You may have noticed that I haven't been posting recipes quite as often as I have in the past.
Well I have a good reason.
I didn't have a kitchen for 6 weeks.
6 weeks people!
It's kind of hard to bake goodies with no oven :)
Well I'm back in action now, so I thought you might like to see some before and after pics.
I'll warn you - this may take awhile.
Let's get started.
My husband and I talked about it a lot.
He said lets go for it.
I was scared.
How would we make all of those decisions? Appliances, faucets, tile.
Who could design the kitchen we thought we wanted?
How would we find a good electrician, plumber, tile installer, painter, etc.?
Scott Miller Construction to the rescue!
My cousin Scott is a builder/contractor.
He and his wife Mendy said they would help us from beginning to end.
And help us they did!
They went above and beyond to get us our dream kitchen!
Here is what our kitchen looked like before the remodel.
Mismatched appliances, linoleum flooring, brass cabinet pulls and Formica counter tops.
It all needed to go!
My beloved pink mixer got kind of lost with all of the clutter around.
Whoops - forgot to move my shoes before I took this photo :)
Scott and Mendy set us up with a kitchen designer.
Leslie from Classic Kitchen & Bath.
We told Leslie what we thought we wanted, how much we could spend and she took it from there.
She came up with a beautiful plan, stayed within our budget and was such a joy to work with!
If you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen or bath, you should definitely give Classic Kitchens a call!!
Scott lined everyone up and told us when he would be at our house for demo day.
All of my family came over and helped us tear out our old kitchen.
That's my husband saying "there's no going back now"!
He's quite the worker.
Goodbye old cabinets.
That's me tearing out 20 year old linoleum tile - yuck!
So for 6 weeks after demo day we grilled, cooked on a hot plate and ate out ALOT.
That part wasn't so bad :)
I also had to go to a laundry mat since we semi-remodeled our laundry room too.
That part kind of sucked.
But it was all worth it because here is what our kitchen looks like now!!
It's so pretty!
Stainless Steel Whirlpool appliances, beautiful white cabinets, granite counter tops, subway tile back splash, new lighting and ceramic tile flooring.
We love it!
I've got two ovens now!!!
Double the cupcake fun :)
Lots of pantry and storage space.
My pink mixer is so happy in her new home!
We are so grateful for the help of Scott and Mendy of Scott Miller Construction, Leslie from
Classic Kitchen and Bath and my family for helping us with this huge project!
Hope you enjoyed taking a glimpse of our remodel project.
Now I'm ready to do some baking!
Happy Weekend sweet readers!
