Kitchen- Before the Facelift shots

So as I had mentioned in a previous post, our kitchen is getting a little facelift. On Monday night Brad tore out the baseboards and removed all the trim around the doors in preparation for the floor to be leveled. On Tuesday the floor was leveled and it has been drying for the past two days. Today is the big day! We are finally going to have tile! I am at work but feel giddy and excited. I can't wait to go home and see how the kitchen is shaping up. I have been dreaming of replacing our yucky lino for 6 years! As soon as the tile is down, we will paint and put in all new tall baseboards and trim to match the rest of our little house and will paint the walls. I am thinking that I will paint the kitchen a soft and buttery shade of yellow. It is a relatively small kitchen with only one smallish window. I am hoping that by painting the kitchen a happy yellow that it will make the room feel larger and brighter. We also have some can lights to install someday that should help brighten things up a bit.

Here are some before pictures of the kitchen and little hallway off the kitchen.
