So I will switch to using my new iPad for this blog because it allows me to talk and text and it comes out much better than my iPhone. So the next part we are going talk about is the kitchen. I told you in a previous post and that I named some of the room so I can remember what I’m talking about and I like to refer to this kitchen as 1960 because that’s exactly what it looks like. It’s a nice size kitchen, U-shaped, it does have a laminate countertop with the laminate backsplash which I’m going to have to do something about. I don’t know what year that they started putting built in the desks directly into the kitchen. I never figured out what the concept of this was, except that maybe it was so while you were cooking dinner you could make sure your kids did their homework. Whatever the reason it was it was really dumb. But I’m happy that this built in desk area is there because with a little bit of tweaking and replacing the countertop there, I can make a pretty amazing coffee bar so that is what the plans are for that built-in desk area. The cabinets are going to get all painted with Sherwin-Williams enamel paint and that’s the paint that I told you cost $99 a gallon. Some more in a previous post I think it was when I open the blog I put a photo of the before and after cabin and I had done one . The floor in the dining room and the kitchen and down the hall is ceramic tile, and I believe I’m going to leave it ~although I don’t want to. There are just some things you can’t change when you’re under a budget. We will be adding a new 9 inch deep stainless steel sink with a single hole faucet with the sprayer built-in as well as a stainless steel dishwasher. There is not a dishwasher in the kitchen now, and I most certainly believe it is necessary for the quick sale if in fact that is the route we choose to go.
So I’m going to have to correct my name I have for this kitchen because I’m pretty sure this kitchen is like 1980 because that’s about the decade they started putting those desks in the kitchens around that time . Close your eyes and think Captain and Tenille “Do That To Me One More Time” because I’m about to take you in to 1980 with this kitchen. Take a really good look at it because the next time I post it on here you won’t recognize it ! Take a look at the upper left photo. You will see those two cabinet doors with the yellow tinted plastic in them, well I took one of them home and did it in the color the whole kitchen will be in so I’m going to re-post it here because it’s in a previous post.
There is so much change that is going to happen in this kitchen and in that dining room that I can’t even go into it in detail but if you haven’t followed me yet start following me so you don’t miss that update!!
