Kitchen coming together

I should have bought stock in Ikea and Home Depot. Years ago.

Instead I just get to increase the wealth of their existing stockholders, but it still seems like a good deal when the results turn out this nice: (ignore Karen showing you how well she brushed her teeth)

Two smaller things of note in the bigger picture: in the very back is a new steel wire shelf with a wood top, a perfect space for our toaster, coffee maker, and various stuff underneath. This lets us clean up our main counter space for day-to-day use. Also, left of the sink (detail at left) is a new separate filtered water faucet! It’s so great to have a built-in faucet finally instead of the stupid ones that attach to the end of the existing faucet and always have a bad seal anyway. Total. Crap. This one feels nice and looks nice – it even matches the faucet I put in a while back!

So… I think that about wraps up the kitchen! (for now)

    For those of you who may not know or remember what our kitchen looked like before, the biggest changes are the hanging produce basket in the corner and the freakin awesome shelves and organizer thingies above the stove. Nate didn’t actually talk about them in his post, and I just wanted to make sure everybody realized what was all going on in that picture.

    You guys are going great guns on fixing up your place. I love it! In fact, I’m thinking we need to hire you out for a bit. We just did some less glamorous repairs – a new hot water heater today. And I ordered and just put in a replacement curb-mounted skylight- over the bedroom where Steve slept. A branch came down and went right through the old one.

    The shelves look great! I can see that you must have gained a lot of counter space. Looks like the kitchen utentsils and herbs got a new home, among other things. I remember your mentioning wanting shelves there, but they look even better than I imagined they would. Good job!!
