I like that song. I like the Carpenters. But this post is not about that song, nor about The Carpenters. It's about my kitchen and we've only just begun!
Since this is going to be a loooooooooooooooong process, I'm gonna share in stages. I don't think there will be one final reveal as I am just too darn excited to hold it all in as we go.
So here is our kitchen when we started. I decided not to clean up my kitchen when I took these - this is it in all it's glory as we were beginning the process.
The view from the sink:
The view from the eat-in area:
The eat-in area:
The laundry closet:
The door to the backyard:
The kitchen stove:
Aaaaaaaand here we go! Ripping up the vinyl:
That vinyl stunk!
And it was messy:
The bare floors:
Wowzers at the mess!
The eat-in area and the laundry closet:
The bare floor again … not sure what the deal is with that stain:
Late the same night that ripped out the vinyl and moved out the appliances I thought it best to go ahead and paint the laundry closet. I ♥ it! The color is Behr Fresh Water:
Oooooo ♥ this blue … it's 2 shades darker than the kitchen walls will be:
It's time for the tile to go in:
I must confess that I did not install the tile. It is done now and it looks LOVELY. I adore it. Alas it's time for bed and I have so much more to share! Tomorrow then …
