One of the biggest transformations though, has been the kitchen. We aren't changing the footprint so much, but everything this else is getting a facelift.
Here's a sneak peek at what we've done so far.
As a reminder, here's what the kitchen looked like when we had our inspection.
So, what have we done? Well, wall paper is gone, beams are gone, light fixtures have been replaced with can lights (LOVE!), and the cabinets on the far end have been removed. We are planning on putting in a pantry of some sort on that end and probably a counter or table to eat breakfast at.
This past weekend, Sparky (aka, my electrician husband) popped all of the decorative stuff off the front of the cupboard doors. They were glued on and he used a wonder bar (not to be confused with a wonder BRA), and hammer and they popped right off. Then, he filled them with some putty and sanded them a couple of times. They are pretty much ready for a new coat of white paint!
He also broke out the saws-all and cut off the little fence thing (so, technical...I know, but that's what it looked like to me). Such a big difference! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! It doesn't even look like the same place. Even with just primer on the walls.
I can't wait to get the lovely gray paint we picked out on the walls and the new tile floor down!
