Today is a very exciting day.
Today, we tore the last pieces of laminate from behind the sink and pulled out the nails that attached the last bits of that awful backsplash to the wall.
Then the new counters went in. They’re a dark laminate and already the kitchen looks better. On Friday the walls will be repaired and by Saturday the plumbing should be installed, with a new sink and new faucet.
Then we can start to tile the wall, to paint the other walls, and eventually, come spring, sand, prime and paint the cabinets, replacing the hardware and outfitting it with trim.
We’re on the upswing. Huzzah!
