And remember this kitchen, no, it's not done but I've started.
This is the beginning, once I tore into the paper, it became a project that has to be done.
I had to use a box cutter to score the bottom and top of the back splash and peel it away from the wall. As you can see I damaged the wall a little but all I'll have to do is sand the adhesive off and apply a thin layer of sheet rock mud and sand smooth.
I've made it all the way around to the large wall in back. It looks so bland, I can't wait until I can paint.
This is what I have left, the wall going into the laundry room, behind the refrigerator, and I'm also removing the back splash in this area here.
Saturday night my husband, his brother and wife, and I went downtown Birmingham to the Taste Of Fourth Avenue Jazz Festival. It was a free Jazz Concert, sponsored by The City Of Birmingham, Urban Impact, 98.7 Kiss FM, and the Alabama Jazz Hall Of Fame. This is a picture of the stage, it's sitting right in the middle of 4th avenue and the people you see are standing where cars actually drive.
This picture is blurred because the people here in front of the stage were all dancing and having a ball. The music was fantastic! Earlier there had also been a Cultural Parade, they had an Art Village, Children's Activities, and Swing Dancing. We didn't go downtown until about 9.00pm, it was over about 12.00am. I really enjoyed it and will go again next year if the have it.
