Crazy Weather Days And Kitchen Before/After


February weather - wow it's a roller coaster, right? It was 77 degrees Monday with severe thunderstorms late Monday night. At 3:30am Tuesday morning a hailstorm moved through our daughter's town, 55 miles away, and it damaged their roof and her car. Fortunately no one was hurt. Yesterday our high temperature was 23, and we are under a winter storm warning until this evening, not common here in north Texas. We have about a quarter inch of ice and sleet on the ground, and "thunder sleet" and more ice are in the forecast.

The kitchen reno is complete! Here are some before and after shots. Would you believe I forgot to take very many before shots?! So the before shots are actually before we moved into this house and are the kitchen photos from the real estate listing! We don't have all the decor that the previous owners had on top of the cabinets. The walls were light yellow when we first moved in back in October 2020, and as soon as we moved in we had them painted a light gray called "White Pepper".

This is from the real estate listing for the house before we purchased it in September 2020. The door to the right has been replaced with sliding glass doors.


Although the lighting isn't the best due to our cloudy weather, this will give you an idea of the change in the kitchen. Painting the cabinets white made the granite appear darker. We would LOVE to replace that granite with black granite, but the previous owners had just installed it before they listed the house, and it is a nice grade of granite and very well done, so that is a "maybe" project down the road.

AFTER - my husband is going to install under counter lights in this area.

Although the photos aren't the quality you'll find on a DIY blog, I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our kitchen!
