Kitchen Renovation – Weekend #1

We started the kitchen renovation this weekend!

Step 1 – Wall off the breakfast nook to make a walk-in pantry/laundry room. (Our washer and dryer are in the basement right now – NOT convenient.)

My father-in-law is awesome. He threw the wall up in just a few hours. Josh and I will be breaking out the paint tonight. Then we’ll install the door later this week and cross this step off the list!

Plus – Our NEW refrigerator be delivered tomorrow!!! I am soooooooo excited!! It’s BEAUTIFUL!!

 

 

P.S. We HAVE to buy a new camera battery charger. I still can’t find our old one and I really want to take pics during the renovation. 🙁

Here are some pics taken with my iPhone – please excuse the quality…and please ignore the mess that is our kitchen.
