Our new kitchen is the subject of my next post. Here are the before pictures to give you an idea of what we started with. The cabinets are original to the house, circa 1979. They had been painted white – I believe they were originally a dark walnut color. I forgot to take photos of the insides before my husband gleefully ripped them off the wall, but the inside shelves were all severely sagging. I was convinced that the shelves would give way in the middle of the night and send all our dishes crashing onto the floor. I may have actually prayed for this to happen so we could get a new kitchen years before we actually did, but no such luck.
