Anyway, above is basically the north and west walls of the kitchen from before.
On the east wall was a closet...
... and this is the south wall - notice the funny lines in the drywall from a door that used to be there.
Aaron started this project after Christmas and got a lot of it done before the wedding. He took off all of the sheet-rock on the wall and started over.
He boxed in the duct work (a big job!), hung new sheet-rocked, mudded it, sanded it, and painted it. Then we put the sink and dishwasher back in place.
I came over one day to "help out" - we did some dusting/cleaning, took off the wallpaper border, and did some sanding.
Priscilla came along too (I think my family is glad to have a break from chaperoning :) ) - she's wiping down the door we put on the closet/pantry.
While we were gone on our honeymoon, some of the church people put in a new floor, then when we got home, we spent basically the first week finishing the project up and organizing all our our wedding presents in the right places!
Here Aaron is putting new shelves in the pantry. They're very sturdy and it's big enough to hold all our food.
Almost the end! Aaron says there's still a few little things that need to be done, but it's very nice and I'm loving having "my own" kitchen! In addition to the other things I mentioned, we (ok, Aaron) painted, moved in a different fridge, put in a new light over the sink and did more rearranging and cleaning (well I did help with that!).
You might get to see it someday because we're planning on having lots of company - theoretically :)
