Time sure files when you're in school.  I owe all of you some recent photos of the new kitchen and laundry room.  We've come quite a long way since the last ones that I posted.  Anyway, we're at the point now where we need to finalize the appliance selection so that we can finalize the cabinets, trim, etc.  So I got to do my favorite part of renovation.... shopping.  This time I was looking for a fridge and stove.  I happened across a scratch and dent sale and picked up both for what I had been expecting to pay for just the fridge. . The idea here is skin the fridge so that it looks like an old ice box.  I've got some examples below that you can look at.   Since no one will ever see the dings, I don't care about them.  And our renovation budget is sooo much happier. .
