The before the before

This is the summer of house projects.  We have put some things off for years and are excited to finally get around to them this summer.  These are some before the befores of the kitchen.  Our old craftsman is almost 100 years old!  When we moved in 5 years ago we moderned it up a bit (Apparently I’m making up words).  We bought it from a family that had lived and raised their family in it for 50 years.  The house was in great shape but just a little dated. 

Thankfully the only room that had wallpaper was the kitchen.  That came down quickly and the cabinets were also painted white. 

We are having a new linoleum floor put in next week along with new carpeting throughout so I’ll share more before along with the afters as progress is made.

The before from 5 years ago:   (I’ll post the recent before when i post the after)
