Ann’s Kitchen Remodel

I’m all for longevity of finishes and not junking serviceable things before they’re shot, but I think 27 years is long enough to put up with ugly, cracked, avocado tile with hideous dark (and eroded) grout seams PLUS an equally horrid avocado sink. So now they’re gone. Hurray! Replaced by a white farmhouse sink (Villeroy & Boch) and butcherblock counters (Ikea). These are just two of the functional and aesthetic improvements underway in my kitchen.

This is the end of day 7, and I couldn’t be happier with the progress and quality workmanship of Rick Lee and his crew at Home Pride Construction — based here in my home town of Pacifica, CA.

Have a gander at the progress and some of my product selections on Pinterest. Follow my board to see day-by-day progress.
