Kitchen photos

The Our House section of our blog has had only before pictures- so in an attempt to update with some current photos I took some quick photos of our kitchen this morning.  It was a good excuse to give it a good ol’ clean.

We’d call it 95% done. There are still some minor things I’d like to get done:

-make a window curtain
-paint/replace kickboards under cabinets
-make a pull-out trash/recycling compartment
-make a small shelf to the right of the fridge for cereal and bags
– finish up some trim around the island and cabinets

So far we’ve finished the drywall seams which were just raw seams since we bought the house, installed recessed lights, and added some insulation where it was lacking (no wonder its so cold up there!).  Here’s a picture of Dan doing some insulation/ electrical work. Thank goodness he’s so skinny!upstairs

Although anything we do up there will be an improvement, we’ve got big plans!  Here’s some of my inspiration:
