FROM THIS................................................................................................................TO THIS!! TA DA!!
So, after almost ten days of having non-stop tradesmen in the house, things are almost back to normal.
I love, love, love my new kitchen, timber flooring & my gorgeous new carpet. Everything goes beautifully together.
But what a nightmare. Girls, if you are thinking of renovating, I reckon you should just buy a new house (lol). Even though we had no choice in the matter, I would definately leave home next time & just leave 'em to it!
We've built a couple of times, but actually living in it & having most of your possessions piled up in one room all the time (almost 2-1/2 months) is not recommended.
Now anyone who has been through it knows that nothing ever goes right, eh.
The tradies didn't turn up on time, which is in the rules, I know.
The kitchen removal people banged on the wall so hard, that things on the bathroom wall (behind the kitchen) started jumping off into the bath. Luckily nothing broke.
The new cooktop, when unpacked, had a huge ding in it. New one delivered next day, after much yelling from me down the phone. Not like me at all really (hee hee).
The kitchen cabinet manufacturers forgot 2 doors (oops, we forgot to count them).
The flooring man arrived with the wrong colour timber - red oak! Can you imagine that with Raspberry coloured benchtops. ERK!!! So, more yelling down the phone (I'm getting good at this by now) & another express delivery, from the boss this time. I must be getting REALLY good at it. So, Pale Oak arrives & it's right.
At least the carpet was the right colour (lol).
Anyhoo, I'm pretty sure it's over, all the rubbish has been taken away & I've unpacked lots of my pretties, but still a way to go. Maybe I've got too much stuff? Nah, no way (giggle).
My shelving above the fridge, not finished decorating it yet, still needs more stuff (lol) & lovely timber flooring.
My dining area, don't ya just loooove the carpet.
No more concrete, oh happy day. My poor old arthritic knees are very thankful.
So, I hope you all like it. I know Raspberry coloured benchtops aren't for everyone, but they look gorgeous with all the white. And did you notice the Raspberry Roses on the cabinet handles, what more could a girl want.
Happy Weekend Everyone.
Hugs, Coll :-}
