This is what the back porch looked like before we demolished it last spring:
It won't be long before my laundry room is finished, and having the extra room for boots and coats as well as having my washer and dryer together in a real laundry room will be so nice after four years of the former situation!
Here is hubby hard at work on the new mud/laundry room this weekend:
On Saturday I worked on painting the kitchen and then helped T put up the ceiling in the laundry room. We only have a little bit left before we are finished putting it all up. The south wall of the room is the original outside wall of the cabin. I want to keep that wall exposed and either clean it and leave it just as it is or paint it; I haven't decided yet which option I will go with.
Today I continued painting the kitchen cupboards and finished cleaning the hardware that I removed from the cupboard doors a few weeks back. I can't wait to see the cupboards once I have finished painting them and put the original hardware back on. My goal is to have the walls and cupboards all freshly painted by the end of March. Then I will just have the floor to do in white and I know it is going to look so awesome when I am done.
Here is what the kitchen looked like when we moved in.
Here are photos of my painting progress so far:
This is the wood floor we found underneath four layers of linoleum. I am going to paint it bright white; can't wait to see how it will look when I am all done!
It's hard to be patient, but when it is done I know I am going to love it!
