This is our kitchen, circa 1960-70’s, looking into the family room and down the basement stairwell (unfinished).
We have to get the floor into the kitchen and turn the corner into the family room before we can remove these stabilizer boards and change direction in order to complete the living room.
So what that meant was I had to clean out some kitchen stuff and dismantle a portion of an IKEA shelf I’ve been using! We dismantled the last section (not seen in the below photo) but to do it I had to take EVERYTHING out of it…
I started sorting the
crap stuff into piles…’Need’, ‘Don’t Need Right Now’, ‘RV’!
Yes! RV! Two weeks to go before we take delivery on our new RV! I digress!
In the mean time though…more look behind the scenes of our progress and my junk sorting! Looking down the back hall towards the laundry corner (it’s not really a room, just a corner that holds the washing machine and dryer).
We think it was the same tile we replaced in the foyer when we first moved in! Eeesh! This stuff was nasty. And can you see that remnant of wallpaper on the wall there in the right hand corner? Here it is close up…
Mid-century modern baby! Or tres ’70’s retro chic!!! Uggh! I helped Jim snap a line and he asked me to check it for square. I started using the 5-6-7 rule but then I thought of our Quilting Rulers!!! How appropriate is this?
We did pretty good. It’s a perfectly square line!
We hope to have the dining room finished this week!
