Now We’re Cooking! Kitchen COMPLETE! Kind of…

Cover for kitchen

So for those who have been following our crazy journey or for those who have come here for the first time out of curiosity, Thank you!   So let’s cut to the chase.

 Do you remember THIS? IMG_0478

How about this?IMG_0479

And This?IMG_0477Let us all grimace as we remember this HORROR!IMG_0568I may have even cried a little.

So we did THIS.

Threw out everything AND the KITCHEN SINK.
Our little, BIG helpers


After discovering the MOLD, we had to adjust a lot of our plans and be more drastic with our renovation.  Which called for new insulation and sheet rock.  Glad he’s handy like that.
Not FUN! Even though it looks it.
House-edit kitchen
Coming together!

In the meantime, have to cook some where.  The living room will work.

Don’t we all have a picture of a child under a sink with us?
Can lights. Brighter feels Cleaner. 

Prepping, Priming, Sanding and Painting the kitchen cabinet doors.  Soooo many steps. I’m glad he is so patient because I was ready for this stage to be over with.  He is the yin to my yang.

Floating shelves.  This wasn’t an easy project.   But he did a great job as U.S.U.A.L.floating shelves

So here it is folks.  I wish that this blog post could have a drum roll or dramatic music.  So just imagine it for me.  We have been in this house for a little over a year now.  We have lived with out a kitchen for that long.  Yes,  I eventually got a dishwasher, a sink, a stove, oven and microwave.  Our cabinets were raw and open to the public eye.  We had dull lighting and walls that needed to be finished out.  I didn’t mind the spills of the children onto our ugly concrete floors (after the tile had been scraped out and removed) because it was just like dropping food on the sidewalk. BUT NOW!!!  :>)



Almost done!! Just need to get the remaining floor into our dining nook and we will feel a little more normal again…a little…because I don’t think we really are all that normal to begin with :>)
