As Chip and Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper say, “It’s demo day!”
Although, I can’t say I am as excited as they usually seem on the show. Since our counters are going to be installed tomorrow the old ones have to be removed. In order to get those out, the sink also has to be removed. Because we have old house plumbing and no water shut offs below the sink, this means all the water in the entire house will need to be off for 24 hours, or until we can get the new counters, sink and plumbing finished.
Since I can’t do the dishes, we are going to eat out of the house as much as possible until the water is back on.
We are also removing the back splash and the laminate tiling on the floors.
This place is going to look a lot worse before it looks better.
We have a confirmed 5 layers of wallpaper and tiles on the backsplash. I wonder how the kitchen looked when it was rocking the orange and yellow flowers?!
To think at some point it was in style to throw a piece of cheap sheet linoleum over heart pine wood floors!
We are hiring in the experts to finish the floor, since the condition of it is a little beyond our comfort level for DIY.
I can’t wait to see the final result!
