Eleven and 1/2 years ago we bought our house. The kitchen was original 1950's and in bad shape/fairly unusable. We gutted/remodeled the kitchen when we moved in.
Here it was, right after it was completed the first time.
We were 23 and 24 years old and pretty excited about having a new kitchen. Of course these days I would've chosen different cabinets, but at the time, it was quite an improvement.
Now with new granite countertops, new sink and fresh paint, I feel like it's a brand new kitchen. Was just finished yesterday. I can't wait to cook in it.
Now raise your hand if you thought it would be purple.
