Kitchen Demolition

I managed to put off the real demo work for as long as possible so the kitchen would stay completely functional most of the time. It turned out to be 2 weeks of mayhem, with only 1 week without a kitchen sink. (you have no idea just how often you use your kitchen sink until it's gone!)

This is what the kitchen looked like in the middle of the tear-out.

Here you see the lovely pink and green two-tone that must have been the original wall colors, as well as the most recent country-style wall paper.

Not much left here. The dishwasher is one of the few things staying.

We've actually turned the corner in this pic. The ceiling is painted its final color: Devine "Icing", the walls have a skim coat of plaster and their final color (at least the parts that won't be behind cabinets or backsplash): Devine "Butter" and I've installed the nailers for the crown moulding.


  1. I love the new cabinets and honeycomb tile, Great job

  2. You sure have turned your kitchen around. Im impressed to say the least!
