Day 6 of the renovation!
The above wallpaper ( sorry about the photos our camera is on the fritz..) was underneath a 1985-1990 renovation which was worse than this - it was kind of dusty rose and pale green splatters. eww... This wallpaper is bright pink, yellow, orange and brown. It was interesting- on first glance I totally hated it, but then I looked at all of the elements in that space and I thought, well, that actually all works well together for the time. It's going to be painted over, but I can appreciate the previous owner's choice!
At first when we saw this kitchen I was reticent but it has really grown on me. It is really well made. It is stamped in all the drawers with "Hanover Kitchens" which is a local Cabinetry place. I am really impressed with how it is constructed and how well it has held up. We have already moved most of our kitchen stuff in there and I can not believe how much space is left. I am not used to the luxury of tons and tons of storage!
The backsplash had wallpaper on it that has now been removed. Unfortunately in both the bathroom and the kitchen they had wallpapered over unprimed gyprock which has meant a lot of plaster and sanding and probably two coats of primer.
This weekend we really did get so much done. It is really starting to feel like we actually have a house now!
