Proudly Presenting

the "almost completed" Cheap family kitchen. I say "almost" because obviously there are not any knobs on the cabinets and nothing hanging on the walls. I have to decide what drawer pulls I want and then I need to redecorate. I also hope to have new laminent flooring and possibly new counter tops by this time next year, but for now I am happy with this new look. As Chad said, "This really makes the rest of our house look bad." We really do need to work on other rooms, but I have had enough home improvement for awhile. As I am sure my mother has also. She spent three more days last week working when everyone else had left and I had gone back to work. Thanks again mom, I love you.


This is a picture from the entryway looking into the kitchen.


The entry way with the table we painted black because we had so much black paint left over from the cabinets. Obviously, I have to redecoreate this room also. I do not know what I am going to do with all of the things I had in these rooms from before. Garage sales are way to much work!!
This last pic is to show an up close picture of what my sis's and I called "the eye sore". Our trim was so beat up it looked horrible. Repainting the rest of it is going to stink, but it makes a huge difference.

It looks great!!! That sure is alot of cabinets to paint. I don't think I would have made it thru a project like that. You did a great job!!!

It looks great! I stained all my kitchen cabinets a few months after we moved in and I know how much work that was. You all did a great job.

The pictures look great, but I agree with Hilary, they don't do it justice. It is even better in person. Guess I need to come over and start working on trim:D I love you, too!
