Kitchen Remodel - Day 1

Well I had the most romantic Valentine’s day possible. My boyfriend recently came into acquisition of a house and it needs a lot of work. So we spent the most romantic day of the year in yucky clothes, demoing a kitchen. We even had a candle lit Pizza dinner (without the candles.)

This was what it looked like before. As you can see, the lovely, peeling wallpaper from the 1970’s really needed to go and the cracking laminate floors are just an added bonus.
This is what it looked like at the end of the day. 3 layers of wallpaper glue. 3 LAYERS PEOPLE! We were able to pull down 2 layers of it in giant strips, but this last one is going to need scraped. 
Seriously though, we had a really fun day and it was much better than being all mushy gushy at some fancy restaurant. I voluntarily spent my Valentine’s Day this way and I’m glad I did. We have a lot of work ahead of us but I’m excited to make this a really nice space. The goal at the end of this reno is to have a nice kitchen on a budget, which means doing most of the work ourselves, and not go crazy in the process. Also, this is the biggest project in the whole house to tackle, so that’s why we’re starting it first.
My coat is basically done, I just need to add the buttons/ button holes! I will have a post about it soon, I promise. This kitchen just kind of took over a little :)
