We haven’t gotten as far on our mini kitchen update as I would have liked, but replacing the upper cabinet and getting the microwave installed has made a huge difference in how our kitchen feels.
|Microwave installed. Still, need to finish the cabinet doors.
Getting the microwave off the counter has made it feel larger. Just to get an idea of how it was going to look, I leaned the doors up against the cabinet for the picture, but I still have to put the final topcoat of poly on them. I wish I had thought to take a better “before” picture, but I honestly thought I had some.
|Not a great before picture.
|Before of where the microwave and countertop oven used to be.

As you can see, it’s opened things up a bit. But we still have a long way to go. We need to install two shelves between the cabinet and the microwave…one to hold the countertop oven and the other to hold my glass pot lids. That change alone will open up a lot of countertop space.
Sorry about the poor picture quality. I’m fighting a nasty cold right now. My eyes are itchy and watery and my nose is runny, so I’m not in tip top condition and it shows in the pictures.
So there’s your mini update. Pretty good so far!
