{House} Kitchen Remodel

I've been dying to remodel our kitchen since we bought the place. I've already done some things to make it "liveable" and now I'm going I'm thinking of the next step...


Step 1:
Remove wallpaper (from walls, ceiling, trim)
Paint textured wallpaper, walls
Paint cabinets

Don't be jealous that you don't have grapevine wallpaper climbing to your ceiling. Not everyone is privileged enough....

If you look closely, there are two different greens on the cabinets. And then wood moulding. And the grapevine wallpaper. And some metal scrolly things. And more green on the window trim. And a pinky peach ceiling. And then there's the tile backsplash...




Step 2:
Remove floor and see what's underneath - is it something easily removeable or not (the sub floor under the ugly tile is on top of original hardwood - is the hardwood floor damaged beyond repair or is it ok? This is only going to happen in the butler's pantry for the time being, aka summer, to see what I'm dealing with.)
Buy new appliances - at least dishwasher

Step 3: (the overhaul)
Buy remaining appliances (if necessary)
Demo wall between kitchen and butlers pantry
Replace windows
Possibly replace exterior door (or just fix cracked window)
Install cabinets. Thankfully my dad has offered to build the bases and then we will buy doors. This should save us tons!!
Install new floor (unless original floor is good enough to save or we will cover up with tile)
