Kitchen Renovation: Demolition

As you may have already heard, the sink is GONE! The menfolk took a moment to bid a final farewell to our big green friend.

There. That's better.

Somehow I'd convinced myself that we would not actually be inconvenienced by our kitchen re-model in any way. When our neighbor asked last week if we had set up a temporary kitchen (this would be Mr. Curious of course) we scoffed and told him we saw no need.

This is a minor kitchen re-model after all. No walls are moving, the cabinets are staying the same, the floor is already in place.

I clearly didn't think through the fact that getting a template made for the countertops and then having them actually installed a week later would require this:

Or that removing the backsplash would entail flying grout, broken tiles and lots of dust.

But in spite of the dust and serious lack of amenities - I'm thoroughly convinced it's looking better already.

If you want to see what we started with, check out this post:

  1. Looking good! Can't wait to see the finished product. And I would just take the time without a kitchen as a nice excuse not to cook for a week :)

  2. I agree with you it's looking much better:) Can't wait for the next post!

  3. How can I get that "antiqued backsplash" look in my kitchen...just to die for! :) Happy for you!
