Kitchen Cabinets

An update on my kitchen.  I finally got the cabinets painted gray back in May!  I can't get the hang of the "roll over the picture to change it" deal so here are just stand alone then/now images.
In progress....
Not all doors had to come off.
Finished and back together...
I changed up the art work to hang a new print.

 and added a new chair.

Then ... before we moved in ...
Now ... new fridge.
Then ovens.
 And an alternate table arrangement.

I have my winter look of rugs (with foam insulation underneath) on the window ledge to cut the draft.  We tried to insulate but it was impossible.  This helps some.
I love my kitchen.  (Wood floors would be the next upgrade.)
