This was our kitchen last summer. We had decided to do this renovation with a low budget and make the most of it by our selves. We wanted to keep some parts from the old kitchen because it was in good shape even if it has been there since 1966. It wasn't easy with all these demolishing and construction but with a little help from friends and family we were almost ready before the autumn.
This almost has continued and unfortunately still does. There are still moldings waiting for reaching the ceiling. But we have been using this new kitchen so much. I really love it because we can be gathered the whole family baking ore cooking and sometimes just sitting around the kitchen island (please tell me what you call it in U.S) spending time together.
Last Christmas when our families were here we used it as a "food table". Very practically for both warm and cold dishes.
Oh, I haven't arranged this photo, but as you know this blog isn't about home styling. Others do that much better. I don't know what I'm good at, when I visit other bloggers I admire them a lot but I'm so grateful for the response I have got from you who sometimes visit me and are understanding about my lack of good English. I am learning more and more...
