Oh, hey! By the way, we're finally doing the kitchen renovation!!
Remember our super ugly kitchen? A visitor once described it as a "period piece" from 1981. Totally.
breakfast at Tiffany's if Tiffany was a 65 year old in 1980
So yeah, we had the wood paneling, the ancient appliances, the brown patterned linoleum floor that perfectly camouflaged cheerios.
all your paneling are belong to us
In the middle of last week, they started to tear it out
bye bye brown cabinets
bye bye ancient stove
Also we took out the wall between the kitchen and the dining room
bye bye small pocket door our children used to close us into the loudest dining room ever
This week, the plumbers ran water to where the new fridge will be (hello 21st century!), the electricians wired electrical outlets up to code (hello fire safety!) and installed the hardware for recessed lights (goodbye 1970s lights!), and they put in the sub-floor (goodbye squeaks!).
We're on our way! And happily it's moving right along, as the dust from the construction is making me cough my little brains out.
