So, now that the kitchen is done.....
Yeah. O.K. So, I'm dreamin' and a hopin' and a wishin'.
But isn't this kitchen just....? Just what I want for Christmas!
I wonder if it would fit in my stocking? Santa? Whatta you think?
I wish I knew where this picture was from so I could give credit where credit is due. If this is your kitchen, I LOVE it and I'd LOVE to give you credit...Or better yet, come over and thank you in person for creating such a place of beauty. (you must click on the photo to see it bigger!)
Well, just know that whilst I dream and hope and wish for a kitchen like this, the outside of the house is looking REALLY, REALLY good. I'm optimistic that the weather will be nice enough this week to get more stone up and then I can post the photos of it DONE!!!
Every time I look at the part that is done, I can't believe this is my house. The same barn-red house that we bought 5 years ago. The barn-red house that felt like a back-yard fort. HUGE and KLUGE'd. (rhymes with huge'd) LOTS of potential, but LOTS to do and re-do.
The original owner just kept adding on and building new space, but without real style or finish. Enter us. That husband and wife that loves a diamond in the rough. A challenge. A project of projects. Kind of like the old cars we collect. Buy 'em as ugly ducklings, and transform them into swans. It's very time consuming. Very frustrating. Very rewarding.
So, welcome to my dream kitchen. Come a share a cup of cocoa or tea.
