Dancing in the Kitchen....

This is the before remodeling picture... You can't see it very good in this picture but the counter top was old, cracked, broken, bowed and stained. The flooring was an ugly old carpet. The ceiling had florescent lights and because of the huge apartment complex being built next door, the light lenses kept falling down and breaking. (You can see there is only one lens left!)

Here is Bryan and Laura replacing the lighting and redoing the ceiling.

It looks so much better now!

Laura replaced the door and drawer pulls and polished the wood. It's so nice to have GREAT Children who love their Mom!

Here is the finished kitchen.

In this picture you can see the new flooring.

It looks like ceramic tile but it is linoleum.

Come celebrate with me and dance with me in my kitchen!

    It looks great, Mom, and I'm glad we were able to help!

    I'll help you celebrate in your new kitchen, as long as there's warm strudel to enjoy :)

    I'm dancing! Hope you don't mind if I climb up on those counters and give them a test drive.

    It's gorgeous. I love everything about it. The countertops, the floor, your stainless steel appliances (which I know were already there), those door and drawer pulls.

    Jo, you designed a beautiful space in which to prepare delectable meals. Your children are wonderful to have gone to such effort. You are a blessed woman. You are a blessed family.

    P.S. I fixed my birthday playlist so that the controls can be worked by everyone. At least I hope so. Lee tipped me off that the scroll bar was doing a disappearing act.

    Don Coyote: Thanks son! I am happy to have it done but I enjoyed your stay and visit more!

    Lynetta: Thanks MyNetta! I love you and yours too!

    Riverpoet: Thanks for stopping by. I can empathize with you; patience is the key!

    Ellie: When are you coming down to see it? I want you to come down on your next break! Also, for now, I am going to keep my kitchen uncluttered and clean.

    Rubye Jean: I love you too!

    AJ: No strudel for you!

    San: Come on and dance (I'm too tall to dance on the counters) The coffee pot is on, come on over.
