Yes, it was bad from every angle, but not now.
1. New upper cabinet doors. Originals were hanging ugly as Florida chads after a Katrina.
2. New lower cabinet doors and in fact the design had to hide badly cut openings and missing bottom fiberglass. Multo-ugly.
3. New shelving and inner/under cabinet support structure. (Wasn't anything there.)
4. New faucet because the old one needed to be flung a far far distance.
5. New stove because the old one had unfixably froze aluminum valves that cost too much to replace anyway, and all the metallic surfaces, and knobs, wuz truely-ugly.
6. New lighting
because I don't need no low-rent-looking floorescant AC fixtures under the cabinets in my kitchen. (Got a converter.)
7. New storage space where the fridge
was because I removed that fridge
, just because I could. Well, it was
ugly, very heavy, and hardly space-efficient. That was a knuckle-busting, filled with curses job, for sure. Anyway, still glad I did it.
8. New kitchen utensils/cups/potholders hang-bar over the countertop. Made from some nice quarter-sawn sycamore, by the way.
Still much to do. In fact, though the stove works beautifully the water pump isn't hooked up to send water to the faucet and the drain won't drain anywhere good, since I fiberglassed up the original vent for the fridge
.... And I'll post a picture if
this ?@*%#+@¿ software ever allows it!
