We've been in this house for about 7 months now. It's bigger than our old house, but not as updated. Enter: the kitchen. Home to laminate counter-tops, a small sink, and really inefficient appliances. Oh, and this ridiculously large overhang above the island:
We don't have the funds (yet) to do a full remodel, but we decided that having that thing removed would make a dramatic improvement. And it did!
The kitchen feels 100 times bigger and more open. More changes to come throughout the year (yes, I said years) as we work to make this wonderful place ours.
