Replace, mend, repair - it's all we seem to do in this house. When do I get to do the fun stuff?
We've been here almost 5 years and I desperately need to paint the inside. Plus I want to paint my kitchen cabinets using that Rust-Oleum cabinet restoration. ( this is not a promotional ad) I have these oak cabinets that BORE me. So I am going to paint and glaze them. After that I am going to paint my ugly white Formica-counter-tops with a counter-top-paint from Rust-Oleum. I can't see replacing the counter-tops right now. The paint will have to do. Then I need a new sink and faucet. That is where I will spend some money. I want one of those farm sinks (I think) I do need a new stove/oven but I am hoping it just needs to be cleaned. I'll hold off on that for later too.

Oh I have so many plans - that has been burning a hole in my head as I wait and wait and wait for the time that we can FINALLY do it. First, we do need to paint the living room and dining and kitchen area. The living, dining and kitchen areas share the same vaulted ceiling. This will get done this month!!! It is going to be a mess. I have to pack everything up like I am moving. Because after we paint the walls and ceiling, it will be time to do the kitchen.
I have ceiling fans - and so instead of replacing, I've opted to spray-paint them and the hardware. This was my parents home and it really needs an update that says "ME" instead of them. Its MY HOUSE now.
My kitchen is so ugly that I really hate to cook in it and clean it. I take no pride in my kitchen! It's funny too because I really do enjoying cooking and cleaning a kitchen and I have my cheap-food blog so I NEED a cheap-redone-kitchen!
