Kitchen Remodeling

Here's the before and after of the kitchen (minus the countertops)

Last week we both took off work to rip out and install the new kitchen. I have never, I repeat, I have NEVER worked so hard in my life. Well, maybe, well yes, but you get the point right? We started last Friday and were basically finished everything by Wednesday. All we're waiting for now are the countertops to be installed in a few weeks. I learned a ton, got to play with rad power tools, and even have a few "battle wounds" to show off our hard work. ;)

Since we were finished with the big project, Scott surprised me with us ripping out the carpets in the entire upstairs. This was awesome!!! The previous owners of the house had cats, and no offense to cat lovers, but I am allergic to them unfortunately. The best part besides ripping out the carpet, was the underneath is GORGEOUS original hard wood floors!! I'm so excited. Wow, I must be getting old if carpet removal puts me on cloud nine. Haha. We're still working on the floors as far as restaining them, but boy does the house look amazing. I'm so grateful for my "handy-man" husband and all of our hard work.
