Kitchen Renovation - Week Four - Tuesday

Kitchen renovation, Mannington pewter filagree floor, Victorian Pewter paint color
Week Three of the kitchen renovations was a one-day flurry followed by nothing.

Week Four started with electricians, plumbers, dry wall men, and painters.

It was a non-stop two days.

Gray primer went up on Monday.

You can see the previous paint color - Dover White - sorta creamy.

We only had to do without the fridge for two hours during the entire renovations.

One very small dent on the back but no paint drops.

The floor went in.

The back door went in.


This old house no longer has square anything.

A lot of adjustments and now it fits just fine.

There are several things we love about this renovation - the floor being near the top of the list.

It does not show dirt!

Mannington Pewter Filagree.

Two coats of primer and the painters called it quits for the day.

Returned on Tuesday for the dramatic final coat.

Victorian Pewter.

This is the pantry.

Pantry to the fridge.

The main kitchen goes off to the right.

From the breakfast room through the galley kitchen to the laundry room.

After decades of a dark kitchen, there are lights!

From the laundry room to the breakfast room.

The rest of Week Four tomorrow.

This was the fourth week in May.

Are we finished yet?

No, but getting there.

See y'all!

  9. I love the Mannington flooring!

  10. I love the floor (the color, design and doesn't show dirt) and the wall paint. Very lovely combination, and dramatic! We all need a little drama in our lives. It's too bad you had to deal with the redoing your kitchen to get it! lol I like the lightness of your cabinets. Are they painted? Natural wood? Someday it will be us getting our kitchen redone! I love that yours is a galley. You don't have to figure out how to add in an island. If we didn't have an island, we would have an eat-in kitchen. If we didn't have our computer table taking up space, we would already have had an eat-in kitchen. Hmmm...I'll have to talk to Katie about my revelation...getting rid of the island.
