During

I was hoping to get all the way from "before" to "after" in the Kitchen Remodel in a Weekend project, but I'm still at "during".





Painted the wall kind of a split-pea color. Got the upper cupboards put together. Swapped the location of the fridge and the big drawer cabinet. Cleaned up as best I could. Found the ibuprofen somewhere. Am now immobilized by tired and achy.



Several of life's basic kitchen necessities are still in the bathroom. Cupboard doors need attaching, cupboards need hanging (that's the hardest part), loads of stuff needs putting away, and there's a mountain of IKEA cardboard on my porch awaiting recycling.



So, getting there. It's going to be a couple more evenings. Off to the Bathtub of Resuscitation for me.

Now you know why I wasn't as enthusiastically engaged in our Dollhouse chatwatch last night as I usually try to be: exhaustion, aches and pains! But I'm excited to have gotten this far on a project that I've had in mind for at LEAST ten years. Amazing what a sister with a giant pry-bar can inspire one to!

Yeah, it's a good grinder. It was one of those rare bargains you sometimes find on a thing you actually want. As you may be able to tell, I take my drug habit coffee pretty seriously.

WhooHoo! It's really happening! I can't wait to see it in person and wonder at the fabulous job you have done! You are SO going to love the new look!

It's pretty makeshift at the moment. Helen talked me into just going for it piecemeal--not in my comfort zone! But I'm already enjoying the new layout, and it's good for me to break out of my comfort zone.

Oh man, I wish you were here too! My left shoulder is like a steel plate.

When you visit, you will hopefully see the results and not the chaos of this change.

Thanks! I am very stiff and sore today. But, as they say, it's a good pain. :D
