It's Happening!

    I can hardly believe it, but we're finally renovating the kitchen! 

We'll be upgrading from this...

Kitchen Before

to something more like this...

or this...

After Kitchen 1

or this...

After Kitchen 2

Yippee!  We've hired all the people and I've cleaned out the cabinets so right now our dining room looks like this...

Dining During Kitchen Reno

(For real.  That's our real dining room.  Looks like an episode of Hoarders, huh?)

And the painters came to take all our cabinet doors, drawers, and pull-outs to their shop this morning for spraying (let's hope they bring them back!  Ha!).  So our kitchen now looks like this...

Kitchen During

I was pretty shocked that so much stuff could come out of our kitchen (especially since we eat out a lot), but I don't have to put it back for about a month and a half (first the painters, then the countertops (concrete!), and finally backsplash (subway tiles!) and new cooktop).  I'm already starting to realize just how much I eat in, though (and missing my microwave).  It's actually a little stressful having the kitchen torn up and people in and out.  I may or may not have gone down to the store and bought some cookie dough to eat....along with a bag of Pepperidge Farm cookies.

This is exciting. I feel your pain, we had our cabinets done last year. Then granite and now the tile. Amazing how much you use the stuff in your kitchen or how annoying it is to see mess everywhere.

Inpriratios is beautiful.bcannot wait to see your finished kitchen, good luck.

Thanks, y'all! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Even though, yes, my house is a total mess - like every single room is catching the overflow of the kitchen. Maybe my goal for this weekend should be organization of the mess....
