Kitchen Re-do for the New Bride...

Lindsay & Kirk the day after their September wedding...


A week after our son Kirk & Lindsay were married (here)~ Lindsay began (actually started the week of the wedding!) her PhD at George Washington University & Kirk started to demo their kitchen. After all~ it was a project they wanted to get started with ~ & with all the beautiful new wedding gifts it seemed a perfect plan! And best of all Ms. Lindsay is a wonderful cook & Kirk LOVES to eat! So in between studying, working, etc... all their work is certainly paying off!
First they had to demo the WHOLE kitchen~ drywall came down, older cabinets removed, high hat lights placed, floor removed, new windows installed, etc...AND plan the placement of new cabinet, flooring, coloring, etc...

A small side cabinet with a wine holder on top...

What's really nice is that Lindsay is not one to just sit back and "watch"~ she rolled up her sleeves and worked along Kirk most of the time~ AND she did this while successfully completing her 1st class for her PhD... she is truly amazing!


New wood floors installed, new kitchen entry door, new windows...fresh paint over the newly installed drywall...

So finally a couple months~ after they starting the kitchen~it's almost ready to host Thanksgiving dinner to family & friends... Their Corina tops will be delivered & installed the Monday before the holiday.... I can smell the turkey cooking now.



White cabinets installed, new microwave...


We are very very proud of them! Can't wait to see it completed on Thanksgiving!

You've got a talented couple of kids here, no wonder you're so proud! I just adore your family, even though I've never met them. :)

I hope it'll be a really wonderful Thanksgiving! Hugs!
