We have lived in our home over 20 years.
Some of the appliances were here when we moved in.
Life expectancy for an appliance is about 15 years,
so I guess we got our money's worth.
The fan in the range hood was the first to expire.
We were getting along just fine,
as we empty nesters don't fry many foods.
But then, our microwave started shooting sparks...
This led to an evaluation of our whole situation.
One of the burners on the range was slow,
and our dishwasher did not get things clean like it should.
So hubby and I went shopping for the whole package.
This was also our opportunity to create
the tile backsplash that I always dreamed of.
I cannot tell a lie.
I am not in love yet.
I want my old range back!
I do love Cuisinart small appliances...
Electric grater, food processor, blender,
and coffee pot!
Did you notice that I got a new utensil crock?
Thank you, Martha Stewart.
By the way, here is our new dishwasher.
It is so quiet that I don't even have to
turn up the volume on the television!
My blog is usually my "happy place"
however, I do have some #frigidairefrustrations.
But, I am going to overlook them for now,
to show you the finished kitchen project.
Thank you for stopping by.
