I've blogged previously about the progress we've made so far on our new to us home.
We've lived here 7 1/2 months now.
The living room, dining room, kitchen nook, bedrooms and my home office are done.
What's on the back burner at this time is updating the cabinets and countertops in the kitchen,
and the cabinets, countertops, and flooring in the bathrooms.
What's on the front burner right now is yard work!
Somehow, when we walked into this house when it was on the market,
we fell in love with the house and forgot our plan to buy one with a smaller and easier to maintain yard!
(Look closely and you can see we've not put the trim around the bottom of the cabinets since we put in the hardwood floors.)
We opted to keep the oak cabinets because they are completely solid wood, even the shelves inside,
which is pretty much impossible to find anymore.
What I'd like to do is either strip and restain the cabinets in a lighter driftwood look stain,
or paint them. (Ideally, we'll hire this done.)
I'm also looking into an idea for new countertops that is economical.
More on that later.
Meanwhile though, I'm so grateful for what we have, 1990's oak and all.
It's wonderful to have all of this room and all of this light!
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Hope you have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a safe and BLESSED weekend!
