Apparently there was confusion about which part of the kitchen was being done over. Not the cabinets, we already painted those this summer and being lowly students we aren’t rolling in the dough enough to change all the cabinets. Luckily for us (or unluckily) we have a very very tiny amount of counter space. While this is a pain most of the time (like when we’re trying to cook), it makes for a much cheaper update.
I don’t want to post the finished pictures yet, but here’s the one with the counters ripped up.
