This is what we're doing for Easter

Pulling out the lower kitchen cupboards, drawers and benchtops, to put in a new and more functional kitchen. My Dad has made the carcasses out of recycled packaging boards from his work, we've bought doors from Ikea, and Dad has made us a new benchtop out of an Aussie hardwood, that Andrew has varnished with a low VOC varnish. We hope to put in some green tiles shortly after, once the plumbing is all sorted. New floors and blinds for the window will come a bit later down the track, maybe a new light fitting too.
The stove/oven and hearth will stay as they are for now, we'll have built in cabinets made for a new stove and oven at a later date, and put some new tiles in.
This is how it looks as of last night.
I will post more pics as it progresses over the weekend.

Sounds great! All the best with your easter renovation, look forward to seeing the new kitchen, it is always rewarding doing it yourself.
