Under Construction: Overhauling a Farm Kitchen

February 21, 2013

Hi. Remember me? I’ve been trapped under something heavy. A kitchen.

We are in the middle of kitchen construction con Queso.

I can’t wait to show you the final results – heck, I can’t wait to see them myself.

In the meantime, I’ll be shopping. And talking a lot about the process. … after all, the only way to get through a traumatic experience is to talk your way through it … so sayeth the billion dollar psychoanalysis industry. Plus, a kitchen remodel is like being pregnant or starting a business – when you are in the middle of it, it’s all you can talk about.

What? You don’t normally have scooters in your kitchen? Weird.

So saddle up friends – let’s overhaul a kitchen!

    Looks like it’s got lots of potential! Can’t wait to see the results! And… wow, cool “Granola Bars, Potatoes, Onions” bin. Where did you get it? I NEED something like this, badly.

    Those ovens are so great. I adore mine – I don’t even miss the big wall ones anymore. Heat up to 400? NO PROBLEM – give me 2 minutes.

    (Imagine how excited I could get over a new DISHWASHER? Party.)

    Can’t wait to see the final results! Where did you get that wooden storage bin sitting on the counter? That’s awesome. I need (want) one.

    Man, I guess I’m not the only one wanting to know where you got those cool wood bins on your counter. Since I clearly missed it on One’s King Lane, do you know the name of the brand? So cute!

    Ohh good luck. I’m excited to see the result! We are about to build a new home so I’m big into anything home talk right now.

    Damn. Was trying to wean myself from One King’s Lane but you’ve sucked me right back in.

    My thoughts are with you – looks like you are able to use your kitchen so far…I went 5 months without a kitchen/tv room/downstairs bath. It was so stressful…and yes, like you say, it was all I could talk about. I spent alot of time on the kitchen board at Gardenweb.com where you can easily find another person at 3 in the morning to give you an opinion on your tile choice. It is all worth it in the end…GOOD LUCK!!
