Kitchen In Progress

 We are in the midst of finishing our kitchen remodel, so my blog has been neglected the last few days.  As you can see below, my kitchen was stuck somewhere in the 1940's with pink speckled laminate counters and backsplash.  Last fall (mid October '08), I started removing the paint from the cabinetry and woodwork and uncovered some beautiful patina-ed pine.  We had many changes made before Christmas '08 (cupboards reconfigured with new doors, new sink, faucet, countertop, & bead-board installed), then put the kitchen on hold due to the holidays, kids coming home from college and life in general.  We got back on track in July when we finally pulled up the old linoleum to uncover 5 inch wide pine flooring in nice shape but dark and dingy. It has been a long process, but will be worth all the effort and $ we saved by doing most of the work ourselves.  The reveal should be the week after Thanksgiving, so stay tuned!



This has been my best friend during this renovation.
It's a bit on the pricey side, but it has no odor or nasty chemicals and works very well.
Most paint stores carry this or check out their website to find a store near you.
