It will be two years in March since I moved into this house. I love this house. Its an old house that needs work, but I love it and love the neighborhood. I have had to be extremely patient with any updates I've made to the house because of time, money, and well, money. My husband would laugh at the fact that I used the word patience because I'm sure he doesn't think I've been patient at all. Well, whatever, I can't help it. I love to cook and I want my kitchen to be nice and I'm tired of hand washing all of our dishes (no, we don't have a dishwasher).
Over the past two years I have torn down some cabinets, refaced my existing cabinets, made a butcher block for my island and bought a new refrigerator. But now, my friends, its time to go a little further. Its time for me to get my DIY on like I never have before. I'm talking concrete countertops, backsplash, floating shelves...all the things. Hell, I might even try to DIY the plumbing. Don't worry, I already got a quote for that because I have a good idea of how that will probably turn out. Either way, its going to be a fun learning experience...and hopefully I get a pretty cool kitchen out of it.
