The kitchen preparation continues...

This is our last full day with our old kitchen (12-4-13). As we're getting it ripped out tomorrow, here is what it looks like now:
This is the classic "before" picture. Parting with this will not be hard.

This stove is original to the house (1968). We're pretty sure it's not grounded.
The desk next to the fridge has a leg that likes to lay on the floor. A lot. Good thing it can stand without it.

This border rings our kitchen and reminds us of the Bonnie Hills of Wonderland. The soffit will be ripped out.

Every ceiling light should come with a simulated wood grain sticker.

This sink leaks a lot out of the stem. I am glad I never fixed it. Sort of.

This is our dining room/temporary kitchen.

All the food from the pantry is in the boxes to the left.
All in all even though it has been a sub-optimal kitchen it has been, thanks be to God, a kitchen. We will not be too sad to see it all go the way of the Dodo, but we will remember how God decided to give us what we needed these 10 years. He is good all the time and I hope that we managed the space that He gave us well.


  1. Looking forward to the transformation.

    1. Thanks, Martha. Nan is looking forward to cooking and especially baking with her new range.

  2. YAY! So glad you are blogging this. I know you have waited a long time for this kitchen. :)

    1. Thanks, Kris. It seems like whenever we are done with something we say, "We should have done before and after pictures." Well, this is the one time when we will not have to say that. :)

  3. Dude, can I have the old cabinets? It shouldn't cost much to ship them out to Wisconsin, right? At least send me the simulated wood grain light fixture, okay? We're so happy for your family. May it go super-smoothly!

    1. Yeah..not too sure about shipping unless it is by sled dog with all the snow you guys will be getting soon. :) We're praying it goes smoothly too, but He knows what we need. I just hope we don't need a rough road.
