Whew! No posts since December? What's up with that?!?
Let's just say things have been a little crazy the past few months and we'll move on... our family is currently in the midst of a kitchen remodel and I spent all of last weekend (alone, mind you) busting out a truckload of spackle, wood putty and a whopping 4 coats of paint/primer on every conceivable surface in the place. Looks really nice, though... however, the contents of our entire kitchen are now in the living room - microwave, toaster oven, shelves, plants, EVERYTHING. We've been reduced to eating in the den (not good) and all the "training" I did to keep people from eating in there is unraveling as we speak.
I should rephrase the term "remodel". This is essentially a lipstick job so I can have a kitchen that functions and doesn't have cabinets falling off the wall (and so we can actually SELL the house). Our contractor is building us some custom open shelving and I'm hoping it will make the tiny kitchen feel more open. We're going for a simple white-beadboard-chunky-craftsman-bracket-shelving-1920s-look. Trust me, I'll take some before/after photos because I know that description makes little sense.
I can't wait to get my pans out from behind the sofa...
