The house retrospective: Day 8. The Kitchen
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/connect-the-dots-2/
When we first bought this house, everything was still in it from when it was a B&B and that included the kitchen. No real perishables, but it was pretty gross. And no cupboard doors on any of the cupboards. And no drawers. NO drawers. Who has a kitchen with no drawers?????
So, the first thing we did, with the very appreciated help of friend Judy, was to clean out the kitchen and clean it up as best we could. Got rid of everything.
Then we had to have cupboard doors made, and some drawers! So, we found a carpenter to make them, and then eventually I painted them.
We painted the whole kitchen too. Gold and red – it does look really nice!
And then we moved in – well, technically we weren’t done painting the kitchen until after we move in. I don’t need to remind you of how lazy I am with getting painting done…
And then, the final touch for now was the glass in the cupboard doors. I admit I had gotten used to reaching in through the doors for glasses, etc., but they do look finished now!
And just to round things out, here are a couple of pictures I took just minutes ago:
Someday we’ll paint the ceiling, hang the two new (well, used but cool) lighting fixtures, and get the windows redone as double-hung (getting rid of the gross aluminum). But that will come!
