I thought I would share more pics of the progress of our kitchen reno.
I have to admit, when Sean starting putting the tinted primer on I got VERY NERVOUS! It was coming out like a bright lemon! Sean just kept telling me to be patient and wait for the paint. HA! Me patient. Funny guy.

So here is a shot of the kitchen with primer. It looks better in the picture than real life. So that should give you an idea on why I was nervous! LOL

Another picture of the primer. With the light that I can't WAIT to get rid of. Can't stand it. It will be replaced with a ceiling fan.I was feeling bad about Sean doing all this work so Jonah and I headed to the closets to get them cleaned out. Below is my bedroom that clearly I ripped apart! But out of it we bagged 7.5 bags for the childrens wish clean out drive.
Now you can see the difference with the paint on it. Much deeper, warm and creamy. I love it. The handyman (for those who dont know is my husband!LOL) started on the floor. Such yucky tile he was ripping up. Luckily for me, it was hard work and he was sweating so off came the shirt!! And yes Martha, it does make for the hubby getting lucky! LOL
I'm working on the pants ;)

Sean wanted to do something different for the floor. Instead of just lying down the same throughout, he wanted to take 3 or 4 different colours and pattern them together. I can't wait to see how it turns out!!

So my kitchen is coming along really well! I have to admit, I am getting sick of take out food!!
Stay tuned for the finished flooring!

Love the yellow...
Just remember, too many " private consults" with the construction crew might mean a delay in the completion of the project. (giggle giggle...) Keep your eye on the finish line!
