Kitchen Remodel Part 3

And the kitchen remodeling continues. Things have been going fabulously and I really really hope that they continue on that way. This week CG took off work so we could do the base cabinets and finish up all the other fun stuff that you don't realize you need to do until just after you get home from the home improvement store.

Here are a few pictures to highlight what's been done since the last time I posted pictures highlighting what had been done.

Yet another kind of wallpaper has been discovered. We've also discovered that when the house was originally painted, 43 years ago, the wall was not prepped in any way before applying the paint. So it comes off. Yeah.
Here are a couple of pictures that Lolly took of Daddy and Papa Van (seriously!) working in the kitchen. Papa Van, my dad, has been helping us out a lot. Thanks Papa!
The wall cabinets are all up and the only thing left to do there is put on the handles. YAY!
And they installed the wall oven on Saturday. Yay!

Before
After--So Far

This week......everything else. So I'll be writing lots of riveting posts while my husband is slaving away in the kitchen. No worries. I'll throw snacks and bottles of water at him occasionally. My man is well taken care of.

Very nice cabinets! I am sure you'll love your new kitchen when it is all done. Good choice on cabinets. I agree that Ikea is a fun place to shop.

Personally, I find a man with tools in his hands working on a honey do project very sexy! Yay for almost being done!
