Operation Kitchen :)

Tomorrow marks the beginning of our kitchen makeover. We have been planning and thinking this over probably as long as we have lived in this house (2.5 yrs) but haven’t gotten around to getting it done. We have decided to go with an IKEA kitchen and have visited twice to design the layout. So this is the breakdown of hopefully just the to do list and not my sanity (with two kids and no kitchen) of how our kitchen is going to happen.

clear out kitchen
setup temporary kitchen
block off kitchen to the Babes
tear out cabinets, counters and floor
•jack up floor and insulate
•paint walls and ceiling
lay laminate
•assemble cabinets
•install cabinets and sink
•install hardware
•replace window treatments
•upgrade and beautify pantry
•buy new microwave and fridge
•remove a section of the wall opening the room to the dining room
•make desk area
•lighting?
•bar area?

I think that is it but I’m sure there is something I’m forgetting on my list. So here is to hopefully around two weeks of chaos. Be sure to check back for the before and after photos and a rundown on the craziness that I am sure will take place!

UPDATE: 11/25/13

So in the week that we have started our work on the kitchen we have moved everything out, set up a temporary kitchen and removed all the cabinets and flooring in the kitchen. We ran into a few more problems than what we had expected but with this house it happens. So now we just need to get everything from IKEA and get down to the fun stuff.
