Excitingly, all the kitchen cabinets are now in. This installation was quite a fun time for me as I literally just sat back and watched the men work. Afterall someone had to make sure they did it right. He he he.
We are now waiting on the benchtop, which will hopefully be installed next week.
Remember our paint dilemma? Thankfully we finally decided on a colour, after umming and ahhing for what felt like forever. Sorry to those who voted for 'Hog Bristle' (for the name alone!) but in the end we went with Solver Vitesse and I love it! It's a soft grey-ey brown (or is that brown-y grey?) and looks terrific with our gorgeous Jarrah floorboards (which are being sanded and polished as I write).
Mr C and I are also extremely lucky to have some amazing friends & family members who have been helping in various ways throughout the process - and we thank them profusely for all the help.
In fact, one mate was so keen to come over and start painting that he ran out of his house wearing mis-matched shoes. A-huh. Don't believe me? Well...
Gotta love when they are that keen! Might have to remember that when we start the vegie garden. And the chicken coop. And the bathroom. And... uh oh.
That's it really. Bit boring I know but it'll be over soon. I promise to post the before and afters within the next few weeks. It's different, I assure you!
With all that going on, not much crafting has been happening, except for a few secret little projects in preparation for Donktober - due to start this coming Monday. I hope you are all ready for a month of ridonkulousness! I know I'm excited. :)
Ok, seeing as I'm in such a good mood, I'll leave you with a little sneak peek of the first project on offer.
Ooo lots & lots of lovely buttons. Come back on Monday to find out more. ;)
