Kitchen Re-Do: Construction Done. Now Comes the Hard Part

Updated: Feb 7, 2019

Our kitchen has been re-floored, re-tiled, re-countered, re-plumbed, re-wired, re-painted and re-built.

The construction phase of the kitchen re-do is over!

This is just some of the kitchen stuff I must now trash or treasure

Now comes the hard part. I have to put everything back. Kitchen stuff is strewn across two rooms of our house. Glasses, plates, pots, pans, enough cleaning supplies to make the Trump Tower sparkle, utensils, coffee cups…the list goes on and on.

Before returning all this stuff I am going to sort through it and discard unneeded items following the advice of the latest cleaning guru, Marie Kondo. She says to only keep things that “spark joy.” There go the cleaning supplies. The wine glasses definitely stay.

I will post a final picture once everything is back in the kitchen and decorative touches have been added. Believe me, it might be a while.

In the meantime, here are some pictures of the wonderful contractors who made it all possible.

The young men from Clean Sweep were invaluable during the tear now phase and preparing the kitchen for new improvements.

John , supervisor from Countertop Solutions, makes sure all measurements are accurate before ordering final counter tops and tile.

The plumbers from Charles Town Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning worked long and hard to get the plumbing reconfigured for the new sink.

The true hero of the kitchen re-do: my husband Ron who primed and re-painted the entire kitchen, replaced door knobs and hinges, installed ceiling fan and new light fixtures, and worked side by side with every contractor.
