How fun Kathy Sue! We remodeled our kitchen about a year ago, and it seemed like it would never get done! But it was so worth it in the end. Yours will be gorgeous...looking forward to the pictures!!! Jane

We've been without a kitchen since the week before Thanksgiving. Good luck because it's not easy. Jo @ Let's Face the Music

I was where you are back in November. We had our stained wood cabinets painted inside and out so every bit had to go. It was a mess for a few weeks, but oh so worth it. They come back this Thursday to paint my family room bookcases and mantel. Here we go again! {much easier that kitchen tho}
I know you will love your new kitchen and I can't wait for the reveal.

Kathysue... can't wait to see your progress. We begin our renovation in the kitchen in another week. I'd rather be reading about it than actually doing it! Good luck!

Marty said...

This is such perfect timing for me. I need good instruction and ideas how to survive since we are in the planning stages for a partial kitchen remodel. You look so organized . . . an inspiration! Good luck and I'll be following your progress.
