|This floor has lived a full life.|
|This is before I realized how long this was going to take me.|
|Check out that awesome faux brick vinyl!|
|Scraped up floor.|
But in the end, I got it mostly up. There was still some of the old sheet vinyl backing left stuck to the floor, but it wasn't necessary to get every little inch up as long as it was firmly fixed to the floor. Then it was time to start laying the tile.
Just like I did in the bathroom, I spent a good amount of time dry laying the tile to figure out the best fit in the space.

A couple days later, I grouted the floor.

And done! Woo hoo!
We move in this coming weekend and there is much left to be done. We certainly won't finish everything prior to moving, but the priorities are:
- reinstall the kitchen sink & faucet
- trim the edges of the countertops
- afix the countertops to the cabinets
- move the stove back in place
- hopefully not move the old fridge back in place, but instead have a new one delivered!
