New Kitchen!

The Kitchen is complete.  We installed all new appliances, new back splash, pin lights over the counter, and paint.  We also had to modify the cabinets a bit to get the microwave and refrigerator to fit.  Here are before and after pictures.
These two pics have the old backsplash which looked like bathroom tile and the old appliances. The color was like an army green. 

The Color is now a nice creamy yellowish.  Really brightens it up.  Love the backsplash.  It has a border in the middle. Matches the granite counterops beautifully.  The Prince did all the work.

1 tsp. sugar

It's been awhile since I last posted.  That's what happens when you go back to work full time for a little while.  But, alas summer is here and my contract work has ended just in time for me to enjoy the summer breeze on the castle steps.  Ahhhh, the castle.   The castle is my dream home that the Prince and I live in with the Court Jester and the Maidan Lady.  Me of course being the princess, and yes I'm living the fairy tale life.  It wasn't always a fairy tale and I went out with a lot of toads and knights that thought they could pass for the Prince.  There were a lot of lonely and sad days spent locked in my tower wondering if my life would ever change ....press play.  My favorite scene from Shrek the Musical.
