Before and After! My Little Kitchen in Paradise!

I have been HARD at work on my new place in between work and fun! I have also spent some pretty good money at home depot and the local hardware store. It's so fun and pretty much instant gratification when it comes to home repairs. This is my first time actually fixing up a place on my own and I am having a blast! Yesterday I finished my kitchen floor!

Here are the old cracked and holy linoleum floors...

And my new and improved faux hickory wood laminate! Wow! It comes in individual planks just like real wood!

It took me about 2 hours to cut and lay it all. Not bad! Now for the rest of the house!

Here are the crusty bar stools I found before...

And after!


I painted the kitchen a color called "grasshopper wing" LOL! It's awesome. Now it's time to finish those old cream colored counters and get some new knobs for the cabinet doors and I should be just about finished!
