Kitchen Reno - Before




suffice it to say - this kitchen was a mess.


It was completed gutted.




And then they started from scratch.


What did they do in the mean time?
They camped out -- What else could they do?
I'm sure this is not the life that she imagined.



 Sherri wanted lots of drawers for items.
I don't know about you but I love the big deep drawers
that I have in my kitchen at home.  I just wish I
had this many of them.

Can you see the light?
We bought this island in Canton Texas.
The front that you are looking at in this picture
is an old door.  The back of it - that I didn't get a picture of -
is long shelves.  She plans to put baskets on the shelves
and it will also be a place to put the extra large bowls
that she has accumulated.  I just know it will be
fabulous once it it finished.



More to come and hopefully it won't be long.
They are already cooking in the kitchen when they need to.
There is no water yet because the water softener is broken and
the water is almost pure rust without it.  Jason has been working
a lot with the latest storms that have hit Louisiana so the work
is not progressing as they would like but you gotta work right?

Following you from you link you sent me in the Etsy quote request for design. You give me hope lol. Our kitchen in our house is OLD. Built in 1940. I am so afraid to try tearing everything out and starting over ourselves, but you make it look easy lol. Love the island..where would you find something like that?
