This is the “before”, or how the kitchen looked when we bought the house.
The biggest change from the pictures, was with the countertops. After it became evident that we would need more reliable/permanent tops, we explored our options and what we could afford.
I left everything the same on my open shelves the hubs built, because I still love the arrangement.
I added a couple of houseplants – which is a first for me. Many of my readers had recommended I add them to my spaces. I am pleased to announce that I have managed to keep them alive for 4 weeks.
