No...it is not my kitchen but my sister in law, Lanier's kitchen. Lee and Lanier live in Memphis, Tennessee and their new family room and kitchen remodel is featured in today's Memphis Commercial Appeal, the local newspaper. Lanier shared some photos of her new kitchen with me and I am sharing them with you.
Lee and Lanier have lived in their big mid century modern home for about five years. It is a nice roomy house on an acre of land which is unusual in a city. Like most homes built in that era, the rooms were separate...family room, breakfast room, kitchen and laundry room were all small and rather dark.Lanier had a vision to open the spaces up to make it more modern and more usable. Lee and Lanier have five adult children, four are married and have given them eleven grandchildren under the age of five! So their house sees a lot of action. Between entertaining family and friends, the tiny old kitchen was just not cutting it for the Grimms. The remodel was long, about nine months but the results were worth the wait!
