Let the FUN Begin

This past weekend we actually started our Kitchen Remodel project. After several weeks of planning and purchasing of new things the actual work has begun.
Here is a picture of the kitchen before. Very dark and 70ish. I tried to spruce it up with some color a few years ago which satisfied me for a while but I always knew that I wanted to have the whole kitchen re-done.

Here is what we had after only a short time of Demo on Saturday morning.
Thank you to Paul, Mike and Megan for all of your help. We found out that it really does not take long to tear things apart but we are in for a few weeks of remodeling. This was not our first day of demo either.
You can see I was very excited with all the room I have in the kitchen with the cupboards gone.

Next week we will start the major demo and will be tearing down all of the sofit and this wall that you see where the stove and refrigerator were will also be gone.

After the demo was done, this is how I spent the majority of the rest of my weekend...
Painting!! (and a little drinking beer also)
I really don't mind all of the painting because I know that I am going to love the end result.
To all of you who voted on leaving the cabinets with the oak finish, I am sorry to say, I will be painting them. Trust me, you will love the end result.
I will keep you all posted with the progress.

Be careful that you don't dip your brush in the beer and slop it on the wall.

I'll help you paint... just call me. Good luck with the kitchen, when we did ours it was a long time until it was livable again but we went right down to the studs, walls and ceiling but it's my favorite place in the house.
