I have blogged about wanting to change my kitchen here and here. So this is a dream come true for me. I have a way of smothering a project like this and it has consumed my last couple of months. I am so nervous with what I have picked and I hope it will all come together.
This is what my kitchen used to look like:
Good-bye oak cabinets, white tile, white appliances, blue and yellow accessories!
Good-bye oak as far as the eye can see:
Good-bye oak mantel and white tile surround!
Good-bye living room carpet:
Here is what Sam was doing on Saturday:
So I guess there is no turning back now.
Here are my kids watching him rip out the tile. I made them wear shades to protect their eyes in case of flying shrapnel.
Here is my family room presently with all of this extra furniture and wood in it:
Stay tuned for more pictures and updates. Sam is ripping out the tile and carpet and laying the hard wood floors himself. Heaven help us. The rest is being contracted out. So far, I have everything picked out except my granite for my counter tops. I am still stressing over that but hopefully it will be resolved soon!
