After months of going back and forth about installing a microwave above the stove or not we finally did it!!! We didn't want to spend $250 on an electrician so we asked around. We had one friend who said he could use a kitchen fork and get it done (not without a few zaps). So that was one option ;) Then during dinner one night our friend Daniel said he could do it. So we offered his wife Anna and him dinner one night to come and help us out! So they did!

This is the before shot. I fell in love with our house because of the beadboard in the kitchen :)
They started out by putting the electrical outlet in. Daniel and MR.P made this look easy...like it was no big deal. But if electricians charge $100-$250 to do this, then it must be somewhat difficult/dangerous to do.
So the guys just kept on working through! They put some of our extra beadboard up and installed the wall mount. That thing is no joke. The microwave is NOT coming down.
