Can you

This is our kitchen, I loved it before.....

With this great L-shaped bar and tons of storage...

But.... I love even more with it's new recycled look....We reused the same counter tops and cabinets and just modified the space for a better "flow".

Since the hubs does cabinets for a living our only costs were the tile for the new back splash that I am proud to say, I helped with. And the supplies for the island base.
I love the fresh/open feel to my kitchen even better than before. I love having a hubs with skills. They may not be computer hacking skills or num-chuck(sp?) skills but they are way better.

The best part about all of this... we have only been in this house that WE built, for almost five years and have redone almost every room on the main floor... Just two more to go.

I was already so jealous and now you had to go and do this? I just HATE you! (That really means I love you and want to be like you)
I think your boyfriend is borderline AMAZING!!! Who wants a man with num chuck skills anyway? That gets old soooooooo fast.

That looks awesome and as the daughter of a cabinet guy, I'm hard to impress! I'm especially impressed that you were able to reuse the countertops. Your hubs does great work. Mine is pretty darn handy but he says its impossible to compete with my Daddy.

You will love that island for sewing projects. It's so nice to be able to layout your fabric etc. and move all the way around when you cut out the pieces etc. Even when I had a dedicated sewing area I always used my island for cutting out the patterns.

We're going to do some Master Bedroom and Bath remodeling this weekend but its considerably less exciting since we're doing it because of a little flood!

That is a very nice change from what you had (which was also very nice). Very professional looking...which means expensive...when it actually wasn't. Love that!
