Today we made major progress on the kitchen renovation at the house. Ben spent the morning taking the paneling above the cabinets out, removing the cabinets to the left of where the oven is currently, removing cabinet doors and drawers to prep for repainting all the cabinets and new doors, and removing some of the countertops. I am amazed by how much he accomplished in a few hours! Also, a few days ago he painted the ceiling fan hardware and stained the blades taking it from the 1970s to a 1940s schoolhouse look. $100 saved!
Keep in mind things are looking really scary right now, but it’s going to be so spacious and add so much value to our house when it’s all finished. I originally didn’t intend to go so far with removing the faux walls above the cabinets, but it totally changes the look of everything. I can’t wait to see it all finished! Tonight I was telling Ben I wish I could disappear for a month then come back and find it all finished.
Anyway, here’s the kitchen before:
On to the next steps!
