Anyone renovating in May/June?? Check in here!

14 years ago

I can't believe we are demo-ing our kitchen next week. I am so darn excited!!

For those of you renovating in May/June, please give an update on yourself so I can vicariously live through you!!!

As for us, we're renovating our original 24-year old kitchen that we've lived in for 3 years. We are completely gutting it, removing the "decorative" bulkheads, repositioning the island and putting in hardwood. Next steps for us:

- Demo happens next week

- Hardwood is laid in the kitchen

- All the hardwood on our entire main floor will be refinished and stained to match - a medium brown colour.

- Our granite slabs are on hold. The faucets and sinks just arrived from Quality Bath yesterday. Our appliances are delivered this Saturday.

- Cabinets are starting to get made TODAY.

- Meeting with our designer this Friday to choose white paint for perimeter cabs, and wood stain for island.

- Still to do: Choose hardware (we're going with simple chrome knobs). Choose window treatments and new furniture (kitchen table and chairs, bar stools).

Eeek...I can't believe it's finally happening!! I'm going to try and set up a web cam like another poster suggested so I can watch all the action from work.
