The End Is Here!

The end of my house remodeling series, that is. With a few strokes of my paint brush, everything, even the touch-up work, was finished yesterday. The last room I have to show you is our kitchen. This is the room that wasn't just remodeled... it was RE-remodeled. If you have read Not to Us or Back on Track, you know the story, so without further ado...


We have a portable dishwasher and could never find a place for it to stay when not in use. The built-in table in the forground of this picture took up a lot of room and generally served as a catch-all.

This was the last window to be replaced. It had to be special ordered and took a few months to get. Once again you can see how the built-in and dishwasher take up too much space.

Our laundry area is in the kitchen. The shelving over the washer was falling apart.


The built-in is gone, and there is so much more room!

The cabinets are now solid white, and we redid the back splash in peach. I added a decorative border with peach flowers and nuthatches... a true birders kitchen.

We have a new back door and added new cabinets above the washer. We moved the washing machine to make room for the dishwasher. It is still portable but has a good, out-of-the-way spot for when it is not in use.

My father-in-law installed this new window and molding between the cabinets. You can see my honeysuckle bushes and tall pines outside... also a birders delight.

I am thankful for everyone who helped us with this HUGE undertaking.  I am thankful for all of you who prayed for us, too. Thank you. We ask for your prayers again as we intend to sell this house and will be listing it on Monday. We thank the Lord for how he has provided for this remodel and trust him to bring a buyer in his time.

Our dishwasher is broken, and to fix it DH had it pulled out and it's been in the middle of my kitchen for 2 weeks. So I can totally related to what a pain it is. : )

Oh, I didn't realize you were going to sell the house! At least you will get to enjoy it for a little while. Will pray for a quick sell.
