As my husband and I lived through our recent kitchen renovation, so many of you asked for photos. I have complied with your requests.
We moved to this home a little over 1 1/2 years ago. After months of preparing for the sale of the home we had lived in for over 18 years, 7 months on the market and then a major move, we weren't ready to do much of anything to our new home other than live in it for awhile. While we had done a major renovation to the kitchen of our old home (tore everything out and started from scratch), we were less ambitious this time and felt we were working with good "bones" in this kitchen. We already had very nice cabinets, but they needed a facelift. We had a great tile floor and we had decent appliances. We hired someone to sand down the cabinets, stain and finish them and add hardware. We selected a new sink, faucet and granite countertops and I painted the kitchen and adjoining family room. The whole process took about two weeks.
