This is the only thing that Jack and I could not do ourselves. The ceiling where we removed the wall, we could not get it smooth. So while we were in Florida, we had the ceiling filled in and the entire ceiling painted. This was the only work that was hired out on the entire project.
We added a tile backsplash.
We loved the backsplash, so we decided to add tile above the cupboards as well.
This side of the kitchen was done the year before, so we just added the glass cabinet on the left, the microwave shelf and installed a flip-down TV. Also changed the counter top.
Next we had an island build. We wanted a 2 tone wood look, so we had the island made from a dark wood instead to white to set the room off a bit.
And putting in the new floor was excited. We had a friend of ours guide us, since we had never done it ourselves..... The brick look that is behind the sink was all around the kitchen. It had to be cracked out bit by bit.
