Kitchen Reveal No. 1!

Okay, here's a quick review of what the kitchen looked like when we bought it...
 
 
note tile and lighting...

as well as funky cupboards and absence of upper cupboards...
 
hot dog sink still baffles me...

and finally the butler's pantry.
 
Much later...
 
*By the way, I would have to say that Austin really impressed me in the interim with what he figured out how to do in the kitchen. Recessed lighting, electrical, installing countertops, plumbing, undermount sink, etc. Underneath his suave exterior lies a rugged handyman.
 
Ta-da!

Hey, a real kitchen!
 
With lovely custom walnut countertops that everyone said was a bad idea... 
 
a classed up butler's pantry,
 
with the old chimney brick exposed for character. And for memories of the toasty bird skeleton.
 
This is Kitchen Reveal number one because there is still more to do. Backsplash behind the stove and kitchen sink, open shelving on the wall by sink, and definitely baseboards. Just finishing touches. Still, I think of the people without homes in the Philippines and can't be anything but grateful. Especially for a sink and a stove. Until you go without those two things for a month you don't realize just how nice it is to have them.

Wow! The transformation definitely stunned me. The kitchen looks far from the dull and dimmed state it was when you bought it. I can’t imagine what’s still more to do, but I trust your renovating skills that it will make it more superb than it already is. Good luck!

Like you, I don’t know what the previous owners were thinking with the funky cupboards and sink. Well, I guess it looked better back when it was newly-made. Anyway, I like how it turned out, now that it’s more color-coordinated and organized. Cheers to your successful kitchen revamp!
