I've taken on quite a few renovation project over the last several years. This kitchen renovation was one of my favourites. I love looking back at these pictures - here's a kitchen renovation in progress over a few years.
In my first place in Chester NS, I bought a sweet, charming cottage, it needed a ton of work but I really loved this place. I would spend some time here in the summer months and work on random projects in my spare time. When I bought the house the kitchen was a disaster and pretty gross! The laminate floor, ancient appliances, lack of cupboards and brown paneling weren't going to cut it. It did have a charming built-in pantry I painted white and kept.
Originally it was a strange kitchen with a horrible layout, and it was very small. There was a wall separating the kitchen from a back porch/storage/entry area. I knew by removing that wall I would create a much larger space and have a nice large window on the back wall. The back porch had a drop ceiling of brown paneling and I discovered above that was a huge, high cathedral ceiling.
