A Kitchen To Dream In


And after:

Our kitchen is 95 per cent done. I know those of you who have had work done on your house know that that extra 5 per cent could take forever to finally be completed, but our guys swear that all loose ends will be tied by the end of the week. Either way, what you see here is more or less the final product. So, what do you think?

I love it. I know that the colour scheme, particularly the counter, is a bit of a bold choice, and believe me, it did keep Aaron up some nights. But I do love the look of it, and I also really love the functionality. I haven't quite figured out how to organize all the cupboards yet, but I have done a fair amount of cooking and cleaning and the set-up works amazingly. And I have to say, not only do I love having a dishwasher, but who knew how much fun a garborator could be? Between that and our city's new curbside recycling program (finally!), we barely have any landfill garbage.

We also got a tonne of work done on our living room, and in some ways that has made a bigger difference in our house, but it's far less dramatic, so I'm not going to post photos. It has been a really difficult three months and we're going to be in debt for the rest of our living days, but so far, I think it's worth it.

Oh it's so beautiful!! I love those cabinets and the color of the counters and tiles. Loooove! Congratulations!

Our kitchen was re-done almost 2 years ago...and that 5% is still not done. But that's cause we're lazy. Good luck with yours!

I am so envious! It's gorgeous, and I love the counters. I think you would have a hard time getting me out of that kitchen.
