I BELIEVE! Aka, for Natasha

Sometime in February I went insane and decided to remodel my kitchen. By myself. With no prior knowledge what-so-ever.
And keep in mind as you read, that I am no photographer or professional home decorator, like PW or Liz. So forgive...well, everything you're about to see.
After about a month, Brett got pretty excited too. Of course, most of the work was done at this point. So I thought.

I don't have before pictures, because, frankly, I don't ever want to see that old kitchen again. Ever. I will drown it in gasoline and burn it alive, if I must.

This is what we had left over. Beautiful red mahogany cabinets, with a gorgeous, colorful back splash provided by Scott's Tiling.

And of course, a delicious loaf of bread provided by my wonderful RL President, Sister Warner. My kids didn't know bread could be warm!

And I didn't know that one day I would love my kitchen. Warm bread and pretty kitchens used to be a myth to me. I am a believer. Hallelujah.

And yes, I appreciate the IRONY that I have three ovens and that my children have never tasted home baked bread. Ironecles, you feisty devil you.

It looks so beautiful! I really want to start ripping out my cabinets now... In fact, maybe I'll do that tonight instead of sleeping! Ha! But seriously, good job!

Your cabinets look sooo good. I think I've just been inspired to do it too. Mine are natural oak. Love the backsplash and countertops too. Your kitchen looks Awesome. Now, you're ready to make some bread. I would have loved to see the before pictures. Have a great weekend!

Ooooh... just catching up on your blog and had to comment. The kitchen looks great! And thanks for the compliment.. but my current kitchen has hideous formica countertop/backsplash combo. Eeek. Wish you were closer and could help me fix it. Or better yet, rip it out. :)
