After six months in our new apartment I can finally say the kitchen is
finished done enough to show people! There are still a few more finishing touches, but they are the less noticeable things and may take another six months to get done!
I had some in-process shots of putting the kitchen together but somehow they got lost. :( But at least I have some before pictures!
Before Left Side
Why yes, that is a bare concrete wall. With 12 outlets. Yes, 12.
Before Window Side
Look at that sink! You can't imagine how much trouble that thing was... but SO worth it!
First up we had one friend (Tony) who did all the tile work. Isn't it beautiful?!
I wanted those tiny tiles for the whole wall, but that was going to be prohibitively expensive, so another friend (Gudi) suggested doing the mosaic behind the stove and then the strips across the rest of the wall. I LOVE IT!!!
In a kitchen this small every tiny square inch of space is important. That's why I was ECSTATIC when Ikea came out with these toe kick drawers!
We got this kitchen island in the last apartment for extra storage.
It's great for eating, prepping food, homework...
And the one in the dining room too.
One last project - finally hung my quilt rack. It never made it on the wall in the last apartment, so I'm thrilled to have it up again!
Happy New Year everyone!!
