Start to finish....just some fun pics from our journey. I could spend a year telling you all how I did everything, but I won't! If you have questions about a certain task just ask! I will be happy to let you know how we did what!!
The 80's ugliness....say bye, bye!
My honey, hard at work...cutting out the bead board.
Oh, what a dusty mess! Sanding down all the cupboards and cleaning them all out!
I really did help in this process!
Painting the inside of these things SUCK!
Thank goodness for paint guns! We masked off the kitchen and Mike went to town.
Two coats of primer and two coats of antique white paint!
Oh So Pretty!
The tile! This job was MASSIVE! We didn't just do the kitchen, but down the hallway and the entry way too. I think at this point, Mike wanted to quit and go back to Iraq. Tiling is hard work and THANKS to Mike C and Judd who came and helped. We couldn't have done it without you both!
Now, after this tiling job I PROMISE I helped Mike GROUT. IT. ALL.
Glazing! Who ever knew you had to make something so UGLY to make it look so PRETTY? I felt like I was destroying all the hard work when I was putting this glaze on top of the pretty white cabinets.
But, it was all worth it because this is what I have now!!!
