Happy SUNday! – a blast from the past

While searching through some older scans I was fortunate to find this image from around 1985. It’s a view of the first kitchen remodel I did in the first house we owned when we lived on Fleming Island, Florida. The house was built around 1976 and originally was as plain as could be.

From around 1985. Taken with my Canon F-1 with a Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens on Kodak Kodacolor film.

It wasn’t a fancy kitchen but it was well organized and very functional. The part of the kitchen pictured here was originally part of a divided and weird living room with lots of wasted space. The cabinets were basic unfinished birch veneer boxes that I was able to customize to suit our needs. We decided against upper cabinets along this wall in favor of glass open shelving (which is popular today). Our kitchen even featured a full-sized sliding glass door! I learned quite a bit from remodeling that house and when we sold it in early 1988 it sold to the first people that saw it. Now thirty-five years later we’re wrapping up another kitchen remodel in our current home on Amelia Island where we’ve lived since 1991. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
