We removed the wall between the kitchen and living room, gutted both rooms and replaced the 6' slider with 10 feet of french doors.
Time for the floors! It was messy, but worth it! We used natural maple wood flooring, with dark hickory borders,which separates the Italian marble in the kitchen and entryway.Now:
All that's left to do in the kitchen is to add the kick plates to the bottom of the cabinets!
Now...we must finish the rest of the house....ugghhh!
Dark espresso stain on the french doors, ties together the dark hickory borders.
