The boyfriend and I are in a mad scramble. We are trying to get the den/kitchen done for this weekend. And if tasks were grains of sand – we would be swimming in the Sahara. This weekend was a good start but we have so much more to do. AHHH!!
The far left door is the pantry. It is disgustingly small. When I buy the three cans of beans for chili and some diced tomatoes…it takes up the entire space. It is my arch nemesis in this house.
And the fabulous (although cluttered) AFTER. The painting of the walls is complete. I think the color really showcases the warmth of the cabinets. And yes, my counters are messy. I don’t know how you gals do it. Or who can put every single thing in place prior to taking a photo…but I am not a freak for having clutter. Don’t be judging me in your heart. I am a clutterbug. I am not proud! I can’t ever seem to find the time to clean up a room just for a picture. I will, however, make Jeremy move furniture back to where it was (even if he already started a project) just so that I can get an accurate “before” photo 🙂
Around the fridge is now screaming ‘Dusty Trail’ too. Ok – and maybe I should take the stuff off the front of our fridge…I see what you guys mean about that just looking dumb.
And the living room in our new color. I love it. At first I was unsure – but it totally won me over in the morning light.
So there you have it. A painted kitchen and den…so here is the list of things still stressing me out on our To Do List:
- tile on opposite side of kitchen behind microwave
- scrape any remaining thinset (or icing as Jeremy calls it) from the cracks.
- clean the entire backsplash
- seal grout
- install breaker so hood can get some juice
- install hood
- reattach any moldi
- paint window and trim
- replace light above sink
