I'm totally loving my "new" kitchen! We tore out the lovely 60's everything....harvest gold metal cabinets, wallpaper, vinyl flooring....and redid it, the laundry room and powder room. We picked out the cabinets from a nearby cabinet showroom and hubby did the installation himself.

We sure worked hard on this kitchen, but it seemed to come together almost effortlessly..... ; )
