Removing Ceramic Tile (Part 2)

There’s a dryer in the kitchen…

…and food on the piano.

The word “dusty” doesn’t even begin to describe every. single. surface east of the plastic drop cloth that separates the kitchen from the rest of the house.

Aw, heck. Who am I kidding. The whole place needed dusting before we even started this big reno.

These two don’t seem to mind all the commotion though…

Now these two on the other hand…

I think they’re ready for a couple of days off.

    I saw the AUsome sticker on the truck, and I just want to say a big WAR EAGLE!

    I’m up here in Birmingham trying to nest in my house, and I just love what y’all have done! It’s nice to see fellow Alabamian bloggers!

    Wow! Great effort at pounding through the ceramic tiles. It will all be worth it in the end when you have your lovely new floor. And, I am so happy to see Kit Kat looking adorable snuggling on his pillow. He has a special place in my heart. So glad you are looking out for him. Has he found a new home yet?

    My husband and I are planning on installing hardwood floors (right now we have carpet and ceramic tile). Our kitchen has ceramic, and I want to have the hw floors in the kitchen also. He would rather just leave the kitchen with tile because we would have to temporarily remove the cabinets in order to get the entire kitchen floor done. Did you not have to do that? Whatever you can say to help convince him to do the hw floors in the kitchen would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Ooh, Can you show a bigger picture of the rug kitty is sleeping on? Source? It looks like all the right colors for my living room. Thanks!

    I’m avidly following your tile removal! :-) Our kitchen has ceramic tile and its coming up sooner rather than later. Not looking forward to the mess but am looking forward to getting rid of it.
