Kitchen

While M was out of town, I wanted to surprise him by finishing the kitchen. It was A LOT of work and add four kids to the mix was just straight crazy. My sweet  friend Julie came over a couple of nights (her hub even came over to change out/update all outlets and switches) and then my mom came over Saturday to help with touch up/hang cabinet doors/clean up.  HUGE thank you to them!
Me doing DIY is total comedy. I make the silliest mistakes. Measure twice and have someone else cut, is my new motto.

So here are a couple before/after pics (I’ll save the whole room reveal until  the countertops  and the flooring are replaced).

The wallpaper was so hideous!!!

Even though I tore it all down there were spots – like where the seams were, that stained the drywall — took 5 coats of primer to finally stop it from bleeding through!

I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this, glad its *mostly* done!
