Finished is scary to me - every single time we have finished remodeling a home, DH immediately wanted to find another project house and move! I do enjoy seeing my 'vision' of what it 'could be' come to life though!
After Hurricane Ike we had to replace my entire kitchen....geeze what a mess! Tore everything out to the bare walls and replaced all cabinets and counter tops. Not complaining too much because I finally got my granite counter tops. I had just enough insurance to cover the kitchen re-do - but it left a LOT of stuff for us to do out of our own pocket. I looked at granite, drooled over it for a minute, then woke up! This project is being paid for with Christmas money from my Father- he has begun to attach strings to his gifts. He gave up buying gifts, because the things my stepmother buys are totally wasted on us, and just giving us money resulted in us applying it all to bills. We now have to 'prove' that we bought something enjoyable with it
Thanks Deb, and I hope so!BarredBuff Very, very nice kitchen! It is nice now, but I'm hoping it's much better and more of a working kitchen when we're done!

Thanks! It took quite a while to try to piece the cut-offs and what-not into something that looked like it belonged together Best part was, it only cost me $5, and that was just because DH offered to cut the only two pieces of one kind of tile for me, and it didn't go so well so I had to buy a whole sheet
I am also drooling over your kitchen! Yay...another clean spot in the camper now!
I was sooooo excited to get this kitchen - it's twice as big as any I've ever had! It just needs a little improving to be my 'perfect' kitchen and, since DH is off and we've 'collected' most of what we need, it seems like the perfect time to get started. Best part is, the 'scraps' from this job should be just enough to do the bathroom with (well, all but the tub, which I'd like to redo. Right now it's olive green )
Clean spot...that's funny
