Work in Progress: The Kitchen (Part 1)

The loss of my beloved camera threw me way off. I’ve had to readjust to life with my mom’s camera that has she let me borrow until I can replace my own. So, sorry for the absence and here’s where I left off…

I picked up some paint samples and painted a few “test spots” around the kitchen to see how I liked the color. I’m very pleased and can’t wait to get started…

(Please ignore the basket of clean laundry waiting to be folded.)

We’re planning on painting the walls Ashley Gray and painting the cabinets along with the pine wall white. We also plan to put up 2 – 3 (almost) wall length open shelves on the pine wall. This will give me plenty of space to house all of my books and display some pretty dishes and other odds and ends.

During one of my trips to Home Depot on Saturday, I decided to pick up what we needed to move a phone line into the kitchen. When Patrick got home I (very sweetly) asked if he would help me move the desk into the kitchen. Since I already had what we needed, he decided to go ahead and moved the phone line as well! It cost us approximately $7 as compared to the $85 the phone company wanted to charge us. As of right now, the internet isn’t working properly, but it has nothing to do with my husband’s handywork. We ended up having to call the phone company when we first moved in because the DSL light kept blinking. They came out and fixed the problem but I guess he just fixed it for that one jack and not the whole house. Fortunately, we won’t have to pay them to come out again.

Here is the mini kitchen office…

The next step for the kitchen is sanding and painting. Its going to be a big job. I have a feeling it will be a while before we get started on that since Patrick wants to get the outside of the house painted first. However, I wanted to go ahead and get an idea what the space would feel like with the computer in there… in case I didn’t like it and wanted to change my mind. I have to say that I love it!
