Kitchen Demolition Has Started

Hello Everyone!

Just thought I'd jump in this morning to show the start of the demolition. Yesterday, a friend came over and we emptied out the rest of my kitchen cabinets. Last night, the take-out crew arrived. Here are a few pics from the removal process.  They were going just lickety-split and I had to rush to get in some picture taking. Hence, not the best quality on some of these pictures.
Empty cabinets ready for removal.

Hubby started working on unhooking the sink, garbage disposal, dish washer, etc.

Cabinet man arrived. (Our nephew)
 Have to interject a funny here. When Brian walked in the door, he announced, in a different voice, that we had been selected to have our kitchen featured in the newest home magazine and that he was here to take pictures. Ha Ha! I told him that I thought we had been selected for an Extreme Make-over and that is why he was here!
His wife helped with removing drawer glides and hardware.

Everyone helping to haul them out.

Had to catch this one behind the stove.  This shows that my kitchen has been painted 3 times. First white, then a pale yellow and then the moss green color. Today, I am adding the 4th color. Yay!

All gone!
 A person can sure hide a lot of stuff in cabinets. I really do use most of this but I look at it and wonder, "Do I really?"
Kitchen stuff to living room.

It's a good thing this is coming together in a weekend or so.  I would go nuts with all this stuff everywhere. Excuse me, not go; already am going nuts! Ahh, but the reward at the end will be worth it!
Well, that is it for now. Time to go find my painting supplies and get busy! I'll keep ya posted as the adventure continues. So until next time...

Have a blessed day,

  1. I know how stressful overhauls can be. In fact, I usually put off a project because I know it will be a mess. I know if will look fabulous when it is done.
