Goodbye Mellow Yellow, Part 5

Are you thinking, "how can this kitchen renovation have five parts? Yes. Me too. We do have new hardware on the cabinets though and we installed it ourselves!

Thanks to Lowes and a really good friend in Kansas City who sent me a 10% coupon so I could save some real money on these beauties.

Goodbye Mellow Yellow, Part 4

As previously mentioned, we are STILL working away at the kitchen. When we first started the kitchen, I hadn't thought about when we would replace the floor. Though, with everything starting to look pretty sweet, the floor had to go. Below is a close up of the floor (and a cute, mischievous baby #tbt).

Goodbye Mellow Yellow, Part 3

It's already mid-July? How did that happen? Of course we are still plugging along on the kitchen remodel. I think this marks two months without an oven/stove and a mudroom since our fridge takes up most of it. But, who's counting? By the end of May, Jesus had finished painting and we had our new Schoolhouse Electric Lights installed.

Here's a close-up of the over-the-sink light. Since this picture was taken, we've exchanged the bulb with an Edison bulb. It's not as bright, but it's more period-appropriate.

 Here are a few side by side shots of before and after painting. What a difference!

Next post will be all about the floors and there is some drama involved!
