A Metamorphasis Coming . . . . maybe!

It's Metamorphosis Monday. Thank you Susan for hosting this terrific event. Somewhere to show people ideas who might just understand! So everyone go to BNOTP to see the participants. Just click this:

See this kitchen? It's not mine!! This is sort of the idea I have for mine. Below this picture are photos of my kitchen now. Don't get scared, it's not a pretty site.

I hope there's a metamorphasis coming here! I have been pretty careful not to show any photos of my kitchen. It is not good. It doesn't go with my 1850 house at all. I have had a contractor out that I want to use and I've had the first meeting with the kitchen designer. I just want the kitchen to look like it goes in my century farm house! I have lots of expensive ideas so I hope I can pull this off. Everything needs changed from floor to ceiling; from cabinets to lighting. Oh My. Gives me palpitations just thinking of it.

My lovely refrigerator loaded inside and out!! And that's the door to my little kitchen porch.

This is the island with a little sink and my dishwasher. You can also see part of the half wall that looks into the family room.
Now, that's all you get to see of the old kitchen. I don't know when (or if) this will all get started but The kitchen designer has some great ideas so we'll see. (If I don't chicken out!)
If I go ahead with this renovation, I will take lots of photos! I want to be one of the ones with the sledge hammer like on HGTV!!


  1. What a fun thing. I love remodeling things and giving them a twist of your own personality.
    I hope you will come by for a visit.
    Its So Very Cheri

  2. Isn't it so much fun to dream of how you want your home to look? What an exciting prospect to pull your dreams together and begin the process of transformation!! :o)

  3. Imagine your day in the kitchen from morning til night. Where you make your tea, where you knead bread dough all the steps you take in a day in the kitchen. This will help you think about what you need and where you need it. I recommend drawers for as much as possible, pots, pans, spices, plastic wrap and foil...drawers, drawers and more drawers. What fun. I can't wait to see the pictures. Oh by the way if you end up with a stainless steel fridge know that magnets won't stick to it so there won't be anything posted on your fridge.

  4. I'm not sure why people put new kitchens in old houses (because they a few years later they look so dated) -- I'm sure your excited to get started. I wish I could go down to studs and start all over again and plan my kitchen but alas, we've had to make do and we took our 1985 kitchen and made it have the "feel" of a 1920 one.

    You'll have to keep us advised!

  5. Shirley, I like the directions you're going in with your kitchen. I can't wait to see photos when it's done!


  6. Hi Shirley. The kitchen in your inspiration photo is, indeed, a beautiful kitchen. I'd take it in a heartbeat! Your kitchen looks like it has good bones. I understand your trepidation in starting the remodel. My husband has been wanting to re-do our kitchen for several years but I keep dragging my feet because, even though it's worth it in the end, the "during" stage is almost enough to drive me much mess and disorder.

  7. I can't wait to see the photos of the new kitchen. I went through a kitchen remodel last year. It took longer and cost more, but it was so worth it.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog on Rooster Day and leaving such a nice comment. I hope you'll come back soon. I'll stop back again to see your kitchen progress. I hope you do it and that it all goes well for you. I'll be having my 100th post Giveaway soon, so check in often.
