Had some remodel photo requests . . . so here are the before and after . . . I had the tile replaced in late 2009 . . . it had been over 15 years (we have lived here for 23 years) and the existing tile was falling apart, my son-in-law replaced the old white tile with this slate looking tile. My mom's husband was going to re-do the cabinets for me . . . with mom's passing and all that took place, the kitchen sat this way until recently.
I was painting my granddaughter's room at the same time this was being done . . . this house was a mess. Still going thru "stuff" . . . purging and putting away . . . way too much stuff! Have a few more things to do to "warm" the kitchen up, but now, I can focus on my family history like I need and want to be doing . . . glad it's done.
