OK, here are the before and after photos from the kitchen.
The before ones first, obviously.
And the after photos.
As I mentioned in previous posts, the paint work still needs to be done, but as you can see there have been great improvements made to the appearance of the kitchen just from the work that has been done on it by the council guys (well, OK, contractors employed by the council). I'm not sure exactly when the paint work will get done - it might end up left until after Christmas - but when it does get done I will get new photos again and you can see the kitchen properly completed. But, for now, this is what the kitchen looks like.
