So after stressing about all the details (sweating the small stuff!) we finally started our kitchen renovation yesterday. Oddly this was not stressful. Getting everything packed up and out of there (the night) beforehand was crazy stressful. Our contractor was really sweet to leave us a working sink for as long as possible, though that may be until this afternoon. I think the plumber is on his way right now.
I know I need to go back and do a for real post on the kitchen before so there will be an even grander Aaahhh, Oooohhh when the final reveal comes but I need a day or two for that.
I'm excited (and nervous) that it's finally actually happening.
Also, we found a little piece of the original vinyl flooring under the cabinets. It's actually kind of cute in an early 80s vinyl flooring kind of way.
Lots of stuff happening here. Now I just have to be patient for it to look like a real room again!
