The kitchen is finally done! And I’ve got pictures to prove it. ;D
First of all, take a look at the horror that was the kitchen when we first moved in:
Excuse the mess – that was moving in day, last year.
Now, this is a rented house, but in Lima (usually) when you rent, you’re responsible for repairs, care and uptake. So, not only were we allowed to paint the kitchen, why, it was practically required! Yay! Plus, the construction site next door caused some hairline fractures in the walls, so they repaired that and then painted the whole kitchen for us, so we were already off to a good start.
Finally, Mom got here, and put the finishing touches over the last couple weeks – and here’s the wonderful results:
We even have video! Ignore me babbling on in the background – I didn’t know mom was recording. *oops*
In other news, the cute little stove you see in the pictures has decided it doesn’t want to cook anymore. Dinner tonight will be a challenge, using only the oven and a rice cooker to make a complete meal – hooray for the steamer tray in the rice pot!
