The kitchen...wait for FINISHED!!!

So, I have been a terrible blogger and completely neglected updating for quite some time.  For that, I am sorry!  To make up for it, I'm sharing some photos of what we have accomplished in these last few weeks!

The kitchen finally has a new countertop, cooktop, oven, sink, and faucet!

 Cooktop: Nutid from IKEA, $599

Now we just have to replace that ugly almond colored hood.  First, we have to decide if we want to take out the cabinet above it and put in a microwave with vent system or just replace the current hood with a white one that would blend in better.  Thoughts?

Oven: Nutid from IKEA,  $299.  A steal that was marked down from $699 because they are discontinuing their 24" ovens.  (:

Just a reminder of the before with some afters to compare!  I am absolutely in love with it! 

We still have a small list of things left to do:
-Switch out hood
-Make roman shade for window above sink
-Purchase and install garbage disposal
-Make drum shade that matches roman shade, and swap out ceiling fan on dinette side of kitchen with drum shade.
-Touch up paint on cabinets (we still have yet to get around to that!)
-Replace dishwasher??

Now, let's look again at the cost of this mini-reno.
