House Tour: Kitchen

Our kitchen re-do quickly became the, "well, we're already doing this, so what's the big deal if we do this too?" room. I'm happy with how it turned out though. Here's the rundown:

1. New appliances
2. Replace cabinet door
3. Take old pantry out of garage, cut down to create cabinet and more counter space by fridge {Thank heavens for handy uncles!}
4. New countertops
5. New undermount sink
6. New faucet
7. New garbage disposal - because we couldn't detach the other one from the old sink {too much silicone gel used in the previous do-it-yourself project.}
8. Replace all electrical outlets and switches
9. Add outlet by the new cabinet/counter by fridge
10. New paint!
11. Remove breadbox
12. Take down shelf-y thing by the window and above the door to the kitchen {I don't think you can see either of those}.
13. Clean and decorate a little :)
14. Sand and re-finish floor
15. Shorten cabinets above microwave by about 6" so that the unit is flush with the cabinets and not hanging below! {Again, thanks to a handy uncle!}

Still on my to-do list: replace cabinet hardware, but that can wait for now. Ta-Da!!!! :)

What cabinet door did you replace?

The narrow one to the left of the stove. See how it was just open before?
