Day № 2 Kitchen Demo I've kinda stretched the truth about the Day we are actually on!  
It is more like № LOTS OF DAYS!
Life truly does get in the way of sharing our progress...arghhh!!
So...away we go...let's get caught up.
Here is where we are at!
Slow but Steady...One Step at a Time...all seem to be our mantra.
As we continue to do most of this demo project on our own...
in-between running our vintage business & the hubby's FT job.

Plastic Tile Backsplash-GONE!
But not without a lot of muscle & elbow grease...OUCH!
The tile itself was not so bad...but the Tile Mastic (glue) was challenging to say the least.
Cannot even imagine if we had a bigger kitchen.
We just kept keeping our eye on the prize...the soon to be...

Partition Wall [including Studs & Header]-GONE!
Girl Power + Hubby Power = Gettin' it Done
It helps when your girlfriend's hubby is 7ft tall...thank you!

Electric Work-In Progress!
This is when we call in the professionals...and we LOVE his amazing work!
A few more electric projects on the To Do List...but will need to wait patiently as we follow the order of our Kitchen Renovation Time Line.

SO grateful for my high school gal pal...
with not only all of her awesome demo & design talents, 
but also her organizational skills and LOTS of advice!
