Really there isn't
And that's why if a tornado were to strike my neighborhood - and I were mysteriously carried off the to the land of Oz - I'd happily stay there - living amongst the wicked witches.
And if the good witch Glinda came by with a pair of red glitzy shoes - I'd tell her to " take a hike "
Because flying monkey's would be a piece of cake next to these renovations.
I'm so in need of a yellow brick road now it ain't funny..................
Actually I might take the red shoes - they're kind of snappy - but I wouldn't click them 3 times.
It just wouldn't happen................
Kitchen cupboard doors are going on today -
and the floor gets laid - oh please let the floor be the right decision!!!
when I designed the kitchen cupboards - I had to put 2 smaller units on either side of the sink to ensure the sink would remain centered with the main window...........( don't you love my dry wall window? )
so I allowed for 2 " wine " racks to be fitted on either side
I could have used the storage instead to tell you the truth - but then everything would have been off symmetrically and that would have drove me nuts in the end.
We already have wine storage in the dining room but hey...............
John says - How many bloody wine storages do we need?
Suzan says - As many as the house will hold, after these renovations.................
Suzan says - I may have a couple installed in the bathroom too
That wood trim you see on the outer ledge of the counter top will be painted white - since I went with marble tiles I needed a " lip " to rest the tiles against.
I had the same issue for the cooking area - so I put in a narrow bookcase - for cookbooks - only on 1 side
I missed the sale by one day on a stove I desperately wanted -
Now I'm not willing to pay the regular price - so the old one will be installed until another sale happens
This was the one on sale - if I'm going with gas I want a stainless steel top - my current one is black on top and it always looks dirty - or dusty - or streaky..................
Then again I'm not even sure I want gas - for finish the stove is going to be the item that sends me over the top most likely
I'm also torn about an island - but in the end I'd like to try to incorporate my farmhouse table
Just have to figure out a way to give it more height - I thought of building a " pedestal " for it - any other suggestions?
It's too low ( table height )
You can see why it works so great in a small kitchen HERE
Oh and by the way - that buffet/hutch you see behind it? That's being brought into the new kitchen as well - since there'll be no upper cabinets I'm going to need it :)
Another crazy day here folks :)
On another more positive note - they're calling for 8 degrees on Saturday ( 46 degrees ) pretty nice when you consider that last week it was - 46 ( that WAS a minus sign in front )
The weather has been hitting extremes all across the board this winter - but I intend to take full advantage of these balmy temperatures lol
Have a great Thursday
