Totally unstaged, here's my new kitchen, as it is now!

This is the wobbly, ugly, falling apart cabinet that was in the house when Travis bought the place 12 years ago, the summer before we were married. It worked, did the job for 12 years but it was ready to be put out to pasture (the trash) I was glad to see it go!
It was replaced with this. Solid wood, drawers to keep things more organized, and it is screwed to the wall so it can't wobble on the uneven floor. (gotta love old houses with their sloping floors:-)
The counter top is just a piece of plywood at this point, hopefully we will soon have a permanent one. I can live with plywood for awhile (maybe even 12 years!)
Love the new VCT tile floor. I'd recommend it to anyone!
The best overall shot I could get. Please excuse the groceries on the counter, sea monkeys hatching on top to the fridge, Little Sister eating her snack, cookie jar still hanging out on stove, crafts on the refrigerator door, avocados ripening on windowsill, etc. You say you wouldn't have noticed all that if I hadn't pointed it out? Yeah, well I always have to do that huh??! Didn't want you to think it's always that way;-)
Hopefully the curtain rods will soon be up instead of leaning against the cupboard. I'm wanting to go to Columbus to Sew to Speak to get curtain fabric and Travis doesn't want to put the rods up till I have fabric. I am planning to not put them at the top but about 1/3 of the way down so you see part of the window. T is just sure if he hangs the rods now I will have to have them moved 'cause the fabric won't be long enough or something. Since I rarely work with fabric I doubt I can figure that out ahead of time huh?? (lots of sarcasm on the last sentence!!!)
Large red 'F' had to stay!
