2 posts in one day, crazy! Actually, I realized that next week we'd probably be really busy with last minute packing and I wanted to try to get all of our current "before" pictures posted before then. So now on to the kitchen!

cabinet in hall outside kitchen

wall toaster!

In the hallway right outside the kitchen there is a great built-in cabinet. Some of the shelves are covered with contact paper, and some are just covered with placemats. Depending on how the paper comes off, we might have to paint the interior, but the exterior is in great shape and it still has all the original hardware. I've very excited to finally have a place to put the wedding china! The kitchen itself needs a lot of help, but it does have a dishwasher and a newer stove. For now, we're thinking we'll just repair a few of the cabinets and paint them white, and put on some new knobs. We'll take out the trash compactor and probably just make some kind of shelf to put in its place. On the other side of the kitchen, we're going to take out that weird table thing, and the wall toaster. That's right, a toaster that is in the wall... I've never even heard of such a thing... Maybe we'll sell it on ebay :-) We'll also update the light, the current one is made of plastic and has fruit on it. We might have to leave the carpet in the kitchen for now, we're going to try to see what's underneath, but I'm guessing that it's just some type of old laminate. As for the bathroom (it's the door beside the fridge), we're just going to do some painting for now. Eventually, we'd like to put in new flooring in the kitchen into the bathroom, put in brand new cabinets, countertops, appliances, bath vanity, lighting, etc. We might even open the wall up between the kitchen and the dining room. But that is all part of a much bigger project that won't be happening anytime soon. I think just paint and some new inexpensive fixtures and hardware will do a lot to make it look brighter and more livable. Oh, did I mention that the ceiling is also wallpapered?
