In a little over five weeks my kitchen went from a 1960’s Mickey D’s color themed hell to a lovely, modern, functional room. Here are some pictures of the finished product. I still have a couple of projects to complete-like stripping and staining the door to the laundry room and putting the transitions from the kitchen to dining room floors down.

There you have it! I would like to thank Job and Johnny from scottsavoie for all the great work they did. My house is old and weird and it was not an easy job, I know.
