Hi, all! Remember me? Lisa from southern New Jersey, owner of The Pilot, partner in crime to the Dude?
Well, it's been some time since I posted last but I'm starting up the old blog again to share what's been going on with our house projects and to share a new project we are currently working on.
A few weeks ago we finally got our act together and decided to create a bit of a mess with a full-gut of our lame, sad, kitchen from 1984. Who doesn't like some organized destruction...perhaps our neighbors who could not park in front of our house for a few days?
I think our old kitchen had the potential to win one of those "World's Worst Kitchen" contests but we aren't that motivated to make a stupid video, send it in, and be actor-y. I'd rather pay good money for a kitchen that I like than be stuck with one of show's "designer's" wacky ideas.
Here's our kitchen all cleared out and in it's former state of being...
Okay, let's discuss the ugly:
- faux parquet floors
- faux butcher block countertops
- faux wood cabinets
- faux brick paneling
- faux wood plank ceiling
- two boob lights
- no good soffit
- peeling painted over wallpaper (my mother decided the day we moved in to start ripping off the wallpaper because it was "fun" - that was nine years ago)
This kitchen was filled with fakes like a New York city street corner.
After we filled up those two Bagsters, our kitchen became a shell of a kitchen. You'll note that prior to the kitchen's last remodel in 1984, there was a large window to the right. That was the only surprise we found and lots of bad electrical wiring.
Thanks for reading to this point and I hope you stick around for more updates at a higher frequency.
Yay for a kitchen remodel!
