulbs) and it is just more appealing.

Next weekend the granite will be installed (woohoo!) and then we will paint the cabinets. Right now James is taking off the old counter tops, taking off the trim and the molding and making sure everything will be supported properly. Few, it's going to be a busy few weeks, but at least it will all be done by Thanksgiving.

Here are some before pictures of the kitchen.

I am so grateful that I have a handy, hard working husband. I never thought that I would be able to do any household fixing up stuff, but now I can, thanks to him! What he doesn't know, he teaches himself.

I will post the kitchen as we go!
