Take three

{our kitchen circa false alarm number 2}

You might be wondering what our kitchen looks like now since I announced two weeks ago that it was set to be demo'ed the next day.  Well, it pretty much looks just like the photo above.  Yep, the cabinets didn't make the truck on week one and then our crew was busy on week two.  So we've spent two weeks getting dishes from the dining room, pots & pans from the basement, and appliances (quesadilla maker anyone) from Jack's room.  Inconvenient, but honestly, okay.  We had water and a sink and a fridge and all our things accessible...not too bad (but very drafty with those cabinet fronts removed). 

So, against my better judgement, I'm going to announce the current plan which hopefully will go off without a hitch!  Tomorrow is demo, Wednesday is drywall, Thursday I paint walls (Jack's holiday sing is early afternoon, so if I'm covered in paint, please don't judge), Friday is cabinet install, and Saturday appliances arrive.  I'm honestly not sure at all about the smaller projects (like tiling and sink installation, etc.), but I'm thrilled that we're looking at only one week without a kitchen!

Our countertops will take awhile though (like 4 weeks or so) as they won't order until the cabinets are in and they can measure accurately.  So we'll we rocking plywood counters for Christmas.  Does anyone know where I can find vinyl tablecloths?  Thought it might make the wood a little safer and easier to clean up. 

Everybody cross your fingers, okay?  I really want a big mess in my kitchen tomorrow!

CROSSING!!! I really want your kitchen messy tomorrow too!!! I have a nice vinyl halloween table cloth you can borrow...it's huge..not exactly Christmasy, but... maybe the $ store? target? and if you need an oven or anything else this week, don't hesitate to ask, k? Like a babysitter while you paint? by the way, hope you are covered in paint so I can chuckle :) Good luck!!!
