a month of a kitchen redo

we have been wanting to remodel our kitchen since we moved in 5 1/2 years ago. well for christmas, mr. farmer said that a kitchen remodel would be my present.
so for the last month we have been
and figuring out
just want we wanted.
our home is a 1930's sears kit home.
unfortunately, the previous owners took out the character
and added 70's character.
we (ok, me) have been wanting to add the 30's back in.
this is the old view of the wall by the pantry. we decided to switch the refrig and this cabinet around to offer a more open layout. (you can see the view of the kitchen as you entered down below. it was blocked by a huge black refrig)
we tore off the old paneling...
i was hoping to expose the brick chimney.
but they had plastered over it.
oh well.
we have instead some 'great' wallpaper.
here is the old view going into the kitchen.
nice black box huh?

this is the new view.
some nice shelves instead.
we just finished covering the wallpaper wall last night. but my cameras battery died, otherwise i would show you pictures.
what we found was some 100 year old wood that my father-in-law had from the old house they tore dawn 30 years ago.
pretty sure it is oak. but not positive.
i would like to find more to cover some other walls in the house.

would should be getting our new countertop in a week of so.
i am so excited!

we found a farmers sink and a wall mounted facuet. i will be posting pictures as we get more work done.
i can't wait to check to see what you all have been up too. i have missed blogging.

have a great day!
