To start, the Joneses, and other family members including moi, started ripping down and tearing up. Oh, how I enjoy kitchen demolition! Even the kids got their share of demo, which BTW, shows you and I that if a 6 and 8 year old can do it…
You can do it too.
What do you think? Should they paint them?
As April pulled down the kitchen paneling, I wanted to shout, "Rip it!" in Madea's voice just like on the movie, Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
Underneath we found plastered walls full of glue from formerly tiled walls. The tile went all the way down the hall at one time.
They will be drywalling since it would be too much work to try to clean off all the glue in order to paint.
The flooring was nasty, so we took off trim and then peeled off the floor only to find another floor underneath with a bazillion staples.
The boys spent a whole day nailing them flat into the floor so Adam can put on a sub floor for the new floor tile.
Mark, April and I used a pry bar to get the paneling off the wall. Those bad boys are useful! I think I just may buy myself one of those little ones to have around the house.
I think I'm turning into a female Tim the Tool-man…
