Kitchen - during

Well folks, we're just about half-way there and so we thought we'd share some pictures of our space in it's not so glamorous glory. As I write this, The Block is on the television, and all I can think is how thankful I am that we're only doing a kitchen (for now). It's a good starting point! Speaking of which, here's a bit about the process we started with, from ripping up the floors to getting ready for our bench tops to be installed...

Step 1: Rip-up Lino tile flooring ✔︎

We're now ready for the top cupboards to go in, benches to be measured, new flooring to be installed and lighting to be completed (I'm way t0o excited about the pendant lights we've chosen). Fingers crossed, this time next month I'll be showing you the finished product in it's new glamorous glory!
