So, I just renovated my kitchen. Actually, "renovated" doesn't do it justice. I just took my kitchen down to the studs and put it back together again. And by "I" clearly I mean "the many men I paid to do this on my behalf." Let's move on.
My kitchen was just extensively renovated, after a two-year planning period which consisted mostly of sitting on the couch with my husband talking about what I pain it was going to be to have no access to the first floor of our house for however many weeks, which it was, but it was so worth it. Ready for the big reveal? First, here is the old kitchen that came with the house (it gets bigger if you click it).
And then here are all the things we put in instead:
In case you aren't a kitchen savant, those are (left to right) our glass tile backsplash, Zodiac countertop, lampshades, cabinets, and floor tiles.
And here's where we ended up:
We think it was an improvement.
