The last 3 days have been busy. We needed to change the door hardware/locks, start measuring for furniture, deal with utilities. You know, all the little things that go along with a change of residence. Oh, I forgot to mention conducting the guided tours for my friends! :)
I have taken quite a few "before" photos, and will start posting them for you all to see.
Here's my new kitchen. It's small but really very efficient. The kitchen I am leaving behind is too big. Yes, you heard me, TOO BIG. It is a killer, to work in because the work triangle is non-existent. I am going to love the new one!
The credenza I showed you will be placed on the wall you can't seen on the other side of the pantry cabinet.
I have a small, square library table with two pull-out extensions that will just fit this space. Eventually, I'd like to put banquette seating in the corner under both windows.

I need to decide whether I am going to paint the cabinetry white, and I am leaning that direction. If I do, we'll go stainless steel. If I leave the oak, I'll use white.
I love those little glass block windows over the counter. This is the east wall of the house, and the morning sun shine through!
Haven't decided about the counters. I can live with white tile. The advantage to changing is that the double sink is really too small. Not a decision I have to make right away.
Planning to put slide-outs in the pantry cupboard. A couple of the lower cabinets have slide out already.
Just wanted to show the inside-out view of the front garden. You also get a close-up of those "interesting" drapes.
