Goodbye Ol’ Yeller

...

With the stove out and the sink disconnected we were ready to remove those ugly, yellow, no good keister off my property before I… woah, woah, woah, slight rabbit trail. Home Alone anybody? Ahhem …what I meant was – ugly, yellow, laminate countertops off our property.

It wasn’t all that difficult to rock the peninsula off the cabinets since it was just a bit of liquid nail holding it down. So we pulled it up until we got to the sink then it was stuck… So I grabbed the ol’ circle saw and cut the little 2.5″ piece holding it together.

We assumed the other half would come off just as easily. Just a little bit of rocking and we’d be in good shape. So I grabbed the little piece I had cut and used it for leverage. Then I began to pull. Um… Bad idea.

You see, if there is one thing you should know about me aside from the fact that I love Christmas and that I’m a complete germaphobe its that I hate my belly button being poked, pushed, touched, or really anything that disrupts the peace. So wouldn’t you know it that this is how the second half of our countertop removal went down.

Though, ultimately, we did succeed in removing it and in the end the kitchen was looking a bit more bare. And, per usual, Chestnut was exploring.
