Kitchen Renovation Update

We are in week 3 of our kitchen renovation, and we're finally getting to the fun part. 

The first couple of weeks consisted of demo (that's a fun part too!), and the not-so-glamorous electrical and plumbing work.

The electrical work involved replacing 8 million can lights with smaller, more strategically-placed recessed lights. They roughed in the electrical for the new sconces and chandelier.

A gas line had to be run, as we are switching from an electric to a gas range. Yay! Water lines were moved to accommodate a new sink that will be in the beverage center area.

When all of that was complete, new drywall had to be hung.

And, finally, the new cabinets could start moving in.

So much more still to be done, and my house is an absolute disaster area, but it's coming together. I'm off to make my final countertop selection. Wish me luck!

Have a great day!!

Kitchen Remodel Is Underway

Yesterday I got a text from a friend that read, "Blog, will ya???!?!!!!"

Sheesh. Some people are so pushy ;)

So here I am. And, I've got some kitchen progress to share.

On Monday morning, our kitchen looked like this...

And, by Wednesday night, it looked like this...

All of the cabinets were removed, and are going to live with a lovely couple that I met through craigslist. The couple lives on a farm, and brought us fresh eggs when they came to look at the cabinets. How nice was that? I think our cabs will be very happy in their new home.

The hardwoods were removed, and I've got plans to use them in another part of the house.

The kitchen looks so large and spacious that I almost hate to put anything back in it!

Are y'all on Instagram? I resisted for a long time (who has time for all this social media??). But, I'm using it more and more now, and I have to say it is very easy for me to snap pics and keep you updated on the kitchen remodel. So, if you want to follow along, you can find me HERE.

If you prefer Facebook, I generally link my Instagram photos there as well.

There's going to be lots happening around here over the next few weeks. I will try to share as much as I can. But, if you don't hear from me, feel free to send me a pushy message :)
