No, this is not my kitchen but oh how I wish it was!! This is my favorite picture to show Conner what I want in a kitchen – dark wood floors, white cabinets, light counters and light walls. L. O. V. E. it!!! Today our ‘head-knocker’ cabinets (the ones from the 80’s that extend over the long counter and block your view to the breakfast nook and hang so low you hit your head on them) are coming out and I am PUMPED! It will be like Christmas to come home and see those babies out of my life for good!
We are currently living in a semi-state of construction and I am so ready for it to be over. I don’t know how people do this for longer or for more rooms! So far, we’ve had a door installed from the master bath to master bed (no, there wasn’t one before and we have no clue why), our mantel ripped out of the fireplace, a new mantel installed, cable and power ran down the back of our fireplace and our TV mounted above the fireplace into the brick. This week the kitchen cabinets are coming out, a new single cabinet will be built against the wall in place of the old row of cabinets, the fluorescent lighting in the kitchen is coming out, new sheet rock going up and canned lighting installed instead. Whew! It is intense but I know the end result will be so worth it!
Once the guys are finished with those kitchen projects, we will paint the dark wood cabinets a bright white, paint a light color (exact color TBD) over the country red on the walls and install new hardware. Oh baby, the painting never ends!! Conner and I are becoming quite the professionals. I would say you could hire us, but I don’t know if we will want to pick up a brush again once this is over. Hah!
We have the awesome 1982 texture on our walls and it has been quite fun (*sarcasm*) to paint into all of the little holes and crevices the texture provides. I think our paint is getting eaten by it all – we have gone through so many gallons because of it! We’re doing good on progress though but now we’re to the point where we just want the house in order and to live like normal people. We’ll see how quickly we get there. 🙂
