Thought I would pop in here for a bit so’s y’all don’t think I croaked or somethin’. I have lots to say but not enough time.
PD and I are all caught up in redoing our kitchen. We’d started awhile back when he first started feeling not-too-bad and tore out the suspended ceiling. Since then we took some cupboards out and commenced upon stripping them to prepare for painting or staining or whatever. We’d decided to paint them white and are now in a bit of a limbo as I’ve decided that maybe I wouldn’t like them white after all. PD restrained himself admirably when I ‘fessed up. I know he would have preferred to open a can of WA* on me. 😉
So now the ceiling above the old ceiling is gone now too. Right down (up?) to the joists and second-story floor boards. It’s weird how high up it goes. We got rough wood planking to do the ceiling and haven’t decided yet whether or not we want beams. It will depend on what that might look like with the ceiling fan, which is black.
Our main dilemma is what to do with the back wall. We are taking out an outside door. First we talked of replacing it with a window but now are thinking of a wall of cupboards above a counter with cupboards below. I thought it would be nice to have a window where we would put the pub table and stools (which we haven’t purchased yet) but we’re not putting the table there after all so we are leaning toward cupboards now. There is a space problem at each end that we need to work out. But I’m tired thinking about it for today and tired breathing plaster dust and looking at pots and pans and assorted small appliances all over the dining room so I think I’ll opt for bed.
One more thing… I found something cool today here. Up above here on my (WordPress) dashboard there is a little drop-down menu in the upper right hand corner where you can select “random post” (or something like that) and it will take you to a random posting in your archives. That’s fun. But that will have to wait for another day. Have a good day.
