Well, we are half way through our kitchen/dining room project....and we are doing well. We are feeling excited that after a week and a half of mess, we are seeing our dining room come together, and the kitchen is on its way. Here are a few pictures of the process. I will post the the "after" pictures when we're all done.
We pulled everything out of the dining room and kitchen and it is now in the family room.
Do you want to come over for a cup of tea? I think I can find the teapot in here somewhere.
Steve took out the the cabinet and hood over the stove.
He got that old blue tile off of the wall. You can see the tiles on the left of the pass-through window are off and first 3 tiles on the right are off.
Next; Steve closed in the pass-through window....
and began smoothing out the sheet rock that was a bit of a mess where the tile had been. He then re-textured the kitchen and the one dining room wall.
Dining room side with first tape and texture... Steve applied several applications of the texture, first to feather and smooth the hole to look like the rest of the wall; then he added texture to match the rest of the walls.
It looks better already, just getting rid of the light blue.
There was a skinny cabinet here that came down lower than the cabinet that remains. Steve took it down and is going to cut it down to match the cabinet bottom of this cabinet.
Some of you wished me "chocolate to ease the strain" in your last comments.... Thank you for those "sweet" sentiments.....those were my thoughts exactly. I made a batch of these and mmmmm they were good. They are pretty healthy as far as sweets go. Do you want the recipe? You can make them in about 5 minutes. I got it off of Pinterest. Click here.
Stay tuned for the last installment of the "Kitchen Makeover" Series.
