Kitchen Remodel

We have lived in the same house for 28 years.  During that time we have done about 10 big and small remodels.  We've never remodel the kitchen, because I love my kitchen!  Well, I'm tired of digging for my pots and pans and not having enough  pantry room.  I love my wall paper, but my kids call it dated and even old!  LOL   My son-in-law will be doing the remodel, he is a builder and has done several of the other remodels.

In order to keep my "stuff" together, I started a "Smashbook".  I've put in some pictures - befores and some pictures and ideas from magazines.  Here are some pictures of the old kitchen.
Breakfast area and peeking into my laundry room - this will go away into my craft room - another semi-remodel.

My stove - yes, it is staying!  It is a 1901 gas Wedgewood with 6 burners, 2 ovens and a warming oven.  The oven temperature works perfectly.  I've had it for almost 30 years - and love how the gas cooks.  I also have a contemporary oven next to it -- I use both of them during large family get togethers.

Area above the breakfast table.  It will probably go away as we are thinking about raising the ceiling.

Here is my Smashbook.  My daughter Tara drew the cover.,

 Thanks for reading my long post.
