Default 80s Kitchen Update

Management removed dark green wall paper. What a difference in light in kitchen. That was a very BIG job for sure.

Had several base cabinets needing repair. Since countertops were to be replaced now was the time to pull them and replace particle board with real wood.

I have a fairly ugly kitchen. Back in the 80s, my father and a now late friend built custom cabinets out of oak. I need to get more pictures, but the kitchen is a mess.

I don't have before pics, but when we first moved in, the stove was against the same wall as the sink, there were no cabinets on the left wall-- but there was a wood stove for heating. My father and friend built the bookcase under the load-bearing beam and there are upper cabinets above all of the cabinets. The stove is now against an oak mini-wall on the peninsula (and the upper cabinets are double-sided). The angled cabinet on the upper right has turntable shelves. I was too lazy to draw the chairs in.

The potato bin was custom made by our late friend and is also made of oak. There is a pot rack collecting dust above it. The microwave sits where the original refrigerator was, but for some reason my mother didn't want it there. We have an upright freezer. We have two fridges because we never took out the old one when we moved in the new one and we use both (my brother pretty much has one fridge all to himself bc he eats more than everyone else & when we shared a fridge, he would steal my food and milk).

The curtain over the sink has since been ruined because my brother knocked over a bucket of paint, knocking the lid off and it sprayed everywhere and he just left it without cleaning it and I discovered the mess about 20 minutes later.

The original parquet floor was ruined by water damage and the paint.

Here is a rough sketch of the layout of my kitchen. It is not to scale and I probably messed up the proportions quite a bit. All of the gray objects are not built-in and can be moved. It's an awkward layout. I was too lazy to draw in chairs and small appliances as well as scratching posts, pet food dishes, trash cans, etc.


The color in the first few photos is washed out. Poor quality photo of the cabinet and trim over the window above the sink:


Cabinets and above range vent

Here is another shot of the cabinets with more reddish tint-- the real color is somewhere in between the faded ones and this color.


Here's the lower corner cabinet-- please excuse the mess


And the new microwave

It's our 3rd microwave. The first was a Montgomery Ward 3.0cu ft induction microwave that lasted 22 years. The 2nd one lasted not quite 10 years.
