At least that's what I keep telling myself. We've had a mild case of the "project creep" around here. Actually, I haven't, but my husband sure has. All of a sudden we "need" to take down all of the plaster and lathe so we can insulate the exterior walls. Sure, it is economical in the long run, but, my countertop budget is getting smaller! We don't freeze in the Winter, it's just a little chilly. And we are replacing the windows next year. I didn't see the big deal - put on a sweater! Plus, all of this happened while I was keeping the kids away up North. And how convenient that I couldn't get in touch with my husband until it had already happened. That's what I get for leaving my husband and my electriciam alone - now they are in cahoots!
But, the good news...My stairs are supported! The supporting wall is a little bigger than I had wanted, but, I removed an 18" base cabinet from the island and now it all works.
See that...new drywall EVERYWHERE.
And look at how amazing the sun is coming through the kitchen window. It will be so nice to have that spilling into the entire main floor with that wall removed.
And finally...my inspiration page. If you check out my Pinterest page, you may have seen some of these images. But, for those of you who don't (and I honestly think you should!) here you go:
Anyway, the end is getting so near and I'm so excited to share it with you. In the meantime, I'm questioning my sanity. For someone who loves colour as much as I do, I can't believe I have just decided to paint white. It's the first time in my entire life and I'm feeling a little nervous. White cabinets, white backsplash, white walls - maybe all that's left are padded walls and a straight jacket? We'll know soon enough....
