Its so funny how different the house looks now that its painted! One of my friends joked that I had that "creepy haunted house down the road" house that children think up crazy stories about. This was when it wasn't painted yet so the stucco made it look dark and creepy. LOL
Anyway...my cabinets came in also YAY so excited about that! The counters...not so much. Actually I loathe them. :( Im so angry at myself for listening to my husband to take them off and "we'll do them ourselves" Well they thought they would just change how much we owed at closing rather than altering the actual loan...nope doesnt work like that. So we still owe the same at closing...just our loan is for less. Which means $0.00 for replacing the ugly counters. I was hoping they were at least attactive and had rounded edges but no...sharp square edges and looks like a plank of particle board with ugly laminate over it. Im sorry I don't mean to sound like a spoiled brat (which is what my mom called me). I am EXTREMELY excited about the house and SO thankfull that this is finally happening for my family. But the kitchen was VERY important to me. I've work in some of the best kitchens for over 15 years now. Food and cooking is ,y passion and in my blood. I don't expect people to understand at all that don't share my passion. But to me, these inferior counters in my beautiful home, on my gorgeous cherry cabinets, feel like a plumber that uses a fisher price tool bench. Or an IT technician who has windows 98 on their computer, ...I know I know a bit far fetched...but you get my distain for these counters and my anger at myself because its my own fault. Sorry for venting once again. Its just so disappointing to finally see them and I hope I can put on my big girl pants and get over it soon!
Now for a couple pics...
|They dug up the curb today and put the stakes in for the new sidewalk YAY|
