Update: Before and After Kitchen Photos w/ Lowes Stainless Steel Appliances

The first thing we did when we moved in was upgrade the standard Black Appliances that we got from Ryan Homes.  We did not want to pay for them for 30 years in our mortgage plus we saved quite a bit by getting them on sale at Lowes.  We were blessed enough to sell the Stove and Dishwasher within 1 day of listing them on Facebook Fleamarket and Craigslist!  Sold the Stove for $325 and the Dishwasher for $260.

For now we have the kitchen table in the center of the kitchen where the island would normally go.  So the next big project will be to get the Gourmet Chef Island in the Kitchen.  This one may take some time but hoping to have it by the end of the year. 

I must admit, at first, I was worried that there would be no room for all the pots and pans and small appliances.  But there is ample space to fit EVERYTHING between the kitchen cabinets and the large pantry!  I love love love this kitchen!
