I mentioned our continuing kitchen makeover here. Well, now it’s finished!
We put in new hanging cabinets as well as new floor cabinets, which means more counter space! 🙂 I love the additional workspace. It makes cooking so much easier!
As I said in the previous post, the cabinets weren’t an exact match to the ones we currently have. But now that they are done, you would never know!
The other thing that is different… the counter top. When we initially purchased our counter tops, we purchased them at Home Depot. These were the basic, laminate counter tops that they sell. Well.. when we when to get the counter top this time around, we found out they no longer have the same style that we have! Luckily, Lowe’s sells a very, very similar style that we ended up purchasing. If you don’t know they are different, it’s something you’d never notice. So it worked out well.
You’ll notice that our microwave cart is still there. We were both hoping we would be able to get rid of it, but we have SO MUCH STUFF! Maybe someday we’ll go through and try to re-organize, or possibly get rid of some stuff, but for now, it stays. We just need the space.
While we made over our kitchen, I made over our spice cabinet! I’ve been on the lookout for years now for some sort of spice rack that doesn’t take up counter space, or hang on the wall. We just don’t have the space for those. I finally found this.
I ordered one, without realizing how many spices we actually have, and quickly filled it.
You see that top shelf? That’s what my spice cabinet used to look like. It took me forever to find what I was looking for, and usually 2 or 3 of them ended up on the floor in the process.
I ordered another one of these spice racks. Now they are so easy to find! I placed them all in alphabetical order and it takes me all of 30 seconds to find what I need.
I am so excited that all of our kitchen plans are finally done! Now on to our next project! 🙂
