    Well my six months of procrastination paid off when a local discount store had pre-fab two door pantries for $99 each so I grabbed a couple yesterday...

    Amazing, looks really good. Kitchens can be soooooo expensive and a pain in the butt if you don't know what you're doing. That's why when my dad builds mine I'm going on holiday somewhere with no phone coverage so I can't see what is happening. At least he's an experienced kitchen joiner, it's my partner I'm worried about. Too many beers + renovation + a bunch of people who have no idea what they're doing = a stressful mess. It was bad enough just choosing colours!

    Are you stopping here with the renovations or are you going to do the whole kitchen?

    Hi LittleKiwiChook, sounds like you've got the planned worked out icon_lol.gif.

    Wasn't intending to do the whole kitchen, the only thing I was going to do now is cut back where the old cupboard was so it doesn't stick out so far and put a melamine shell around it. I'll just leave it open with a shelf for the microwave and a few other odds and ends, along with a space at the bottom for a rubbish tin and that will leave me with all the bench space spare.

    There is already a fair bit of storage room for larger things like pots & pans, just none of the existing areas were much good for ingredients because you could never see what was what.

    LOL Peter, so where did you keep your food for the last 6 months? You whipped up some pretty amazing meals for someone with no pantry!

    I am not so talented, so was desperate for a reno after living with a 1960's kitchen for about 2 years.

    Here's my truly extreme kitchen renovation (done 100% by DH, he is AMAZING!). It's not quite finished, see if you can pick the missing bits! Having a child really puts the brakes on renovation plans.

    BEFORE ........................................................................... AFTER




    Since these pics were taken, we also tiled the backsplashes and installed a chrome rail across the bottom of the upper cabinets (see the 2nd set of pics). I have a shelf, papertowel holder, and cookbook holder hanging from that. As well as a few hooks for utensils and things. (So it's a bit more cluttered now!)

    My favourite things ... just about everything is in big deep drawers (even plates and bowls) ... and I *love* my German pull-out pantries (on the other side of the fridge).

    One day I will take a pic of my anal-retentively organised Tupperware containers for my dry goods!

    Looks good Gingernut. For the past six months I had everything scattered around a spare room in cardboard boxes icon_redface.gif.

    Gingernut, your new kitchen looks amazing. Almost like extreme makeover! I don't know what you mean about missing bits, it looks great. Pull out pantries are the best, I can't wait for mine to go in, am jealous that yours are up and running and being used:)

    Peter, I know what you mean about the cupboards. Ours were a mess, and then the bug infestation came (and 3 rubbish bags full of gourmet ingredients later - where the hell did I fit it all) so now everything is in square plastic containers stacked in the cupboard. It looks like a psycho neat freak has inhabited my house.

    There's nothing like a work in progress aye.

    Ok, here's the "Where's Wally's Missing Bits" answer key ...

    (1) architrave around the door
    (2) cornice around one upper cabinets, but not the other ones
    (3) cornice around top of exhaust fan (although ATM the whole chimney has been removed so is bare ducting ... not sure why DH removed it LOL)
    (4) dodgy yucky old windows ... getting replaced next month!!!
    (5) bare light globe and altogether crummy lighting (but you can't see that in the pic)
    (6) various skirting boards missing, which seems to attract creepy-crawlies!

    That's about it ... it's all stuff that I am sure most people don't notice but, like all our unfinished renovation jobs ... I am ALL TOO AWARE OF!

    Hi Peter, next time you are looking for a New Zealand tradesperson who will show up and do your job, check out http://builderscrack.co.nz. It is used by lots of tradesmen (and tradeswomen!) who are looking for work - I posted a job for a deck and got 3 replies in three days - one of the guys is building my deck now.

    Hopefully it will turn your icon_evil.gif into icon_biggrin.gif !

    I was at school most of the day for Amber's Easter parade and I came home to this icon_rolleyes.gif icon_confused.gif






    We hadn't expected it but the windows that we ordered yesterday and normally have a week turn around are being delivered tomorrow so there was a bit of a mad panic!

    That looks good Jewelies, tell Dave I said job well done and he can put his feet up now, have a few beers and enjoy the rest of the Easter break icon_wink.gif. I especially like the convenience of being able to easily serve food to the outdoor dining area icon_lol.gif.
