Kitchen Update...

It has been a while, but we've made some more progress. Since neither of us have ever done drywall, it was a slow process. However, I'm happy to report that it is DONE! Now we can prime and paint the walls.

Since we are reusing our cabinets, we have been working on them to make them more sturdy. We found a Kohler white cast iron sink on Craigslist for a super good deal and we need to make sure the cabinet can support it. Even before taking the cabinets out, some of them were having some issues. Anyway, we have been working on the two base cabinets that go on either side of the stove and dishwasher. One of them is already sanded and ready to be primed and painted and the other one still needs some more sanding. Our goal tomorrow is to finish up the sanding and maybe even get some priming done! It has been a slow process, but I think that we are finally to a point that it will speed up some!

Here are a few pictures of the completed drywall. The picture that mostly shows the ceiling is showing the hardest joint we had to deal with. As you can see, it isn't perfect, but we are okay with that. Nothing in this house is perfect. Considering how it did look, I think we did a pretty good job!
