This is the last night in this house for this kitchen! We knew what was ahead of us when we bought the house, but I said "eh, at least the yellow wallpaper is cheery"
At any rate, here is the before!
I've spared you all the close ups of the sink (BLECH) that is falling through the counter.
We'll also have the laundry and foyer tiled. Don't know when the next photos will post, but I hope you all enjoy seeing the 70's go bye-bye! (BTW - LOVE the wine cooler we're having installed!)This message has been edited. Last edited by: junk collector,
Bye Bye! Can't wait to see your NEW kitchen and see the excitement in your posts!
Congrats, the DAY has arrived!
I can't wait to see your new kitchen. I'll give you some sympathy upfront as you begin the remodel process!
The wallpaper COULD have been worse. Can't wait to see it finished.
Grandchildren are God's gift to you for not killing your own!
We don't stop playing because we grow old...we grow old because we stop playing
You should see the original linoleum that we found under the dishwasher - can you imagine this with the wallpaper? What were they thinking????
gosh I remember that stuff I had it in a bathroom and kitchen in my first apartment .Never showed dirt. LOL
OH my ME TOO! I had that in an apartment somewhere in Massachusetts! Was great though like Sissy said, at least it was a nice color!
Demo and new kitcen, cant wait to see the progress, good luck!
The crew worked very fast yesterday - difficult work to get those cabs out - could not salvage anything either.
At any rate, a big empty blank slate...
looks better already...
Watching and chuckling and waiting for the day we can do ours! Gotta love these older places in their vintage unattractiveness. Makes the "after" so much more overwhelmingly awesome!
That was a lot of very yellow flowers! Can't wait to see changes.
JC, this is TOO funny!! Our first home in the early 80's as newlyweds had that identical wallpaper in our kitchen. Our floor was a patterned green pulled from the wallpaper. It WAS a cheerful kitchen Almost like you were in a meadow Hope your renovations are moving along as planned....keep us posted
I LOVE seeing the space with everything OUT. Makes the space open up! Erase the memories...
TIME for the NEW to enter! Exciting times for you!
Back 'then' the kitchens that allowed for a large table and chairs for breakfast and lunch was considered the all time best kitchen! Dining rooms were reserved for dinner and some used them for only special dinners like for the Holidays.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Mary Ruth,

I agree with Sophie...How exciting. They did a nice neat demo job...Can't wait to see pic's as the work goes along.
What is the estimated time-frame for your kitchen remodel?
I love to see other people's kitchen renovations. Looking forward to more photos!
Love to see your re-do pics. Fun to see the before and can't wait for your after.
You must be excited to see the progress each day.

Just popping in to say thanks for all the encouragement. It has been a challenge this week, that's for sure! Had to do a big cleanup in there this am. Drywall dust really bugs me...
Electrician and Plumber have been through, so the electric, gas, and water have been taken care of for now. New insulation added and sheetrock is up. Drywallers will finish this week, kitchen floor begins on Tuesday, and cabs should be installed starting Thursday.
Estimated completion date is last week of Nov - I think - so we'll be going elsewhere for T-day!
I'll keep you posted!This message has been edited. Last edited by: junk collector,
