WHAT’S WRONG With This Picture?
! OLD Fridge, shelves and a
Box -Style water heater!
(That doorway goes to the great-room/dining area)
On the left of the fridge is a hallway to the bath/bedrooms.
Where I was standing , there is another entrance on my left to the small front room, a window behind me, and another door to the laundry;screen porch on my right.
See the stool? There needs to be a dishwasher there.
OLD florescent light fixture.
Old stove. At least is was usable until we were ready to install the new one!
I hate to admit it, but our new appliances sat in the front room for nearly 6 weeks, until the kitchen floor was in.

This shows the hall that leads to the bathroom, which lies behind the refrigerator .Then, you can see the kitchen window, and realize there are doorways on either side of it.
There is no suitable spot for any corner style cabinetry-as there are 4 ways to this kitchen!
I did eventually place a second-hand drop-leaf round table under the window, with 2 small chairs.
We chose one tile for all the areas that required tile. Those are: Kitchen. laundry, dining area, part of the hall adjoining kitchen to bath, and bath.
Actually, that little trick helped make the listing photos a little bit more appealing, believe it or not!
WAIT till you see the results- but first, a few more BEFORE’S.
|Kitchen before painting was complete|
BELOW: You are seeing a huge gap and overhanging counters. I’m now enjoying 2 brand new 24″ 3-drawer units! One went where that water-heater had been! We had a plumber move it next to the washing machine, located behind the sink wall. I actually ended up liking it for a laundry countertop . That 18″ cabinet did not get re-used. It may end up in the shed at some point.
NOW- SOME CURRENT “AFTER” PHOTOS!!!
|Kitchen has new tile,paint and a dishwasher!
BELOW:Vintage, round, dropped -leaf table with 2 chairs. Salvaged shelf from DIY store- turned upside down, it gave me some space to lay things down by the stove! I made the table cloth to be used with the leaves in the down position. Thru the doorway is our new laundry/sewing room!
