The "Before the Kitchen Makeover" Pics

I decided it was time to share my current kitchen/family room. The makeover starts on Friday, when the existing floor, and appliances will be removed. The only items which will be staying are the navy sofas.

Ever since we bought this house 10 years ago, I have been planning the replacement in my mind. It is north facing, and very dark. These photos may not demonstrate that, but believe me, IT IS dark.

You may also note the broken oven door, the missing handles, wonky drawers and a fridge door that is literally in it’s last hinges.

Today we took delivery of the new fridge/freezer and range cooker…..

ready for a peek?…….


………..they are still in their boxes!

All will be revealed with the makeover, but it did not stop by son examining the goods.

My son was so excited when the delivery men arrived in their lorry. When he saw this picture on the side of the box….

he asked – are we getting lots of egg cups?!!

His final request to the delivery men was to please not block his view of the television, and as you can see, they obliged!

To see how the kitchen makeover turns out – stick with me.

Finally, here are my most recent Project 365 weekly reviews.
