Saturday project


You know how it goes...you try to do one thing in your house and that leads to another and another....

Yesterday my brother and his wife very graciously gave my daughter a refrigerator as they were getting a new one. Jennie and Bobby are looking for a new home, so a refrigerator is much appreciated. Now I am not talking an old used refrigerator - this is a very nice, side-by-side stainless steel front Frigidaire. Since we can use the extra refrierator space, we decided to put it in my laundry room to use until they move into their own home. That meant I had to remove a large cabinet that was in the laundry room..which I decided to put in the kitchen. That meant I had to take the upright freezer out of the kitchen. Now this is an old freezer that you have to defrost and I was so happy to see it leave! So I called a used appliance place and they came and got it. Then the cabinet did not look good in the kitchen so it went to the basement. Now I have a big open space in the kitchen...so off we go to Lowes. We purchased a very nice cabinet to fill that space, so now I need to paint the cabinet which also means repainting all the other cabinets in the kitchen,,hmmm...which means repainting the walls too, right?

Since the cabinet did not have a counter top, and we really need a new countertop over the area by the sink, we will also be getting new countertops throughout the kitchen. In the interim, we removed another old cabinet I had in the kitchen, put that counter top on top of the new cabinet and today we are going to move our refrigerator into the space where the old cabinet used to be and then get another new cabinet to put where the refrigerator was.....and a set of cabinets to hang over the new cabinet......on and on and on...

Thanks Mike and Jeannie for the refrigerator, didn't realize I would get a new kitchen out of the deal!

You are right! It's just like a little snowball rolling down the hill! By the time it gets to the bottom it's hugh!

Lucky you! I love kitchen renovations. You'll have to show us how it all turns out.
