We began tearing apart our kitchen in order to paint and prepare for the new backsplash and countertops. I am saying goodbye to the blue which I loved and hello to a grey/tan. You can see a test strip of it on the the picture below by the door on the right. We decided to go ahead and paint the ceiling first since we have not painted it for about 7 years. So we washed walls etc. most of the afternoon.
We pulled everything to the center of the room and took all the things hung on the wall off as well as all the outlet plates and light switch plates. Then the window treatments and the ceiling fan blades. Then I trimmed out the ceiling from the wall about 4 inches so Bob can use a roller tomorrow and finish the rest. I will start of the trim tomorrow.
Now that it is atarted I am in the mode and hope to get it finished in the next 2 or three days. Then we probably will play a waiting game for the counters and the back splash tiles since those are two different people. But that is okay as long as all my work is finished.
