In January I did a mini reno of our kitchen. Nothing big, took down awful wallpaper, patched the horrible drywall disaster (the previous owner patched the walls with masking tape under the wallpaper! and rather than running a cable in the wall, he channelled out the drywall, ran the wire, then, yep, covered it with packing tape!!!) removed wainscotting, installed new lights and baseboards.

At that time I took down the wall clock and decided not to put it back, it didn't really 'go' anymore. Every time I am in the kitchen, I still look at the blank wall to figure out what time it is!

part of my todo list:
redo floor
new cupboards
scrape stipple off ceiling
new counters
new appliances
new pantry
new sink and fixtures

But none of that will be happening today!

Oh my gosh! That was some handy man! I sure am glad he isn't my husband...what a lazy-ass! Did you take before and after pictures? I am sure it was a fine mess. Lol! I had a clock hanging in the kitchen for the longest and when I threw it out...it took me forever to stop looking up to check the time. I felt like a dork everytime...but we get over things.

That my dear is a nice long to-do list. Are you planning of tackling this all by your lonesome? You are truly an amazing woman!

Yep, some of the stuff they did to the house was really special. We've been here 9 years and we're still finding these treats.

I'd like to do most of it myself, hubby and I generally do the reno's together, but I told him the kitchen was my little project. We'll see how it goes. I'm good with most of it - may let him crawl through the attic to run the electrical for the lights *g*

Hope you're feeling well today.
