Kitchen Renovation Underway!
We're finally doing it!!! The kitchen. And in record time I have to say. With less than 6 hours of on the job time - new lighting has been installed, the cabinets have been raised and crown molding is in place!
This morning we are having the granite template created, and with any luck we'll have some gorgeous granite countertops come next Monday!
Here's what we started with:
Blah faux butcher block countertops, a hunter green sink, a backsplash accented with more hunter green tiles and those icky track lights.
Step #1: Lifting the cabinets
I was excited to find the fake butcher block laminate behind the ugly hunter green tile.
I mean, seriously?
Step #2: Down came the nasty track lights and up went the crown molding...crown molding makes everything better doesn't it?
Step #3: A new table and lights (new seating around the table coming soon)
Ooh I can just see it now shining in its white tile and stainless steel appliance sparkliness! The next step for us is tearing out the backsplash (to be done by Your Truly and the B man) while we wait for the granite to be installed.
