I do plan to get out this weekend as im hearing the weather is suppose to be nice. However, we are doing a bit in our kitchen, when we bought this new build just under two years ago there wasnt enough counter or storage. So we have ordered a couple of cabinets to give us a bit more of a workspace and storage. The room is very long but also very narrow which has made things even more difficult, if we had factored in a island right from the start it would have worked with a small one attached to where the dishwasher is but we didnt, so that would mean ripping everything apart and starting over, well we all know budgets these days, its just not going to happen. The end of the cupboard where dishwasher is, will change and the wall with the fridge is will also take a change and im SOOOOOOOOOOOOO FREAKED hoping that this guy who is doing it, is right about what he has suggested. THE IDEA IS TO MOVE PANTRY TO WHERE DROP DOWN CUPBOARD IS, THE DROP CUPBOARD MAY OR MAY NOT STAY, SLIDE FRIDGE OVER A FEW INCHES AND ADD A BASE AND UPPER CABINET.....EEEK! THIS IS THE PART THAT SCARES ME, I HAVE MADE MY OWN MOCK UP AS YOU WILL SEE IN THE PICTURE, no expert by any This is how you see the kitchen now, as you can see no personal touches YET and hopefully when i post again its going to be with good news that all went well.........uggg! HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!

Home improvement projects are always a bit scary, but just keep your eye on the end result. I think this looks like a terrific idea. Be sure to take lots of pictures to share with us...:)

I think pretty much everyone who has a house built wishes they'd done something different after the fact. It's so hard to envision how a space will look and feel on paper.

Good luck with your kitchen makeover, Janet. I hope it all works out according to plan!!

It's supposed to be 27 tomorrow. Not sure I believe it!! Enjoy your weekend whatever the weather turns out to be like :-)

Take a deep breath as it will all work out. It will be nice to have the extra space. I get nuts just picking out a paint color:)
