"Check" This out (Kitchen Floor Update)

Hey Guys! 

Here's another kitchen update for you.  Last night I left you with this kitchen update post and this picture...

but after I pressed "publish" I turned into crazy DIY woman and slapped on two coats of white paint over the primer.  So when I finally went to bed at 1:30am, the floor looked like this:

Today, we were ready to begin painting the checkers but the pattern was too daunting a task for me to handle it on my own.  So I enlisted the hubby to help with the hard mathematical stuff. 
Here he is hard at work:

See that fancy camera work?  You'd never know that hubby was tackling this task in nothing more than his boxers (except for the fact that I just told the entire blogger world! Whoops!)

And here's where we are tonight. We have checkers!

 We still have plenty to do but it's coming along nicely!

I'll be sure to post a tutorial once I've completed this project.  I want to make sure I figure out and fix all mistakes prior to giving instructions to you!

Whatcha' think?
