We came back from vacation on Saturday and on Sunday started getting everything ready for a new floor in the kitchen. That meant everything had to be moved out. All appliances and everything. I have my refrigerator in my den. My island in the living room. It is a mess. The stove is on the carport because we are getting a new one. You can hardly walk thru any of the rooms.
Just take a gander....
BUT...I know it will all be worth it in the end.
The floor was put down on Wednesday. Just our luck, they were one piece short. AND the floor is special order so that ONE piece had to be ordered. It should be here and finished tomorrow. That has kept up from moving the fridge or anything else back in there.
We also had the cabinets painted. So...that meant all of the counters had to be completely cleaned off.
More junk to add to the mess.
They were already full from moving out the other furniture so all of that was just transported to another spot. Do you get my drift? Do you understand how messy my house is right now? Ha!
This is the kitchen before. The red walls stayed.
I love them. But the cabinets did get painted.
This was the floor that is now totally different.
I can't wait to share with all of you the finished product.
The new stove and microwave will be here tomorrow. I am so excited.
Although everything was moved out and is now in such a mess, I feel like I have a blank canvas to start from. How exciting!
There is also a huge project going on in our back yard. You all know Papa "can do anything" in our eyes. If it's broke, we call Papa before we panic. If it needs building, we call Papa. He holds us together.
So, when Ms. Prissy decided she wanted a playhouse who did she tell? Papa. It's been in the works for a while, but several weeks ago, Papa called from work and asked if we wanted to get started. He had a 12' by 8' pallet that would be a perfect floor.
I was just as excited as Darbee. YES we said and the planning began.
For a while, it was her "stage" to dance and sing on. She loved that.
Yesterday, Papa planned a work day. He wanted to get started. Thankfully, the rain held off all day and a lot was accomplished.
Darbee Rae was so excited. She was eager to help too.
She put on her work apron, got her markers and pencils and put them in the pocket, took a Coke in case she got thirsty and tucked her tape measure in the other pocket and out the door she went. Ready to work.
She was a big help too.
She held the tape measure for Papa
She marked off measurements
And hammered some more.
All of the walls are up except on the front and the roof has to be done.
It won't be long!
She already has it all planned out in her head.
She wants it pink and green and cutesy. Nothing "prinitive."
It will definitely be all girl.
I can't wait to decorate it with her.
I think I am just as excited as her.
So...a lot going on here but so much fun.
I hope all of you are having a happy Sunday.
Until next time...
