Day One of Kitchen Remodel

Not much to see yet except a bare kitchen, but here's a "before" picture that will show the changes. Demolition begins today!

How can a person generate so many orphan tupperware lids? They got recycled.

Note the shallow sink, the short, shallow and stained counter tops, pitted floor and window (oops, you can't see it but it's there) that is held open with a small wooden spoon.

Let the games begin!


  1. Oh, gosh! You are going to be soooo happy with your new kitchen!! It will make a world of difference to your house. Heck, to your LIFE!

    Okay, so maybe I'm seeming a little over-the-top. But that's the way I feel (still) every time I walk into/through my "new" kitchen.

    As you say, let the games begin!

  2. I've been browsing the internet for inspiration and ideas to start my own kitchen remodel. I already have my table picked out and I plan to go look at ovens tomorrow. What is the most durable and cost-effective counter top material, in your opinion?

    1. James, I'm sorry I didn't reply to your comment before now. It seemed to me that every material for counter tops had its pros and cons, and it depended on what one wanted in order to make a decision. I thought the information on was helpful, but you could google "counter top comparisons" and get a rundown of the info.

      If I had unlimited resources, I'd get recycled glass countertops from Vetrazzo. But it was out of my price range by quite a bit. :-)


Hi, sorry to make the humans do an extra step.
