Last check in on this project, we had just installed our new stainless countertops and backsplash tile, but still had to get rid of the wraparound, move some cabinets and build a wall to open up the kitchen. Here's a peek at how the progress went down since we left off:
We also replaced the...ummm....light...in the center of the kitchen ceiling. I have a hard time calling it a light because the fixture actually gives off very little light at all. And, it really isn't decorative either. We laughingly call it the scro-light because, well, it resembles a part of the male anatomy hanging up there. Take a look:
Everything should be wrapped up soon with the exception of the flooring, which will have to wait a bit since we plan to refinish the hardwood on the entire first floor, and we want to do this all in one shot. For now, the unfinished and yucky--yucky? Can you tell I'm a mom to a toddler?--spot will be covered by a mat since it's right in front of the sink. We're getting a lot closer to completion...woo hoo! I can't wait to come back and show you the before and after pics when we're done.
