    Kitchen Remodel - Finally Done!

    Finally finished the kitchen remodel! Been poking along with the cabinet rebuild/refinish, but once that was finished a couple months ago we began working on it in earnest.

    Had a contractor remove the wallpaper (What a mess!) and paint the walls. New granite countertops were professionally fabricated and installed.

    Hardest job was tearing up the old ceramic tiles - used a mini-jackhammer for that - and removing the severely gouged underlayment under them. Installing the new floor only took a couple days after that. Add another day to trim it out, and we finished yesterday - just in time for the holidays!

    No more big home projects until Spring now, when we start on replacing & enlarging the back deck...

    Unfortunately, no. I should have taken some, I guess, just to show the transformation.

    Think 20 year old yellowish formica counters; Cabinet doors with finish worn down to bare wood around the knobs; loose drawer fronts; and worn out drawer slides. Floor was ceramic tiles, over plywood underlayment, poorly installed, with many cracked tiles. Walls were covered in a textured wallpaper that we never did think was clean, no matter how much we'd scrubbed it.

    All-in-all we kept and repaired/refinished the cabinets, but replaced everything else.

    BTW, this was the fourth kitchen we've redone over the past thirty years, and I sure hope I don't have to do another one.

    That's ok, the description of the old one was enough.

    I'm sure this got you out of the dog house and off the naughty list for sure.

    I still have to finish the fire place/entertainment center before Christmas or I'm getting coal.
