As a refresher, here are the before shots.
|Low ceiling, old cabinets, wood grain laminate counters|
|Mismatched appliances, microwave taking up valuable counterspace, treasure chest looking range hood|
|Broken blinds, window at counter level (and slopes a little) so water run into it--plus doesn't open well, duct tape in the bottom corner trying to keep the steel wool stuffed in there to keep mice out (didn't work)|
|Old sliding glass door, won't open well because of dirt or swelling in the heat, lots of junk stuffed under the counter|
|Badly stained carpet, and all those cords!|
|Old heater (fan stopped blowing and dangerously heated the wall), old door to garage and casing (chewed by previous renters' dogs)|
|Custom cabinets (painted white with brown glaze), granite counter (tropical brown), regular ceiling and recessed lights|
|Stainless steel appliances, over the range microwave|
|New sink and faucet, window plus granite windowsill, pendant light over sink, blinds, and look--no mouse hole! (the floor is all patched up underneath too)|
|Backsplash--nice neutral tile, but I really love the accent tiles we picked out|
|New sliding door, extra cabinet for storage, and look--6 new junk drawers! :) Still need some curtains|
|Tile floor extended into family room, cords tamed slightly (I still have plans to cover them up more)|
So, what do you think? What's your favorite change?
