Better late than never:

Some time ago when I posted pictures of our Living room remodel I meant to follow it up with pictures of the kitchen remodel that took place around that time. It's been long enough now that I can't even remember for sure if the kitchen came before the living room, or if the living room was first.

Now that I think about it, the living room was done first because I was a little anal about worker-types draggin crap through the front door to get to the kitchen.

Anyway - I wish I had enough brains on those few days to take some "before" pictures, but I've looked through my iPhoto book and can't see any "kitchen-befores." Nevertheless, here are some "kitchen-afters" for you. He said, as if anyone cared.

So instead of fretting over the fact that there are no before pictures for the kitchen, let me offer you a nice full set of before-during-after photos from the recent bedroom re-do. But first let me explain something. In any normal family, the bedroom you are about to see would be the master bedroom. But not us. The Bedroom Normally Inhabited By The Masters is a bedroom inhabited by two boys. As a result, you will see two beds. Let me make it clear, that in the REAL master bedroom there are NOT two beds.

So, without further ado, then, here are some pictures for you to ogle.

Here are some "before" pictures. Since the room has been inhabited by aliensImeanboys, the walls here were ROTTEN. This is the last room in the house to have received attention, and now I remember WHY. Note the very lovely country fan and the Smurf sheets. Nice touch, I think.

So that's the before... here are some "during" - showing how bad the walls really were:

And here are some from the end of the weekend, when everything was finished.

Looks great! And it looks like Charlie loves it too. What more could you want? Now, do we have to sleep in the two bed room or can we still have our suite when we come a callin'?

I love the remodels. You have the best taste.

What wood are your cabinets made out of? Also, do you like your dishwasher ? Mine just died today and I have to buy one. Yours looks lovely, so I thought I'd ask what model it is.

Wow! Ilove the Kitchen and the boy's room looks perfect for them.

Great work!

Loralee: The DW is great... it's a bosch I believe. I can't remember what model. ThatOneWife bought it. Its controls are all on the top side of the door, so it remains very clean on the outside. It's quiet and we haven't had a moment of trouble with it. One thing though, the handle has become loose and I need to figure out a way to loosen the front so I can get at the bolts/nuts that hold the handle on. Other than that, it's been great.

4: The "drunk tank" remains available.

Thanks for the comments!

Oops... forgot - Loralee, the cabs are maple, with either a clear stain or a "honey" stain... can't remember which... I'm pretty useless huh!?!


If I recall correctly, the honey stain is a bit more "golden" than the natural stain. We like the clear, cleaner look and we went with the most natural stain color.

Oh, that's it, I cannot compete with what you've done and my redone "rubber ducky" themed bathroom.

Nice digs! And great work with the bedroom.

Are you kidding me...that is the best looking kitchen I've seen in a while. I don't cook, but that kitchen would inspire me.

All, thank you so much for the VERY kind comments!! Some of you (apparently) are new, so welcome here, I hope you'll come back and read more.

I promise it will only take a few posts before you're utterly offended and vow to never come back.

Geez, I crack me up.

And Choate - the DW is a Jenn-Air. My bad.
