Kitchen Remodel Part 2

This was the view from my kitchen table last week. Not depressing at all.
The first cupboard up......YAY!
Something horrific we found behind the fridge. No, not anything rotting, but the emerald paint with a wallpaper border that used to be in our kitchen. Our kitchen is not all that big, so that particular decorating motif must have been claustrophobic!
Behold, our first wall of cupboards completed on Saturday.
Now 5 out of 7 upper cupboards are complete. Except that one without the door. It was damaged so we had to go back to the store (again!) get a new one today. On the bright side, while we were there we saw Hairyshoefairy and got to chat for a while. Technically, she saw us because I had reached that point of no longer being aware of my surroundings because you are shopping with two children and are tempted to just leave them there. But I didn't. They both made it home, safe and sound.

Yikes! That paint and boarder are scary. Ew. And it was so fun to see you and visit a while! The cupboards look great! I just hope the rest goes as smoothly.

I love your cupboards! But more than that I love your fridge! A fridge with stuff all over it is the best kind!!

Great post! So much fun to see the changes as they are happening in your home.

Did you notice that something has been missing from your blog? It might have appeared around the time I stopped commenting? I’m sorry about all that. I took a little hiatus from the blogosphere, but I couldn’t stay away too long. After a break, I had to come by again and see what you’ve been up to.

Glad that I did.


PS: Thanks for the birthday love!

I don't know what it is, but I love a nice corner cupboard! Sorry about the back and forthing to the home improvement store, especially since you had to take the monkeys with you. Soon it will be done, and you can bask in the glory that is your kitchen!

Thanks for all the home improvement love guys!

And Francesca, I did notice you weren't coming around lately! I was worried I had said something offensive...or worse, that I had become even more boring than before. Glad to have you back!
