This has been a busy day with lots of people coming and going. Our new furniture was delivered this morning. I will share photos of that in another entry. Our handyman also came by today to get started on remodeling out kitchen. We are keeping the kitchen and doing some things to make it look very different. So here is what my kitchen looks like for a couple weeks while our doors will be gone to a paint spraying company. A friend said her cupboards would not look like this if someone took off her doors. Boy am I thankful I am organized behind those normally closed doors. *grins*
The doors are all laying stacked in the living room waiting to be taken to the painter now. Our handyman has put 3mm thick MDF panals around the doors which will give a very plain and modern dark teal door a country look after they are painted.
We are getting old Dutch wooden knobs and I cannot wait to see these painted and the knobs on. Here is a little closer shot but sorry for the glare.
Next we have to go pick out a new drainboard and sink. I already know what I am going to pick for a spigot. It is exciting to watch this come together. I will keep you updated on the progress.
Note to Karen ~ Welcome to my blog. I loved reading that your family immigrated from Holland. If you could email me (see my profile), I would love to talk more with you and give you my recipe.
Further note ~ Jos just talked to the painter who told us to come in tomorrow with the doors and trim. He is going to get it done next week. I have to go along to pick out the paint color and finish type. I am so excited to see these doors painted. I am happy to say goodbye to that teal color for good.
