So, we're in the middle of renovating our kitchen. If I had any money or sanity, I would pack up the family, hire a contractor and decorator, and move out of town for three months.
I have no money, and I'm maybe a little bit crazy, so our family is living through Renovation '08- The Kitchen Months. The top photo shows Mr. Fix in the doorway leading to the kitchen. The red room is the dining room. The bottom photo shows the view from the kitchen looking into the dining room. There used to be a stove and dishwasher on that wall.
My general contractor has to live with me (that would be hubby Mr. Fix), my decorator has another full-time job already (I'm the decorator), and the decorator's assistants (Daughters #1 and #2) are more of a pain in the butt than helpful. *sigh* At least I had time to find lighting fixtures this week. It became very clear to me that this is actually happening to me right now, and that I can't postpone what's already in motion. Exciting, liberating, and frustrating all at once!!!
And then Mr. Fix tore down the wall separating the dining room and kitchen. It now looks like this:
The vision for the finished project is all in my head, friends. It includes new stainless appliances, a center island, and many nights entertaining the people who put up with us during the wacko days of renovating.
