Today is the day. After a couple months of planning, we are finally starting our big kitchen remodeling project. No, we aren't attempting to do it ourselves. Trust me, that would NOT be a pretty sight. Our kitchen was remodeled about 20 years ago with cheaply made veneer-covered particle board cabinets, 70's style Formica countertops, and a cheap linoleum floor that attracts and locks in dirt. The veneer is peeling off, the drawers and cabinets are broken, and the mottled floor is way beyond cleaning or repair. And don't even get me started on the broken light fixtures, green mini blinds and chipping paint. Yes, it's definitely time for a makeover.
This is what our kitchen looked like this morning:
I couldn't bear to watch, so I stayed in the other room with the door closed while that nice man did unspeakable things to our cabinets and counters. After lots of hammering and loud noises, our cabinets and counters went POOF! All gone! Then that nice man hauled them away in the back of his van. This is what our kitchen looks like right now:
Wish us luck with the rest of our renovation project!!!
