I was pretty sure we had not taken a proper "before" picture, but I just found one when I was scrolling through some old pictures. We loved our old kitchen. It was one of the deciding factors for us that got us in this house in the first place. This post is not one of those " Can you believe how ugly it was?" posts. It is rather seeing your child's picture when he/she was little and reminiscing the good old times. And then you look at the big kid in front of you and feel pleased with how much he has grown.
So, here is our big kid today. The old outer wall came to about where the new island ends, and rest is what we have added.
We are working on cabinets, drawers, and work surface for the office area, which currently looks like this. I crammed things in there so we could start using the space and find out what we wanted.
Curious about the grey contraption on the window? It is a hydroponic gardening system Scott ordered online so we can start growing our own herbs. I think it is a great idea. The only problem is that there is no getting around how ugly it is. Scott wants me to give it a chance until we start seeing green. I am pretty sure I will still want it somewhere else. I wonder if Asha would care if we put it on her window. She has a sunny one.
