The kitchen has gone from this blah, white on white, yawn inducing color scheme to this:

We couldn't be happier with the way the color turned out in the kitchen.  Of course now it makes the gold knobs that were only mildly ugly before, full-on ugly.  They will be replaced soon.

The floor is starting to take shape too.  After all day Saturday (and the help of my brother) and all day Sunday and Kevin working for about six hours tonight we have a good section of flooring installed.

OK, actually we have more than in the first photo but I am too lazy to go downstairs and take another picture.  The living room and dining room are done and the little entrance to the kitchen is done as is part of the hallway heading towards the front door.  Soon the memory of walking around on perpetually dusty, nasty feeling concrete will be a memory.  We will have a floor!! 

Of course along the way we discovered that we have another leaky heater and so two of our six heaters will need to be replaced.  This has also necessitated more drywall work than we anticipated but it has to be done. 

New gold paint and floor, glorious floor!
Old boring white paint and a section of the old flooring.

Wow! That looks like a ton of work, but it is beautiful.

The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous -- that red really makes it pop!

Is your giant metal chicken also named Beyonce??
