Kitchen Before and After

Painted Knotty Pine back in the 1990's ... Started Renovating Kitchen in 2009 and have every year since :)
Finally in 2012, we're here. I just added several pics from various stages
Granite measurement ... I SHOULD have removed my countertop for a more accurate measurement.
Granite Installation. I felt so sorry for the installers. Measurements were off and Lawd it was a job adjusting here, there and everywhere!
Installed Beadboard Backsplash
Caulking and White Paint is a Girl's Best Friend (in my Marilyn Monroe voice)
Eat-in Area Before
Removed installed Wall from 2009's renovation (My home is a 1961 Mid-Century Ranch ... sounds Fancy teehee) This was the Storage Room area of the Carport :) Recent Renovation changed it to front half laundry area facing kitchen
the other side is the Masterbath for the Masterbedroom ... Turned the former Den into the Masterbedroom ... before the Den, it was a Carport.
Eat-in Area after opening part of Storage area - AGAIN
Rearranged opening on this end.
China Cabinet is blocking former backdoor
After removing the wallpaper, I painted the walls #Clueless
2012 August after granite installation, laminate floors, painting the walls Glidden's Lemon Ice and so forth and so on
Went back to stain for a couple of months in 2011
I painted the top white in the latter part of 2011

One of many changes in color and arrangements in 2010
Wallpaper, Wallpaper, Wallpaper ... mid 1990's (pic taken in 2009)
Installed wall between Livingroom and Kitchen area . I'm the ONLY one Adding a Wall these days?
Closed doorwar to Hall ... utilized "deadspace" in Hall for Fridge :)
New laminate floor Nov 2011
2012 Pic from Bedroom looking toward Kitchen. I saw Beadboard installed on the side of a Fridge on a blog somewhere ... having trouble back tracking. Oh well, I'm think I'm going to just take a stab at installing it :)
