Our kitchen renovation project begins in just 48 hours. Am I excited? Yes! Am I filled with dread? You betcha. Just now, Muttka and Kittka are blissfully ignorant of the fact that their world will be turned upside down for the next few weeks. We’ll muddle through the noise and confusion somehow. Meantime, let me show you the new cabinets and appliances that arrived the other day!
The delivery crew from Lowe’s Home Improvement Center probably assumed the gargantuan kitchen gear would go in my garage until installation time.
Ha ha ha.
I don’t have a garage.
Here’s the “Lazy Susan” corner cabinet. It makes a dazzling presence in my entrance hall.
And here are just some of the new upper cabinets and shelves, loafing around in the dining room.
Still more cabinets — one of which will house a pair of wall ovens — are lingering in the north end of the music room. Who knew that corrugated brown would pair so nicely with red window hangings? You might like to copy this decoration scheme in your own home.
On another note, I have lots of work to do before the kitchen renovation begins. I’m making a batch of spice cookies today. And tomorrow, I’m signing copies of my cookbook and serving the aforementioned cookies at the Kinderhook Memorial Library (4PM; please stop by and say “hello” if you’re in the area).
I must remove the plates, silverware, glassware, sacks of flour and tins of whatnot from the cabinets that are going bye-bye. Where to temporarily store these items, I haven’t a clue.
May I borrow your garage?
