Worth the Wait Kitchen Update: Guest

K + B at K + B Adventures in Renovating  have done a nice job with their kitchen update.  It looks like it was worth the wait.

I suppose the headline can be misleading in that as many of you know, our kitchen did not come together in one day.  Not even 100 or 200 days… Lets say from the first slam of a sledgehammer to the installation of running water was closer to 236 days.  I will add that we only lived in the house for 206 of those days.  Is that better? Anyway, the point is, that it’s done and I’m beyond super happy. 

I must say all the blood, sweat, nasty phone calls, destroyed plans, heartbreak and tears have all been worth it. 

I like to look at the Before pictures because they remind me of less better days.  My camera ate all the good ones so this is all we have.  OOps.

This is a picture from the living room before we moved in… you can see how low the cabinets hung and also the beauty of a chandelier.

Clearly the biggest flaw in the kitchen is that we dont have enough wine in the shelf.  

For those of you that care, we’re hacking away at the budget breakdown. I think with all our secret ninja money saving tricks and my ability to cry on command, we came out over budget but under wayyyy over budget.  Make sense?  No? Ok it doesn’t matter.  I’ll tell you how much money we blew once we locate a calculator.

Unfortunately remodeling does takes time.  I completely understand.  Especially when you are like us by, saving money, raising a family and doing it yourself.  It looks like it was worth the wait though.  I can’t wait to start on ours.

Would you wait for something this nice?
