Episode 5: Return of the Room

May 13, 2008 + , ,

She's baa-aack. The kitchen, that is. Drywall is up and the subfloor is down. Let's take a look at how far we've come.




Ta-da! Yes, I know... there's not that much to look at. But since HandyMan and I did most of this work ourselves, I'm pretty darned pleased. We've finished painting (you can see the sample swatch beside the sliding door frame). Next up: floor tile installation this weekend. Here's a closer look at the palette... an olive taupe porcelain tile, calcutta marble backsplash, kashmir white granite and matte black oval knobs. The reno just keeps chug-chug-chugging along...

  3. We used Baked Brie by Behr, Jessie. Its a pale chalky yellow with a grey undertone and goes well with the yellow wallpaper in the adjacent dining room. We'll 'kick it up' by using bright yellow accessories in the kitchen.

  4. You guys have been working your tails off in this kitchen. I can't even imagine all that goes into something like this. Makes me feel a little ashamed that I can't seem to complete the little projects I have around my own house...

    Can't wait to see the next installment of your reno! -Julia
