The cabinets and walls are painted. The laminate counters and knobs are attached. The stove/cook range delivered and placed.
The electrical work was the greatest expense, but very necessary. The kitchen needed three-pronged and grounded outlets. Our nephew, Josh put up the backsplash tile and it’s looking goood! Now we can get the electrical finished up.
Josh suggested tearing out the wood apron molding under the window. I really like how the tall faucet is now showcased. Glad we listened.
This past weekend we pulled up the linoleum in preparation for the laminate flooring. We had to scrape, and scrape, and scrape (get the picture?) glue off the plywood subfloor. We have the nicks and cuts to prove it. ;)
Annnnd, while we were tearing up the linoleum, why not detour and pull up the hallway wall-to-wall carpeting which was covering up hardwood floors?
Since the dining room, family room and hallway hardwood floors all abut the kitchen entrance; we figured that the new floor would look much nicer without the detraction of the wall-to-wall carpet. So out with the diamond black and white linoleum!
I am gathering receipts and hope to soon have a final reveal and the breakdown of expenses, savings and helpful tips. Thanks for visiting!
Have a good week! – - Joanne
