Ready for Christmas Cooking NowThe blog has been pretty silent but for a very good reason. We finally got around to finishing the kitchen renovations.
Before we even moved in, I did a multi-coat refinishing of the cabinets, making the look much warmer. We also removed the bi-fold doors on the laundry area (they did not even open wide enough to let you get the dryer door fully open!) and painted the walls. A set of baskets to hold laundry and cleaning supplies eliminated any visual need for those doors.
After that, we waited for our previous home to sell, freeing up funds. This fall, we invested in new fridge and stove so the cook (me) is much happier now. Even more recently, we found someone to re-surface counters with new laminate, hiding forever that never-quite-clean orange.
