The kitchen was remodeled probably 30-40 years ago and updated with paint of questionable tastes. A window was covered up with cabinets and a wall oven. Some of the original tile was visible on the walls. Similar tile was on the floor. Apparently somebody really liked tile. Really.
P's vision for the kitchen doesn't include anything seen here. Especially the tile. So the demolition of the kitchen begins. P is removing tile from the walls. There was even tile behind the cabinets. We've picked out cabinets and have a dream of marble counter tops. We hope to make that happen.
