Living in a mess

Well after wanting to tackle this project for quiet a while I finally dove in and decided to redo my kitchen. Not MAJOR renovations. Just new paint, countertops and flooring. Well you know how those things go. One thing leads to another. Hee, hee.
Okay so Spring Break week I start by stripping wallpaper and I repaint the kitchen.

Then this last weekend we have to tear the old flooring out to make way for the new flooring.

Well it didn't go so well, and we ended up having to take all the base cabinets out too (to repair the toe kicks that fell apart). Also, the old flooring went underneath the old cabinets so they really needed to be taken out to remove the old flooring. NOT what we had planned on doing at all.

Also, the countertops came in....problem is the one that the sink goes into was damaged. That means we had to reorder it. Fine, BUT we had to take the old sink out cause we had to get that cabinet out. So now I will be without a kitchen sink for 1 1/2 weeks while we wait for the new coutnertop to come in. UGH!!!

On the bright side, my new flooring is being put in today. Soooo, tonight all the rest of my cabinets, fridge and stove should be put back in place. (God willing!)

My husband HATES my projects. I always say.."But honey, I am ONLY gonna do ______." He says it NEVER turns out to be an only anything.

By the way...this is what my dining room looks like right now.

More pictures to come. :)
