Surprise ! Griza Kitchen is Under Construction!

You all know how hard I have been working on our Dining Room, which was all part of the end game... some Kitchen changes. We are trying to tie in the dining, kitchen and living rooms with color scheme and open-ness. My lovely and talented neighbor, jGro made a beautiful design that has been the road map for this great adventure.
Below you see a before shot. We wanted a bar area so that we could serve food through it into the dining room, and also because we are short on countertop space. The table shown here does nothing BUT COLLECT CLUTTER. It never sits there longer than a few hours without junk piled on it! Goodbye old table.

These are my new friends Javier and Gabriel. They are excellent and clean up after themselves very well. I tried to play them my Cabo playlist full of spanish tunes but I don't think they were diggin it. Ralphie LOVED them and I think the feeling was mutual. They didnt know what to make of all my picture taking but were real patient! They also taught me how to use a nail gun! I have always wanted one of those things so when I was admiring theirs, they totally gave me a lesson!
Everyone was a little saddened when the sheetrock got cut out and this was discovered. Old school wood and concrete from the 1920's! Alot harder to remove than drywall!
And at the end of day one we have the cut out, and some trim work done!
