It's the little things in life, ya know? Rowen goes around saying "yeah, baby" whenever he loves something, and he throws in a little shoulder action for affect.
We're just now replacing these counter tops. I've hated them since we moved in, but as time went on I just stopped "seeing" them.
The busier we got the less motivated I was to start messing with stuff that didn't seem necessary. Silly me. Stuff like this is definitely necessary. Even if we never sell this house, I deserve to enjoy my kitchen. I'm in it several hours every day, for goodness' sake.
My awesome sleepers snoozed away this afternoon through the pounding and sawing, and viola, they were done! Thanks to my super great brother-in-law for helping a girl out :) Thanks to my handsome husband for spending two evenings this week tracking down the right pieces. It required several trips to Home Depot with all the kids while I was either working or out of town.
Why didn't we do this sooner?? Yeah, baby...I love the difference!
So, we're going to finish the floor this weekend (we need new kick boards, see the bare space between the floor and the cabinets?), and make a decision on the cabinets. See the two holes in each cabinet door? I removed the old hardware (except for the two doors that still have those pulls-don't ask why I left them). We've either got to fill those holes and stain that part of the door, or fill the holes and paint everything, or cover the holes with new hardware.
