Ye Olde Kitchen

The before...

The before...

Ok-so on film this does not look too bad...These are the before pictures of my kitchen. But as a woman that cooks nearly every night, and loves to entertain, this kitchen has remained basically unchanged since we moved in almost 11 years ago.  My beefs?  The fact that to find a pot in a corner cabinet required spelunking gear, and that each white tile was a magnet for all things dark, and all the black tiles..you get the picture.  That combined with no pullouts for pots and pans, no ventilation and spotty lighting made for a charming but not terribly efficient kitchen.  My goal, to stay within the same footprint yet make it more useful, productive and above all beautiful.  Let the games begin!  I know my mom would have loved to go over all the details with me, and I think of her with each decision I make.
