When we moved here the kitchen was a mess. We rent, and we got the promise by our landlord to get it fixed. So we didn't do anything, since the "kitchen fixing day" was coming any day. It didn't. So finally, after 1,5 years, today they started to tear down the cabinets today. And found some really nice tile that had been painted over sometime in the 80s. Such a pity.
They've been quick so far and half the floor is already in place after just one day. I'm so happy - finally I'll be able to cook on a stove that isn't in height of my knees.
