Okay friends, here it goes, the amazing reveal!
Okay, maybe not. (Insert sad emoji here.)
Remember when I said the kitchen was going to be done by Christmas?
Well, we are 6 days away and no where near close to being done. Bah humbug.
I explained a few reasons why things are not getting done in this post. And while all of those reasons are completely valid, I left out a few more important reasons.
One. So many choices.
I love a great home renovation. I love making new spaces and decorating them in my personal style. But, there are just so many choices. For everything. So many things that I love. And while I have a specific style, there are still so many options.
For example, cabinet door knobs and drawer pulls. I had the picture in my head of exactly what I wanted. I found them online, and failed to order them the day I found them. A few days later, they were sold out. Everywhere.
I decided to go a totally different route. Although not the same ‘look’ as the other knobs and drawer pulls, I still loved option B. They arrived and I had heart eyes like those cute little cartoon characters. For the drawer pulls, only.
Notice I didn’t say cabinet door knobs. I loved them on the computer screen, not so much in real life.
They were too small and just didn't look quite right on the cabinet doors.
I thought maybe they would grow on me, like the paint color, but they didn’t. Back to the drawing board.
I LOVE option C. Let’s hope all of my cabinets are singing from the same hymn when it’s finished. Stay tuned. I promise I will share photos.
Two. Building new cabinets.
Building a cabinet seems like a fairly easy task. And honestly, it was. The hard part was getting the cabinet to match up (perfectly) with what is already there. I guess this is what you get when you use some things that are existing and build other things yourself. Alas, they are almost done. And I love it.
We are trying some out-of-box things. But that's why I love my husband. I have 'crazy' ideas and he always trusts that my vision will come to life. And it will be perfect. I know it will.
Three. More decisions.
If you've talked to me at all over the past month, I probably told you what we were going to do for countertops. Well, that decision changed about 10,000 times. We have been extremely indecisive about what to do. Alas, I think we've made a final decision. Or, I have made a final decision. Stay tuned. I promise I will share updates on this soon.
Can I change my completion date to Valentine’s Day? That might be do-able. Let’s hope it’s before then. It's no fun looking at a half completed kitchen when I know the true potential!
