Below is the Kitchen at 9:00 am
Above: This is the Kitchen at about 2:00pm. The cabinets were custom made and drilled/nailed into the walls. They screwed the plywood counter top into the cabinets then did the custom Coca-Cola finish with the epoxy over the top. The counter top was saved which meant the bottom cabinet pieces were broken instead.
Kitchen at 9:00pm. Goodbye flooring, goodbye cabinets, goodbye Coca-Cola stuff.
The flooring is all pulled up (minus the tar paper). Yes folks there is hardwood flooring under there! There were 5 different floor coverings, 6 layers total, 7 if you include the tar paper. The plus side of all the layers of flooring is that the wood floor hadn't been walked on for about 50 years.
What are we doing with all the Coca-Cola stuff you ask... well we are going to be selling it. They are really cool looking when it comes to it, it really is just not for us especially since Hubby likes Pepsi.
Our other find today was another layer of wallpaper, 50's? 60's? The reflective wallpaper we are most certain its from the 70's, just not sure about this one.
Since Hubby and his friend were being manly in the kitchen I was not allowed to join in any of the fun. Well, having to go to work took up a large chunk of my day. Although, I started cleaning the walls and taping out the new closet that is going in the master bedroom.
In 4.5 days we have torn out the kitchen, all the trim in the living/dining room and the entry way. Taken out the cabinets in the downstairs bathroom, torn off all the paneling, besides the pieces that are stuck behind window treatments of have lights attached, and tore out all the drywall in the basement. We are tired!
