Renovation Update: We Are Horrid At Decisions!!

I *think* we've committed to countertop, flooring, and cupboards...

The much improved flooring has been purchased! We lucked out at a Home Depot flooring sale. In total our new flooring costs $40. We are thrilled!

New counter-tops have yet to be purchased, but they have been decided upon! It's a different colour than the flooring which was a deliberate choice. I thought it would make it more visually compelling.

I'm replacing a couple of the cupboard doors with glass ones since open shelving is not an option for us.

We are negotiating heavily on this beautiful sink, I am convinced I can't live without it. This sink completes me.

Next week we renovate! Have I mentioned we have no clue what we're doing? Our friend yesterday said his mother told him renovations often lead to divorce. With that kind of optimism in the event of a divorce, he inherits Doug. I don't do well in chaos, and Doug doesn't do well indoors for long periods of time. Please keep an eye on our national news for updates on this coming catastrophe. CBC has been alerted.

  8. Can you take the sink with you when you divorce? ;-) Only kidding, you'll be just fine, your kitchen is going to look fantastic (from what I can make out so far) and traumatic experience of decorating is going to strengthen your bond ;-D Love from London x
