{the unkitchen} Kitchen Remodel Phase 1 – In The Beginning

This is what the kitchen formerly known as my kitchen currently looks like.

2 days ago I had a kitchen that looked like this:

It was OK, but it had some flaws. Like…

Not nearly enough storage. Dishes drying have nowhere to get put away!

Hardwood scratched beyond belief… abutted by the ugliest peach tile you ever did see.

A big ugly washer and dryer and no room for the recycling. Constantly shuffling things to get the laundry in and out!

Only 1 cabinet to store all the food. No Costco for me!

But, there were some good things too. Like,

the panoramic view of San Francisco.

The way it flows nicely into the living room.

And of course, all of the wonderful meals, parties, and other fun times shared with friends in family in this kitchen!

So what’s happening now?

Well, you already saw what the kitchen looks like… but the rest of the house is a mess too.

The guest room’s only guests are the living room furniture.

In the office, the Transformers are forced to commingle with the fine crystal!

And the current “kitchen” setup?

(I use the term loosely as you’ll see…)

Please invite us over for dinner.

    Oooh, you are so very lucky! You must be so excited despite the mess. I can’t wait to see how it turns out for you.

    Must be in the air! We started an entire apartment do-over last weekend. What started as only painting has now turned into replacing kitchen cabinets, adding an office space and re-doing a laundry room, all in a tiny apartment that we rent!!! I have a feeling our kitchen is a wee bit smaller as yours but deals with the same pains. We do have you beat on the cupboard space …. we have one for food & dishes!!!! Challenging!

      TOTALLY. Everyone on our block is doing something to their house right now, it seems. And yes… we started as a “keep the same footprint but change the cabinets” to “gut the whole thing and start over” 🙂
