right before our kitchen renovation started, we told leko we were so sorry that we would be closing his store by tearing it down, but that we were building him a new and improved store. after we took all of our stuff out of the kitchen, we took a bunch of photos for the "before" shots. leko walked up and opened the door to his cabinet to find it empty. ryan and i practically started crying because leko was so confused. i'm so glad i had my camera in hand already taking photos, because i got a "before" photo of him with his cabinet saying goodbye to his old small-appliance department.
leko didn't know what to do with himself after demo day when all of the cabinets were removed. the day the lower cabinets were installed, leko wasted no time going to check out his new corner cabinet as soon as the workers left for the day. we had to grab our phones to take a photo of him seeing his new cabinet for the very first time. he looked up at us and told us he approved. it was so cute!
listen, if you're still with me and still reading, thanks for not locking me up in a loony bin. i swear my cat holds a part-time job in the appliance department at a local store! here are a few other pictures we snapped during the renovation of leko checking out other parts of the kitchen for the first time. the first time he checked out an upper cabinet . . .
