The Cabinet Removal

One of the first drastic things I knew I wanted to change in our home were these 4 cabinets. They are totally blocking the view of well, everything. It took me about 3 days of living here before I convinced my husband to take them down with me. I made sure to not put anything in these as I was unpacking our kitchen. That way I would know for sure if I needed the space or not. I haven't even filled my other cabinets so we were good to go!

Isn't this so much better?!

Of course I couldn't get any pictures as we were actually taking them down but picture me trying to hold up half of the cabinets while my husband unscrewed and was holding the other half. I'm sure it was a sight to see!

I have some big plans for this kitchen. We don't plan on doing a major overhaul for about 5 more years but our short term plans include getting new counters, a new sink, possibly putting bead board on that back side of the peninsula, and painting the cabinets and trim. I'll admit I'm a little overwhelmed with the process and time it will take to paint the cabinets but I know it will be worth it.
