Nights without meetings...

I should not be allowed to have lazy evenings when I haven't completely exhausted myself. Last night I came home from the YMCA (working out and teaching a couple swimming lessons) and I walked the sweet little girl and she was happily playing with her orange ball, when I began the project. I was sitting in my kitchen throwing the ball for Dakota when I realized I was fully annoyed with my kitchen tiles, they are ugly, they are dated, they are crooked, I don't like them. So instead of complaining about it or anything else I looked up online to see how to take down tiles. This project is going to be a little more work than I maybe anticipated and I know absolutely NOTHING about laying tiles, so I will learn. I give thanks for an independent spirit that leads me to do things that could potentially go horribly wrong. I give thanks for parents who taught me that it is okay to try things even when you have no clue what you are doing. 

So the project I think will go as follows (or at least this is the plan as of now):
-rip out the tiles (they are everywhere)
-potentially take out the fake brick stuff (debating this still)
-paint the cupboards
-replace the draw pulls and handles on the cupboards
-put up new tile (this is the part that makes me the most nervous)
-Enjoy a new-ish kitchen


  1. Let me know if you need a hand. (or a reference for a good tile guy)

  2. YAY!!! Thanks Ike, I maybe calling you for some help if I get in a bind.... truth be told I am learning everything from google as I go.
