One of the first jobs when we moved in was replacing the kitchen ... it was original to the house (so around 1984), and even though the last owners had painted it, it was still pretty daggy! Also, Anita is the cook in our household, and she's 6'2", so wanted a kitchen that was raised a bit higher than the average.
Here are a few 'before' photos - note the gorgeous hessian-look benchtops and cork facings :O
And here's the start of demolition:
Old kitchen's gone!
New cabinets started going in very quickly:
And this was at the end of day 1 - Greg worked without any break from 8.00am right through to 6.15pm!
Day 2 - bench tops have started being installed ...
And the finished kitchen (except for splashback) - more pics when the splashback has been done (we haven't decided what we want yet) ... hopefully you get the idea ;)
Ha, you can just see Frankie in the foreground :) Next step is to get the dryer mounted on the wall, and some shelving installed. But that's another blog update ...
