The Kitchen Update: How to Drag Your Kitchen Out of the 80's/90's and Into the 50's

Hello Everyone,
First of all I am sorry for taking so long in updating this blog. I know I say that every time but I think it will be worth the wait. We finished the kitchen several months ago but I have just now found the time and inclination to take some images to share with you all.
The first group of images will be the dreaded 'Before' pictures. Most of these pictures were taken from the MLS listing when we were buying the house so that isn't our furniture. They are followed by the beloved [hopefully!] 'After' pictures.
Another note is that the floor couldn't have been completed without our pal Joe T. who flew in for a visit and took point on the project. 15 hours later, hands covered with stickiness, and yours truly exhausted and unable to see straight we are very pleased as we hope you will be as well.
And now..... Enjoy.




 I think the pictures are fairly accurate. I took these images at night and the colors are a little darker than when the sunlight washes them out a little. The light here is very 'white' and not golden yellow which produces the best natural colors. The cabinets are what we call a '57 Chevy color. I think this represents a vast improvement all around.
