The kitchen

We have some minor details to finish up in the kitchen, but it is fairly complete!  So, I figure it's time for before and after photos.  It's a beautiful day, the kitchen is mostly clean, and I'm trying to act like I'm on vacation.  That is proving to be difficult.  Anywho, without further adieu...

Before: looking into a yellow and peachy coral kitchen with lots of potential...


After: hardwood floors, black cabinets, granite countertops, and green walls!



 Before: Walking in the main entrance for the homeowner (through the courtyard) - a huge but slightly depressing view...


After: A (hopefully) warmer welcome with shiny stainless steel reflecting some of that beautiful sunshine!


Before: Looking in and seeing chunky handles from the great room...


After: A cleaner welcome (handles yet to be actually attached *nudge nudge hubby*) with some fun stuff displayed now!


And one more old view, from the door looking into the breakfast nook...


And a few last views, since my original pics failed to catch all of what would become our hard work!




The to-do list for the kitchen now includes sealing the backsplash and getting grout to go down around the counter, adding the few last knobs, and making window treatments... but not today =)
