I missed a lot this weekend and obviously missed posting "Sidewalk Sunday"
I decided to go ahead and keep you in suspense until next Sunday.
(I know, I'm mean)
That being said, I didn't want to go an entire week without posting something for you to read so...
I thought I'd give you another peek into Treasures past.
Last time we left off in the Living room. Now let's head to the Kitchen. We don't have far to go, basically you just need to turn around while standing in the Living room.
Silly me, I should have said "Let's take a look at the Kitchen and Dinning room."
I know, it's very small, but I loved it! This was my very first kitchen remodel!
Wanna guess how much it cost?
Let me start buy saying that there where 10 upper, 7 base cabinets and two pantry cabinets. ALL wood.
I also had granite counter tops installed and the tile backsplash with the decortive tiles.
Let's take a little better look around...
This area was empty before. It is where the kitchen table would normally have sat.
As soon as we started the remodel I had the wall between the kitchen and living room torn down which left this space available for more cabinets and much needed counter space.
Next up is the main wall of the kitchen,
This is the view from the living room area. This home was built in 1952 and the kitchen hadn't been updated. When I redesigned it I took out drawer space inorder to fit in a dishwasher.
It was a trade I was willing to make!
Now when i'm asking you to guess how much this kitchen cost, I'm not including appliances.
Just the demo, install, cabinets, granite and tile.
Go ahead take your best guess!!
Oh one last thing,
you know how in the beginning of this post I said I should have said let's take a look at the kitchen and dinning room?
Well here's what I really should have said...
"Let's take a look at the kitchen, dinning room and laundry room/pantry"
Yep! Just when you thought we couldn't pack anymore into one teeny tiny space...
Here's my "laundry room"
There used to be a door here giving you access to the hall. It seemed really silly to me because if you wanted to walk all the way around instead of using this door, I think it might have added 10 extra steps to your trip. getting rid of the door left us plenty of room to install a pantry.
Don't ask what my reason was for taking photos at the angles I did, I have NO idea why??
