This is what Hubs and I have spent spring break doing...maybe we can classify this as spring cleaning? This project has waited three long years to be started. If you are bored, check out our kitchen renovation project

Where we started:
















We are (and by we, I really mean hubs is) building a new island today. Then we can finally move our appliances out of my living room, yay!!

I'll post the last couple pictures later tonight after we (hopefully) finish up this LONG four day project.


UPDATED


We have to stop for now because hubs is leaving at 4 am to head out of town for a week or two, but here is how far we have gotten:













All that is left is the backsplash, counters, finish the island, and to paint the lower cabinets/island that distressed black color sort of like our hutch. Not too bad for 4.5 days!! I am EXHAUSTED, but happy

Yes, he builds everything from restaurants to H&R Blocks to Hair Salons/Spas. He is a project manager, but still gets to swing hammers from time to time. He's been doing this stuff since he was 7 though. He's a country boy All his jobs are up north so he is gone Monday-Saturday We actually got a week off because of how many hours he has been putting in so instead of resting like normal people, we decided to do the kitchen

Looks fantastic! And that taking tile out is a HUGE job - my dh does stuff like that too (though not for a living), and last time we took out tile it took 3 days by itself. (Of course, the idiot who put it down did it WRONG so that may've had something to do with it.... For one thing, they used grout instead of .. well, whatever it is you're supposed to use to hold it to the floor. Hubby was ticked.)


Anyway, can't wait to see final pics! And grats!!!

Oh no! With grout instead of mortar? Yikes! Doesn't sound fun! Our tile was so bad it only took an HOUR to get it all up!!! It shouldn't just take an hour....We have all the tile down and are getting ready to grout tonight. We fell behind so we are going to have to skip church tomorrow (I know, so bad) and build the island then. Hubs leaves to go out of town for a couple weeks on Monday so we HAVE to wrap this up!! I"ll post pics tomorrow! Thanks guys for all the kind words

It looks amazing so far! i can't wait to see the finished product! I bet you love having a handy hubby. One question...does he always finish his projects? Because if so you are for sure a lucky girl!!
