The "Before" Pictures

I recently moved into an old farmhouse that needs a lot of work done to the kitchen. Here are the "before" pics:

Thanks to some kind hep (read hard work) from the Atwaters, the walls were scrubbed down and I was able to get a coat of paint on.

It actually looks pretty good, in those pictures, except the west wall, then you can see the work that it needed..
Paint can make a difference...

We noticed a difference on the top of the refrigerator! Looking forward to your mid-project pics. I will not spill the beans about what you did to it.

Hi Elliott,

I'm an Atwater that grew up in the house your remodeling. Kara is my niece. I grew up in the downstairs room with french doors, curtained on both sides. Recently, I saw a photo of my mom and brother in the kitchen from the 1980s time frame. Glad the house is being fixed back up again. I remember the refrigerator right next to the stove back in the day. A picnic table used to be in the kitchen to seat all the visitors we had over. Not until later years did we have the money to buy a large table to seat 8-10. Also remembering the "peaking" we used to do through the 2nd floor registers. Andy would also know what mom was cooking in the kitchen too because of them :)

Looks great - would love to see more pictures of the project as it continues.
