Galley? Check.

Three-and-half months after we started, our galley upgrades are finally complete.

We started by adding a tile backsplash behind the stove.

Next, we added black enamel drip pans to our stove (a 60-second installation, but amazing how a small change can make a big difference on a boat).

Then, we installed our new freezer (which took hours and had no effect on the appearance of the galley--pretty much the opposite of the drip pans).

After installing the freezer, we added a built-in garbage and a matching vent to keep the freezer area cool.

To keep the freezer area even cooler, we next installed a little exhaust fan by the vent.

Venting
Then, we replaced the old freezer lid with a removable chopping block (before pictures can be seen here).

Chopped
The chopping block is big enough to fit over the stove or between the existing counters to serve as extra counter space.

Freezer Basket
Better yet, when it is removed, we have better access to the contents of the freezer than before.

Finally, we came full circle by adding another tile backsplash--this time behind the sink.

Smart Tiles
Overall, our galley is more functional and attractive than before, and with the exception of the freezer, everything cost about $300 combined.

Now, the only thing left to do is decide on a new project.
