When I started working on updating my kitchen in May, one of the problems I had with my kitchen is that there was a buffet and hutch built in as part of the kitchen. The sliding glass doors on that hutch were not very practical for my kitchen. I needed more cabinets where I could close a door and leave what is inside out of sight to those who are visiting.
As you can see by the before picture I had already given up on trying to keep the hutch for the "pretty" things that I owned. We were storing all sorts of things up there. I was tired of everyone seeing my mess!
The glass came out along with the removable shelving and then the painting began. After a couple of month of making the shelves permanent and planning the cabinet doors, we have a new look for the shelving and all of my unsightly things are hidden nicely behind beautiful white cupboard doors. There are so many things I love about my new kitchen. Although I am short three handles that I will have to go pick up tomorrow, it looks a lot better than it did!
Tomorrow I will organize all of the storage space to match the other side of my kitchen which is much more efficient after I have purged a lot of things I wasn't using. I am feeling lighter every day!
