Our kitchen, finally looking like a room!
February 14, 2008
We went out for lunch today, and came home to a yellow kitchen! I was so excited! This week the guys have finished the drywall, laid down the base on the floor, and today they painted the walls and ceiling. Meanwhile, Mike and I ordered our tiles for the floor and granite for the counters.
I’m losing track of the days. Wednesday, perhaps?
This is our living room, in complete disarray. The mess is killing me. Yes, we have a stove in the living room.
This morning Ally watched as Michael taped the walls for painting. You can see that they installed the baseboard for the tile floors yesterday.
Michael painted the ceiling in the dining room to make it match the kitchen. There used to be a weird seam in the ceiling between the two rooms.
Randy drilled holes in the ceiling for our new can lights. This is the new doorway that he framed and drywalled this week. The old doorway used to overlap with the refrigerator, which was not pretty.
We came home this afternoon to a painted kitchen!
And a painted dining room! I think they are going to paint the window trim tomorrow (white).
Here’s Randy, chatting with us about their handiwork.
Mike and I were excited about the progress!
Poor Ally has to stay in the basement while the guys are here. She sits at the top of the stairs all day and watches through the baby gate.
When the guys leave, Janie comes out of hiding to take a peek.
Tomorrow: they install CABINETS! Stay tuned for pictures! We finally are going to have things to look at in the kitchen!
