The Remodeling Of A Kitchen

“It was twenty years ago today,
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They’ve been going in and out of style
But they’re guaranteed to raise a smile.
So may I introduce to you
The act you’ve known for all these years,
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

See, if I was really creative I would have written a song about remodeling the kitchen and what the past five weeks have been like to the tune of the song above. Instead I’ll take you from before to after.

It began as a small kitchen which didn’t make effective use of the space.

Crowded and chock full of too many items the clutter was unbearable. So we gutted it .and began to rebuild. Slowly it took shape and developed a form that looked like something functional.

Gradually the missing pieces were added and in a short time the new kitchen materialized.

I can’t begin to express how happy I am that I am not stuck eating out anymore and have my own kitchen again.

    It’s gorgeous! And it probably didn’t seem like it since you were living through the mess and inconvenience, but (as another renovations sufferer) that was incredibly fast!
