You know what I'm talking about...the hype of the renovation has died down, things are functioning so the pressure is off, everything left to do you can live with undone. I am officially down in the dumps about my house again. And yes, this is normal. I say it to everyone else and I know it is part of the process, but it still sucks.
We are all familiar with it, it doesn't just happen with renovations. Life takes over, priorities change and we have to move on to the other facets of our wonderfully complex lives. Next thing you know, you're living with windows and doors with spray foam hanging out all over the place for two years and you don't even notice it anymore. And now you understand the multitude of candidates available for shows like "Disaster DIY" on HGTV. It just happens.
But, I WILL NOT let this slump get the best of me! Here is my cure - I am going to review the kitchens that inspired me to do this in the first place. They won't look like my kitchen, but, they motivated me to get to it and I'm hoping they will again. And I'm also hoping my husband and contractors have a look and feel inspired to wrap it up and make their work in my kitchen shine as well. In fact, they are going to get a special e-mail with a link to this page just to help out. They love it when I'm in this mode. They call it nagging, but I call it getting s*&t done!
Hope you enjoyed some of my fave kitchens and cross your fingers that I'll have some of my own beautiful kitchen shots to share in the VERY near future. Take care and connect soon!
