Yeah, well, we're not there yet. You might call this the halfway mark.
The hideous pink and blue tile floor is gone, and so is the seven-sided island with its incredibly ugly pink tile top. (Look here to see what we tore out.)
I love the beautiful new earth-tone floor and the deep drawers in our new island (which still needs to be painted to match the cabinets). But one thing we didn't realize was that when the granite people came in to make a template of our new counter tops, they had to remove the old ones ...
|This used to be my sink.|
In the meantime, my husband secured folding tables and wooden cutting boards over some of the cabinets. Isn't he clever?
The daughters are highly amused that they can now reach items in some of the drawers without actually opening the drawers. But then of course, they're not the ones carrying dishes downstairs to wash in the basement utility sink.
Oh, and did I mention the dryer broke this week? No laundry happening here until the new one is delivered, so we'll be smelling like the 19th century, too.
