Kitchen in Chaos


Welcome to my Weekend!


Hubby and I spent Friday evening through Monday working pretty much non-stop on the Kitchen Makeover!

{ I am just letting you know that I know that the quality of these pictures stinks.
My excuse is that I am too tired from all of the work on the kitchen I've been doing to care much about it. Also, I rationalize that it will make our "AFTER" pictures that much more amazing!
Just love me anyway! }



We took out cabinets together, my best bud and me.
And let our kids fool around with the camera taking pictures!


Me with no makeup...yeah. awesome.
But I love my guy!


Removed backsplash to make way for painted walls, and then beautiful tile soon to follow.

Removed 1/2 of the counters,
replaced part of a vent pipe,
drywalled,
bought new paint,
detached sink...



Tonight the other 1/2 of countertop with integrated sink comes off
and the last couple lower cabinets go out!

Tomorrow:
sand, patch, sand, patch, sand those walls!


And guess what?!?!
Our new cabinets are getting installed starting on Friday!!!
Squeeee!!!
:)



Guess what else I'm totally excited about?



I'm going to the Relevant Conference this fall!
Check it out!

Off to take out a counter top now! :)



More fun stuff coming up this week, so y'all come on back, ya hear?!!

Squeal! You are just the cutest couple. :) I can't even imagine how neat your kitchen is going to look! I was thinking about going to Relevant too. PA isn't that far from VA, and it does sound like a neat conference. :)

You look great w/out make up. I could scare mice myself :).

I love a good remodeling project. I grew up with parents that tore out walls, built a huge back deck and finished a basement on their own. I look forward to trying my hand on my own house someday.

By the way, thanks for being brave and sharing that photo. You look completely tickled with your husband, and your joy is contagious. No makeup could do that justice.

It's going to be so much fun to see your new kitchen come to life. I'm so happy for you!

And I love the photo of you and your husband. Aren't y'all adorable? :)

Hope your week is progressing just as you'd hoped!
