I like them and they have totally inspired me in the direction of thinking about other (affordable) updates to the kitchen. I love the brightness in the room but am tired of the blah white walls and there’s wallpaper over in the other section (not pictured) that is past its decades. Also, I’d love to find a cuter storage hutch thing (all my cookbooks, homeschooling supplies, and board games are awesomely stored in there.)
Next on the to-do list: a new heat pump will be installed this month and then we’re ripping out the carpet formerly known as beige and putting in new flooring in the living room and in the basement. We go back and forth about Pergo vs. hardwood but one of these days we’ll make a decision. We want hardwood in the living room but I like having Mini’s toys here on the main level. Do you think toys and hardwood can peacefully co-exist?
Then there’s the other thing. While I’m most excited just to get rid of the old carpet and whatever nastiness is underneath that gives me nightmares, I want to pick out the right color of flooring. There are so many choices, it is unreal! Should we get a finish that matches our bannisters (a dark oak) or should we go lighter? How light? I have no idea about such things.
It took 10 years for us to change the kitchen light fixtures. I hope we make up our minds and get started on the flooring sooner than that! This is supposed to be fun, right?
