Dave tearing out the cabinets...
...and the walls.
Painting the living room, dining room and hallway.
Drywalling in the new wall into the hallway. We spent the majority of the month of September with the kitchen like this!
Then Kyle's folks arrived for the rebuild!
Moving the lighting and starting to put the cabinets in!
Celebrating Kyle's birthday in our "living room"!
Gigi helping to install the flooring.
My Daddy helping with the flooring. Gigi loved hanging in her Ergo while we put the flooring down.
Even more cabinets!
And even more flooring.
Gigi spent a lot of time in her Pack 'n' Play!
Erika nearly finished with the flooring!!!
Appliances going in!
And a sink!
After Kyle's parents left we spent the last few weeks finishing up the kitchen. We hung shelves, put the hardware on, unpacked, hung the chandelier, put in the toe kicks and now we are done! The only thing we have left to do is to put in the tile backsplash which, after the job we just did, will be a fun weekend project!
So after lots of hard work and lots of pasta dinners... here is the after!!!
We just love it! It turned out perfectly. We couldn't have done without Dave and Erika! We can't wait to cook up lots of wonderful family meals in this kitchen. It is the heart of our home and we can't believe how beautifully it turned out!
