Here's where we stand right now:
~the cabinets (as you may recall) have been ordered, and we have a delivery date of March 18th.
~the electricians have been by to give us an estimate
~the wainscot on the ceiling has been torn down, as has one bank of cabinets
Here's what needs doing with some haste:
~purchase dishwasher and microwave/hood
~pack up all but the most essential of kitchen items
~contact plumber for estimate
Here's what needs to be done at some point:
~decide on countertop
~decide on a sink
~choose back splash (no real rush here)
~tear down all but the most essential cabinetry
~decide whether to replace the floor tiles (leaning toward "Hell, yes," in no small part because the new tiles would be free. FREE!)
That's not much of a list. Clearly, I'm missing a lot of very important items. This is overwhelming. Too. Many. Decisions. I am going to take this opportunity to weed out items that have been languishing in my crappy old cabinets for the past four years. If I haven't used something in that time, I'm unlikely to do so.
Don's cleared most of the debris from the kitchen, so I ought to spend some quality time with bubble wrap and Rubbermaid bins. Pic spam soon!
I'm adding a wishlist.
~new refrigerator (unlikely)
~new dinnerware (pretty darned necessary)
~new flatware (also necessary)
~window treatments for the windows and huge sliding glass door
~new sliding glass door (hahahahaha!)
~reset windows (if my brother-in-law says it's easy, this gets bumped to the real list)
~for my kitties to be so wowed by the entire endeavour that they all get along
This just in: I have an assload of wine glasses.
