Besides the turquoise rug we really haven’t done much since then on the renovation.
I guess I should say we haven’t completed any tasks. We have been gathering info about products and appliances as well as ordering samples of finishes. It’s time to actually get started now though. Before that can happen we need a budget and before we have a budget we need a list of everything we I would like to accomplish.
I’ve know this for a while but have just been putting it off. It’s just not as much fun as gazing lovingly at countertop samples or strolling the appliance aisles wondering if side by side or armoire style is best.
So here goes…
Operation Bring Sunshine to the Kitchen
paint upper and lower cabinets
under cabinet lighting
new above range microwave oven
add cut out to pantry door
clean grout in tile floor
new hardware for cabinet doors and drawers
replace ceiling fan and light
Now that it’s all done on paper computer I can get to work researching prices for what I have in mind. Once I get an overall guestimation of what the renovation should cost, we plan to take that number and call it our “We Can Beat That” price. You know, kind of like what you do when you see the ETA on your navigation system. Our goal is to see how far below the number we can get while at the same time accomplishing everything on our list.
