Dear Friends, My kitchen is going to be remodeled over the next two months and I desperately need YOUR help!
When you spend every waking moment in your kitchen, there are few things that could be more exciting than a kitchen makeover.
….My wedding day, the birth of my children, kitchen makeover. That’s pretty much the order of exhilaration in my little world.
We live in a lovely 80-something year old home, in an eclectic old neighborhood.
When we moved to Asheville, NC we looked at house after house, many much newer and bigger than the one we bought. Some with fantastic mountain views.
Yet we walked into this old place, with unlevel floors and creaking staircases, and I looked at Lt. Dan and sighed, “This is it.”
It wasn’t just a house, it was a home.
Where history and character were rooted generations before our time, and will remain long after.
We bought our home, knowing many renovations would follow. In the last few years we’ve moved the laundry room, added a bathroom, and painted EVERY INCH of the old girl.
Yet the kitchen still needs some love.
I can’t complain much about my current kitchen.
For an old house it’s very spacious. (The previous owners took out a mud room to extend it.) It has nice granite counter tops and a big island that I love working on, with my family gathered around.
But there are some issues.
For one, the cabinets are laminated plywood, so they peel.
The cabinets don’t offer a lot of storage options, so there is a great deal of wasted space.
The fridge is in a corner, meaning the door only opens to 90 degrees.
Meaning I’ve never been able to take out the shelves for a thorough cleaning.
(Gross, right? I couldn’t bare to show you the inside.)
And there is wasted wall space due to old windows.
It’s not a bad kitchen.
Actually, it’s a pretty nice kitchen.
However, these little annoyances get the stink-eye every time I see them, and kitchen cabinetry has come a long way since these babies were put in.
I’ve dreamed of remodeling my kitchen for so long, I almost can’t believe the day is finally here.
With the help of Shenandoah Cabinetry, this spring my kitchen will experience a complete overhaul.
I’ve looked at Shenandoah Cabinetry many times, walking through the Lowes Design Center.
I always stop and flip through the door styles and finishes, daydreaming about what my kitchen might look like someday.
