A Shocking Kitchen Makeover

Hold onto your hats: This was our old 1960s kitchen--and the ovens were likely from the same era. 

I know...you probably want to shield your eyes. It was pretty awful.

Can you say old and scary... I'm not a fan of tile countertops. And certainly not yellow ones.

Demolition was a good day for my old kitchen. Great therapy.

I didn't mind it when we lived with our kitchen and house like this. When the ceilings came out I felt like I could finally breathe. This is what open and airy looks like.

And then, the new walls. The stone goes up. The circle window is actually from the front of our old house. I didn't have the heart to throw it away.
The pantry gets built.

The new kitchen with our new open floor plan. I took this shot just before we left on vacation. I like to come home to a neat house. So while it was clean, I snapped this pic. I'll show more close up shots of the kitchen soon.
