Let the transformation, BEGIN!!

Don started demo and transforming our kitchen last night. Here is a before and two process pictures. I really didn't like the knotty pine paneling. I guess it is a shame, because it is coming back in style. Just not my style. Don took them off and now is in the process of dry walling, I wish Becky was her. You can see a pocket door as well. We still haven't decided if we want to keep or get rid of it. By the time we are done with phase one of the kitchen this corner will have been sheet rocked (is that the right terminology?) and have the base cabinets and counter in. And of course painted and molding done. Phase two will be sometime next year, when we will spring for the wall cabinets (on this side of the kitchen). I won't even mention phase 3, phase 4, or phase 5. But I will say we want to complete phase 5 in the next five years. You should come see my kitchen then. Or next year you can come and see my corner and imagine the rest. I am just happy to have a corner to call mine and a husband willing to do the work. Cabinets and dishwasher arrive tomorrow. Oh yeah, did I mention he also has to install the dishwasher and disposal, GO HONEY!!!


  1. Oh wow! I'm so impressed, that is a ton of work.

  2. Good job, Don! It looks better already! I am with you--get rid of the paneling. What color are you going to paint your new kitchen wall(s)?
    These before and after pictures are so fun...keep them coming!

  3. I wish I was there too. It looks like some fun.
