Let’s get this party started! Today at about 10.30am the kitchen rip out team will be here, they will make noise, there will be dust and they will rip out this old kitchen in no time. And tomorrow I will start blogging and sharing each day of the renovation. And all things going well on the 18th October I will have one beautiful white kitchen……..a mixture of hamptons and english country style. To say that I am excited is an understatement…..
Now I’m a little sentimental when I look at these photos and I was emptying the kitchen drawers (oh man that is one crappy job because of the crap that gets stuffed in those bottom kitchen drawers). But I found all of the original booklets and receipts for the kitchen appliances when the kitchen was installed back in the early 70′s.
We bought the house from the original owners so everything was still there and I liked seeing the original owners name and the fact she didn’t even put the house number on the docket for the fridge because the house opposite hadn’t been built yet.
But it’s time to move forward. I’m sick of wiping away the chipboard flakes from the kitchen counters each morning or finding them in my jug or thermomix. I want to break out into Andrea Bocelli, ‘tiiiiiime tooooo say goodbyeeeeeeeeeeeee……….’.
So let the kitchen renovation begin……..and please let everything stick to budget and spare me any unforeseen dramas!
