Day 10-a recent home improvement

Monday, September 20, 2010

Still trying hard to get back on top of this's day 10 (late..I know!).

We bought our first home about a year and a half ago now. It's perfectly livable but about 20 years old so needs some TLC. We have BIG plans for this house and a list stuck up on the fridge of all the things we want to do to it. Some are big, some are small...but one day we WILL cross them all off!

One of our first home improvements was our kitchen.

The kitchen in this house was pretty sad. It was 20 years old and totally looked it (unlike most of the house). The stove was retro and something you could no longer buy. The cupboard doors were swollen and wouldn't shut properly and the tiled floor was cracked..everywhere!

Cue us and our first home buyers grant...we couldn't think of a better way to spend some of that money!

In came the kitchen reno guy who drew up some amazing plans...and away we went!

Our job was to rip out the old kitchen. Wow did DH, my dad and one of DH's mates have fun with this!

Then in 2 days the new kitchen was installed!

My favourite part is the down lights installed under the cupboards which shine down on the benches...very cool!
