Kitchen Renovation Part I

This renovation has taken forever. Well, not really, more like a month, Which is forever when it’s your kitchen people. And it’s still not done. I’m so ready for the contractors and painter to be out of my house!

So here is to introducing you to our kitchen/breakfast nook/sunken sitting room. Sunshine threw up in there when we first bought the house. No joke. The yellow was blinding. (like that?) Unfortunately, you aren't going to get the full yellow effect since we didn't take pictures until part of the walls were already painted in the nook/sunken sitting room.

Hadleigh is somewhere in 4 of these pictures - let's play "Where's Hadleigh" :)

Looking from foyer

Sunken Sitting Room -->

<-- Nook

Kitchen from Nook -->
Check out those tile floors, and the island lights, and the light by the back door, oh, and the light above the sink! lots to change!

<-- Kitchen from Stove
We don't use the "desk" portion of the kitchen, so here is where we are enclosing the microwave to make it look like it's built-in.  All that free space under the drawers, will soon be a pull out trash & recycling

Kitchen from sink -->
Hey top of Hadleigh's head!
Our built-in hutch which we have no clue how we are going to fill and decorate!
