They key to not getting behind on blogging is to actually blog occasionally. So here I am--trying to make sure I don't get hopelessly behind again.
The kitchen remodel is over the hump (I think), where we're into more of the fun stuff now and over the worst of the not fun stuff. Things that have been accomplished:
--kitchen cupboard fronts taken off, sanded, washed with TSP, primed and painted,
--kitchen walls painted,
--new Ikea cupboards put up underneath the microwave and around the fridge,
--new stove was acquired from Idaho Falls,
--new carpet and laminate was picked out and ordered,
--and lights are now in and working in the music room.
Phew. I basically didn't do school with anyone but Miriam and Cowen last week because I was painting. I still have to do the second coat of paint on the cupboard boxes (bases?) in the kitchen then all the major painting will be done and we'll just have touch-ups left.
The pictures won't be in order, but it will still remind me, when I'm 90, of what we did and what it looked like before and after.
Next on the agenda:
1) putting a counter over the new cupboards under the microwave,
2) second coat of white paint on the cupboard boxes,
3) building bar,
4) doing the countertops,
6) putting the hardware on the cupboard fronts,
7) reattaching the cupboard fronts.
We're almost there!!
