With all the pressures of work, kids and everyday life, my husband and I recently realized that we needed a sanctuary to escape to every so often. We got together with my brother and sister and decided to collectively buy a mountain cottage to use as a vacation home. The place we got was a great deal, but also a real fixer-upper. In particular, the kitchen needed tons of work. The old cabinets must have been there for 50 years! My husband took matters into his own hands and replaced them quite easily using pre-made cabinets.
My husband wouldn’t let my sister and I into the house until their handiwork had been completed. When we finally saw the kitchen for the first time, we were delighted with the results. The room was fresh and new, but also maintained its vintage country feel, thanks to the classic pre-made cabinets. As we cooked our first family meal in the updated kitchen, we reveled in its convenience and comfort. Here’s looking forward to a lifetime of great family getaways in our renovated mountain home!
