We are hoping, sometime in the next decade, to move to a new house. This house has been good to us. It's our first one, you know. But we're feeling the crunch of four people in a two-bedroom house. To prepare for the inevitable, we (meaning, mostly Greg) have gradually been doing projects to prepare for re-selling. The most recent project was the kitchen. This was a project I could finally help with. I'm the painter in this family. Greg does everything else (doors, floors, demo, installation...).
(I'm posting these for Janelle's benefit!)
Light fixture and drop ceiling, before
New appliances. Our realtor recommended stainless, so we obeyed. It would not have been my first choice, but we're really happy with them. There's quite a story to tell about the appliances. I did a lot of research and got us a really good deal. And got initiated on Craigslist with our old stove. There's the painted bead board backsplash. So much better!
Next project....the basement (I think). I hope painting isn't required.
