Based on this development I think I can say my thumb is now brown and heading towards dark green! :-)
It was a good day :-)

And here it is after we took it apart:
The toilet got to stay and I decided to keep the vanity base because it was in decent shape and I thought I could refinish it and save some money. Well let me just say that next time we tackle a bathroom I'm going to check out the prices of new ones because maybe spending a little money will be worth it if it saves me some headaches.
Anyway, on to the pictures! (I wish I could have got the whole room in the pic but its so small I couldn't make it work.)
Snazzy faucet I got an amazing deal on at Costco

This is the kitchen the day we moved in:
*Counter tops (they’re in good condition but just not really our style - not to mention the grout is a total pain to clean)
Things we love:
*The room gets a good amount of light
*The sink in the corner in front of the 2 windows
*Lots of cabinet space
First we painted the walls and ceiling "Antique White" (the same as the rest of the room), and replaced the blinds. The paint color really helped to tone down the yellow-ness. Yay!
Then we replaced the microwave and stove.
This weekend we got rid of the fluorescent light and installed a gorgeous pendant. We had to hire an electrician to move the light outlet (or whatever its called) because the wires for the fluorescent light came out of the ceiling right by the stove - which would be a really odd spot to have the new pendant. This is what the ceiling looked like after he left - yikes!
I figured out how to patch dry wall and reapply wall texture and now it looks like this:

We celebrated yesterday with some delicious wheat-free treats from the dog bakery. How adorable are these 'pastries'?!
(In case you're wondering, he's on his leash because he tries to eat rocks and my herbs if we let him loose in the back yard.)
