The Old is made New!

Over the past year I have seen how much a home can change.
It is amazing what can happen with a little determination and a whole lot of hard work.
Only a year ago this is what our kitchen area looked like.
It was a make shift sleep area.
We came on our days off and worked.
After much blood, sweat, tears, bruises, aches and time.

Here it is today.......

The transformation is amazing (to me)....

I love the open shelves over the sink area.
Notice my basket collection......

The cooking area........... 
It was difficult to get a good angle for the corner shelves in just one shot.....

So I took two........
I love cookbooks.

I love my pantry area.
More baskets....
of course!!!!

I hope you noticed the island in all the pics.
My sweet hubby made the butcher block top for me.
It is one of my favorite things in the kitchen.
We did all the work ourselves.
Just hubby and me.
It was worth it all.
I hope you enjoy!



Just a thought......
The transformation that has happen here in our "old-new" home
reminds me of the transformation that happens in the
life of one willing to surrender to our Creator God.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone,
the new has come!

Now that is truly amazing!
