Wow.....I hadn't realized it's been so long since I posted. Been busy with remodel stuff. I finally let the man have his way & he took out the closet in the Living Room. Well the only part that was actually in the Living Room is the door the closet itself was actually in the Kitchen...yeah that's right in my tiny Kitchen |:(
So now my Kitchen is bigger which is nice but on the downside that means....... you guessed it more work & another trip to Lowe's. Drywall time! Thankfully my nephew has much experience with drywall since his dad hangs drywall for a living & he spent many a summer working with him growing up. Once the drywall is up I can hopefully finish up the Kitchen remodel. I have painted the cabinets in there so far & I have to say the change is remarkable. I don't feel like I'm in a dungeon anymore when I'm in there! Here are some before & after pics for ya:
don't get me wrong I think wood cabinets are pretty but not in a small kitchen - it just makes it too dark in there (btw those cabinets were darker in real life). So white cabinets & pale sunny yellow for the walls & ceiling. Can't wait until I can post some full room pics after all the painting is done & new floor is installed.
