After living in our little Ranch Style home for almost 30 years ... it was certainly time to remodel the kitchen. I've thought of doing this over and over ... and just could never work up the energy to clean it out ... rip it out ... and get on with the project. The time finally came.
Our house was built in 1959 and the kitchen cabinets had been replaced when we moved in ... but we always thought they were probably used cabinets because they didn't really fit the room. The little tiny kitchen was originally designed, as were many from the era, to house the washing machine ... but not dryer. A sun porch had been added to the back of the house and the washer and dryer hookups had been moved to that room. So, needless to say ... everything was kind of a hodge podge. There were things I liked about the kitchen ... a vaulted ceiling and room on top of the wall cabinets to display my stuff ... white ceramic tile on the back splash walls ... It was small enough to be handy ... and I had learned how to do some serious cooking for big crowds in the small space!
Here it is ... the BEFORE ... what I had grown to feel was pretty ugly ... especially after I took all my stuff off the counter tops and off the top of the wall cabinets!
