Yesterday I dared to struggle.
Today I dare to win.
|Check out that dark blue wallpaper and formica counter|
|Why did they put knobs in the middle of the doors? Also, only half the sink worked.|
THAT was the easy part.
The cabinets needed to get a fresh coat of white paint, which I was perfectly capable of doing. HOWEVER, the doorknobs situated IN THE MIDDLE OF EACH DOOR. had to go, and the white paint needed to be stripped from the hinges.
|Deconstruction was fun (but, I left the house)|
He removed the knobs and stripped the hinges. He puttied the old holes, and I painted all the cabinets. In the meantime, a plumber came in and disconected the ancient sink, useless faucet, and disgusting garbage disposal.
Hubby and son made quick work of removing the old sink and countertop (circa 1977). 4 days later, the counter and sink were installed, but the house was filled with the horrid smell of glue. I took the boys to lunch as we aired the place out.
|Silestone Quartz Countertop in Blue Sahara|
The struggle to choose the countertop, painting the cabinets, painting over the old wallpaper, paying for everything, and having limited use of a kitchen for 5 days was worth it.
|I still need to choose a backsplash, but my kitchen works!|
