Goodbye Roasting Spit!


As you may recall, many moons ago I promised you photos of the finished kitchen endeavor.

What you may not know is that I proudly and promptly took pictures for you and even went to the trouble of offloading said photos from my camera by placing them upon my desktop. I then completely forgot about the follow through part where I make snide comments (lo, my favorite part) and post the actual photos. Instead, I went about trying to figure out how to make electric stove top popcorn and other assorted essential "new kitchen" tasks like building a pantry with a rubber mallet and smashing my foot into every new corner from every possible angle. Some fourteen batches of popcorn later, I have (digitally re) mastered the art of popping corn and while in the midst of some good old fashioned toe-stub induced yelping, was reminded for no good reason to post the completed kitchen photos for you to see.

By now, my desktop was so polluted that it literally took longer to find the pictures then it did to remodel the kitchen. Alas, without further ado, I give you... The Kitchen!

Please, save your ooh's and ahh's for the comment section.



And it's functional, too!

It is a wonderful kitchen. Quite functional and fun. The colors are great! Very soothing and one feels quite relaxed in it. (uncluttered of course;)

That kitchen looks friggin' sweet. I am in the middle of doing mine now.

Also, you're cat looks like my old cat "peekaboo". She was a tuxedo cat too. Tuxedo cat's are awesome because they have class (when they're not licking their butt).
