Yesterday was a long day - a very long day - thankfully the kids cooperated and we ended up with 12 hours, which is exactly what we need to finish section 4 of our kitchen, the floor!!!
To give this all some perspective, lets look back to 2 months ago at some of the before pictures:
If you missed sections one, two and three - feel free to go back and check them out.
I don't quite have a step by step on this, but one of the things I did document was the removal of this stupid rail... seriously, what is this for? To keep people from "falling" from the kitchen to the family room where, oh by the way, there is no drop?
With this gone - I'm hoping to put a desk for the kids to do their homework at - once the kids are old enough to have homework anyway...
Just a few (12) hours later here is what our kitchen looks like now:
We are THRILLED - I cannot believe that a day and less than $300 in laminate flooring from Ikea has made this kind of transformation.
Next up, repairing the back splash, painting the back splash and other areas blue, putting back in the molding and touching up a few things!
I love my kitchen.
