Well, the kitchen is in! I do like it a lot. Goodness, even though this contractor was quite clean, what a mess that dust is, even getting into the back reaches of my place. I cleaned Friday night and all day yesterday, along with putting things in the cupboards. In spite of my good intentions, I did no culling. Over the next few months as I settle in and rearrange, I will doubtless get rid of a few things. But on to the pictures:
It took twelve hours to unpack, put things where I thought they might work, haul out the trash, and paint the woodwork in preparation for putting the curtains back up and moving more furniture. It’s been 28 years since I moved, and it’s all coming back to me…but a friend is coming over today to help with the last of it, at which point I will move back in. Then think about the painting, which shouldn’t take long, but for drop cloths and taping…
The tall storage cabinet is really nice, and I have just about filled it.
So other than a few pieces of furniture being moved and more trash taken out, I have only to think about paint. I’m looking at a tropical sea color or an Italian villa color. As I stare at the paint chips, I’ll undoubtedly decide.
If you’re local, the folks who did it are Cameo Kitchens in Falls Church. All this in 18 working days! With a Tuesday start and a Monday holiday it was 3 1/2 weeks on the calendar. I only wish they painted, too!
