13: March- Time for an updated kitchen, Houseworth's like my portraits, and I like their remodeling, so a trade was made. We took out the huge metal hood and tiled that area. I painted the walls and re-stained the cabinets a darker color, and ordered reeded glass for the doors. Kenton framed in the area that used to be open along the stove. Putting the stove back we only had 1/8" clearance to work with, once the stove was back we realized it was now too low for the cabinets! It was hard going two weeks without a sink, but it was so worth it! It was all done in time for Brett A's birthday party! | before
