before and after kitchen

one of the agreements shad and i came to before we put in an offer on the house, was that i got to paint the cabinets white.  (we had a few more....shutters would come down, paint the walls a lighter color and get chickens....we're still working on the chickens)

some people really like the "before" kitchen better....and most men thought it was an out right sin to paint over solid cherry cabinets.  but i love the white.
so we took off the upper/upper cabinets and i wall-papered the back, we painted the cabinets and pantry door, replaced the hardware and switched out the ovens for the ones in my old house.
