It's done! Here's our new kitchen!

After two weeks of dust, broken water pipes, many dinners out and general upheaval, our kitchen is done. And we love it!
New kitchen

Old kitchen

Moving back in has been interesting. We discovered that the bottom cabinets are taller than the old ones and the quartz counter top is thicker than the old laminate which is about an inch too much to allow me to keep my big Kitchen Aid mixer on the counter. My older one is able to sit up there though. And drawers that are not as deep as the old ones mean finding new places to keep some of our utensils and other ccoking gadgets. But it's still a great kitchen.

Having the extra cabinet space in the corner has been nice and we're just about done unpacking. Now if can just remember where things are!

We love having an icemaker and a water dispenser in the Fridge! No more ice trays! woot

Bring on the holidays! I'm ready to get baking!

So when's the celebration party? :-)

What about one of those lift-out shelves like they use for sewing machines for your Kitchen Aid mixer? Or wouldn't that work with your new cabinets?

Your kitchen looks even better in person! (she brags)

Great kitchen! I know you are thrilled. With that kind of speed,you should marry your contractor (or let me adopt him!)
