My heart may have skipped a beat when I got the e-mail. The IKEA kitchen event was on again!
Who wouldn't want IKEA gift cards back for purchasing a kitchen?? I love IKEA.
Always have, always will.
After months of debating on how we'd like to do our kitchen, a few kitchen events had come and gone, and we just weren't ready to commit. Until this time. We had perfected our plan, and saved our nickles and dimes, and waited...
Just to give you a recap of our kitchen's journey this far: our before picture.
No appliances, leaky taps, dingy (but solid wood) cabinets, odd layout, and a door separating the kitchen from the rest of the house. For someone who loves open concept, it was rough.
There were still a few things that bothered me, though. Like these crazy lazy susan's that threatened to chop my fingers off if I got a little carried away. Don't ask...
That, and the missing countertop over the dishwasher and the side panel beside the dishwasher that may have fell on our son once or five times.
All in all, it was a good kitchen, and I do have hopes of salvaging the cabinets to use in my laundry room, but I am pretty excited for the new open concept design. Walls are gonna be knocked down, doors moved, and it's just going to be awesome. I know it.
