Sorry, no before pics. Just use your imagination. We've been here 14 years now.
I moved off counter :
large oval crockpot
Dish rack w/display of cups covered with recipes & cookbooks.
Moved toaster over by microwave.
Moved bread box across to the other side of the stove.
Silverware drawers wear out & squeak so I keep mine in cups & holders.
Moved bread maker & coffee pot over to corner.
Put some kosher salt in a bowl next to stove.
Need to replace the ugly florescent lights.
Unplug smaller appliances.
Thankful I'm not the only one who cleans the kitchen !
Someday soon we will start remodeling kitchen.
Need to lighten up cabinets.
Want a new stove.
Need to decide to keep the serviceable butcherblock countertop & backsplash.
Do I replace both or just one ?
New flooring will extend out kitchen into dining area & back into utility/bath area.
Popcorn ceilings will be scrapped off & textured then painted.
