Our New Kitchen

After months of playing with the design and adjusting and tweaking and selecting and budgeting, reading reviews and deciding on a look, we finally went with an IKEA kitchen with a cottage type of door style.  Surprisingly, IKEA has some great reviews on their kitchen and since a 30K investment is not in our future to go HGTV-worthy, and a move may be in our future, we decided on this:

We have a big eating area over to the left, but haven’t decided if we will install two built-in desks/kitchen bench in the middle or whether we will need more storage so are going to wait and see how all of our ‘essentials’ fit into this storage.

That other kid on the right is overwhelmed by the squeals of delight coming from my two as Thomas pulls into Knapford Station.  It was a small price to pay, because yesterday I came home to this:

I see a lot of assembly in my future, but man, oh man am I looking forward to taking a sledgehammer to our kitchen now!  Woot!
