Before & After: MrsShilts’ Kitchen


Please excuse me while I brag about my new kitchen, I am in love. It’s so smart, everything fits so well, the appliances are ace, the worktops are massive, the slow closing drawers are very clever and the space saving cupboards are brilliant.

Here’s a photo of how it looked before and how it was when we went to bed last night..




Isn’t it ace?

I want to thank my hubby for all his hard work on this kitchen. He has grafted so incredibly hard ripping it out, knocking tiles off the walls, getting the walls back to the brickwork, cleaning up and moving 25 bags of rubble to 2 skips and finally yesterday painting the kitchen so it looks all nice and clean. I think he’ll be glad of the week away to Cyprus to totally chill out and prepare him for the new term at school. Who says Teachers get it easy in the school holidays? My hubby certainly doesn’t!

This weekend I’m on a cleaning mission. The oven needs a massive spruce up and I’m going to be armed with the cif (other brands are available!), window cleaning spray and vacuum to get the house looking fab again. House proud me, oh yes! {sig}
