This is picture heavy!
The answer is: Both. We had the floors done in February 2011. In October 2011, we had a flood in the kitchen and the new floors had to be torn out. While they were being replaced, we had the wall taken out.
So, things were getting underway. We LOVE the big open space and can't even imagine it with that wall there anymore. Next to tackle: the ceiling, lighting, and counter tops.
Formica... doesn't look too bad from a distance.
(yes, that's snow.)
Eventually I am going to paint the outlet covers to match the island so they don't stick out like a sore thumb. Same with the walls.
It's sooo nice to finally be done with it... I have been using the stove and the oven a little, but it's been so busy around here that I haven't really cooked anything interesting. I think I might make some banana bread this weekend... mmm, getting hungry just thinking about it!
Until next time!
