The Kitchen Facelift

The kitchen facelift!! It went from sticky tiles and yellow paint to the wood floors, newly painted baseboards, new switches, light covers, and heater vent covers, and the green paint. Also, we put all the light fixtures back up from when we were doing the roof. It actually looks like a kitchen!!! It's only a "band-aid" because this window, this big wall and the ceiling will all be going when we get to the kitchen remodeling part of our house. We wanted it to look presentable til we get to that, after everything else is put back together!!

From yellow to green

You can see about 3 layers of linoleum that we are ripping out, along with the particle board underneath. We went all the way down to the original '60ies linoleum. Then we changed the yellow to green!!!

The Autorama

We went to the Autorama about a month ago. Em was able to sit in a little dragster that they let you start driving if you are 6!!!
Em loves looking at the cars and is very opinionated about which ones she likes and which ones she doesn't!!! She was really excited about the motorcycles too!! Like father like daughter!! Jas is in heaven that me and Em like to go look at the cars/bikes with him. He's really into cars and always has been. He's restoring his '69 Cougar and he's building (from scratch) a '34 Ford. He likes to get ideas from these shows!! It's a fun family outing.
