Sister's Kitchen Remodel Progress - Continued



My sister Michelle has been renovating her 1960's era house for the past couple years since she bought it. She has a full time job and 2 kids, one is a college Freshman at Ohio State University and the other is a 5th grader. So she is pretty busy. In addition to this she is trying to update her house.

She bought the house from the family of the original owner, and looking through the house they stopped making updates at some point in the late 1970's - mid 1980's. She has a lot of work to do to get the house updated and looking the way she envisions it in the future.

Part of reno is having money so she has gotten a second job in order to save money toward her renovations, so change is happening but slowly. I last showed you pictures a month ago of her kitchen progress to date, she had just installed new counters, dishwasher, sink and a new light fixture. She is still working on her cabinets and walls. Her floor is less than a year old and her refrigerator is newer as well.



Just a quick update! She finally got a new stove and replaced the old green one. The black is a huge improvement! And she has started hanging her glass tile sheets.

These pics were taken with her phone so they are not the greatest, but I hope to visit soon and will get better pictures!

Plus she just had Bath Fitters re-do her main bathroom tub, so I cannot wait to see that in person and take a few pics to share here.

I like posting these progresses to remind me that slow progress isn't a bad thing. She is working to save the money to pay for these renovations out of pocket - in cash and that is really an accomplishment to be proud of. Can't wait to show you more!

Have a Happy Labor Day Holiday!
