Our home was built in 1962, the people we purchased the home from lived in the house for 19 years. Let's just say, they were comfortable in the home. There were a handful of updates in the house, but the kitchen was seriously in need of some freshening up. Our last home was built in 1959, but had a completely redone kitchen. I can tell you, I've missed my old kitchen a lot.
Our goal is to do a major tear out of the kitchen within two years, which also means some walls coming down. The kitchen will have to be totally gutted. In the mean time, we've decided to make a small investment in updating what we saw as crucial needs in the kitchen. For now, we've torn out the old backsplash, countertop, and sink.
Here we go!
Tile demolition is FUN! There's even video footage.
HERE IT IS!!! The tile grouted, paint done, appliances back. I love it.
Just a detail shot.
A huge thanks to my father for helping me with this project and nana for keeping the girls busy, when we were in the thick of it. I also had help from a family friend that put in new pipes under the sink. I learned a lot with this project and feel even more confident when it comes to tiling.
Overall, it feels like a huge success. I am loving it!
