Our second week was more of the same which was working on the kitchen and painting and wallpapering. I am happy to report, it is 99.9% done at this point and we are quite happy with it.
For about $100, the kitchen looks like a whole new room. Some before pictures:
Doesn't look too bad does it? And it wasn't horrible, it was just so dark and the space was small as it is. The cabinets are the cheapest laminate that we've ever seen in a house, and they attracted grease something fierce apparently. That added to the dingy feeling/look of the space. The entire space just felt blah to me. Now it feels bright and clean and I love being in there to cook.
By the way, it is so much easier to get good pictures of a tiny kitchen when there isn't a fridge in there.
In other news, we are still removing staples and painting the floor.
