I forgot how much I love to cook!

Okay, it’s been a while since I posted that my appliances were coming, and I realize I never updated anything after that.  So, here’s the first of a multi-update barrage.  Appliances.  My kitchen.  I love them both.  Continue reading

Tile and Trim

Oh goodness… It’s really been a month since my last blog post? Jeez…sorry about that.  Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess, or at least when you’re insanely busy.  So many things have changed since the sanding of the floors.  First off, my countertops finally arrived and were installed.  They’re absolutely perfect and look very high-end for laminate.  If you don’t look too closely (there’s no getting around the dark lines on the edges or the seam in the corner) you could be initially convinced they’re granite!

I’m on the downhill slide…I think.

It’s been a busy few weeks since I finished up my painting stay-cation.  Things really seem to be starting to move fast, and the progress is getting more and more visible.  Remember how we had just gotten my cabinets when I last left you?  Well, the last few that were out of stock came in, and my parents brought them out to my house.  Since we haven’t done the floors yet, (which is starting to give me anxiety), dad took his belt sander to the floor where the cabinets would sit so we don’t have to worry about getting some big professional sander right up to the foot of the cabinets when we get to that step.  Then the first of the cabinets were set in place.  In the kitchen reconfiguration, I’m torn between feeling like I’ve lost cabinet/counter space by having a dead wall and feeling like I’m 100% fine because there will be plenty of continuous countertop and I have an entire pantry for extra storage.  In all honesty, I probably have way more cabinet space than I could even possibly fill right now.

50 Shades of White…One Shade of Pink

For the past week I have been on vacation.  Well…staycation I guess.  As the title of this blog suggests, there was not, in fact, a vacation for me this year.  Instead I spent the better part of 10 days priming and painting all my new drywall.  I finally solved the dust issue with the vacuum bags from Menards.  Using the newer shop-vac really helped me power through the rest of the wall dust.  I never thought I’d be vacuuming my walls…but I did.  And it worked.  And then it was on to the primer.
