Nice remodel, Daniel. Thanks for sharing.

Your kitchen looks great, Daniel.  And the fact that you did it all yourself is most commendable.  Your formerly "dark and dingy" corner has become a visual highlight.  Nice job!

Nice looking kitchen.  I like how bright that corner is now.

Daniel, your kitchen looks fantastic! I could do some serious canning with that setup. And, your freezer jam looks delectable. Never made plum jam. You've got one on me!

This was the last major item for our kitchen remodel.  I kept the old cabinet to use as a pantry.  Originally I wanted to paint it white.  Once the primer was on, the white stood out too much.  This is how I painted it in the end. 

Very happy.  Easy to find stuff.  Easy to keep clean and organized.  Before refinishing, this cabinet and corner was so dark and dingy, depressing and dirty.  It was hard to find stuff.  I thought about replacing the cabinet, but this was a lot less costly and I think I like it more.  More new stuff would have been too much of a good thing.

You can see in the background, the dining room is next - and last.  The kitchen still needs window trim, floor trim, one new light fixture, and when I have the energy, a solar tube.  But I am out of energy now and it's time to rest.

I'm really bad about trim.  It took me a few months to finish trim in living room and study, after everything else was done.  I don't know why I'm so bad at that.

The freezer jam came out very nice.  Plum was perfect, fig a little too sweet, and peach didn't gel like I hoped.  Maybe it will after chilling.  The plum was Shiro, a very juicy Asian plum, already so sweet I cut the sugar back by 2/3 and it was still sweet.

The quesadilla was good. Sweet corn and asparagus on the side. I thought I had freezer salsa, but couldn't find it. I made do.

Canning is time consuming, but the winter payoff is great.

When I retire, maybe I will try canning.  I have mason jars in the dishwasher right now, for the freezer jam.  Which seems easy, when I watch the videos.
