Over the winter of 1012/13 we had an opportunity to go on a Cruise. We had never done something like that before and we were really excited to try....but then on second thought, we figured that if we didn't go we could probably afford to build the kitchen for our house. That is what we decided to do. The next year would be our 20th wedding anniversary and we would do a bigger trip then.
Since he has a long history of good ideas, I was all ears!
They were antique copper and were only $0.59 each on a wild sale!!!!
One month later at the beginning of May, Steve and myself made a rare trip together without the kids to install the kitchen cabinets and do a little more painting.
We unloaded the trailer full of cabinets and I was concerned that our little place would seem so much smaller with all those cabinets installed. Interestingly, I found the opposite was true!!! The house felt bigger once the kitchen was in. I think the cabinets defined the space and of course hid all the storage items.
Generator and tools ready to get going. Our little Honda 5000w generator has built this whole place and never once given us a moment of trouble!
Steve hard at work! :)
I LOVED THE COLOURS!
Colour really effects me and green definitely makes me HAPPY.
I painted the upstairs *green*!
I really liked the drama of the dark fir next to the intense green.
One other job I did was put pine boards on this wall by the stairs.
Having one last look around before heading home.
