New Look

The Cottage kitchen is sportin' a new look!
A few weeks ago Mr. D informed me that we had saved up enough dough-ray-me (thanks to Dave Ramsey and our Total Money Makeover!) to buy a new refrigerator!  
Then he took me on a date to pick one out!





Mr. D bought me a stove for my birthday!


 So, you know how one thing leads to another....well, that's what happened at The Cottage....


First, I re-painted the upper cabinets.  Then I glazed them. Then I took the doors off the cabinets over the microwave.  Mr. D is going to make a shelf for that cabinet soon.
  
and then he will add the brackets to the left upper cupboards,
after I buy them.  and paint them. :)

I took this oldie but goodie to the garage

and gave her a make-over


I'm looking for new jewelry hardware to finish the look.

The kitchen has evolved quite a bit in the nearly 8 years we've lived at The Cottage.

When we moved into The Cottage the kitchen looked like this:

years later, the kitchen looked like this


Now the Cottage kitchen looks like this:


I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've had matching appliances in my kitchen since we lived in our very first apartment.  In 1981.

  3. Yay for new appliances! I remember reading about how many times you had fixed the old fridge. And, seriously, it cannot be almost 8 years that you've lived there!

  5. I was thinking the same thing! You've really been in that house for 8 years? Since before Jack was born??? crazy.

    and I am so insanely envious of your new appliances and love the "after" picture. love it all. and am also envious of your ability to just do it (painting cabinets re-doing antiques etc) can you please come and live at my house for a while?
