And trying to organize these 30 year old cupboards was near impossible. The kitchen has been gradually falling apart over the last 3 years that we've lived here. Plus, may I point out, that we haven't had a dishwasher.
So my friends...this is what I did last Monday while I was waiting for my husband to get off work...
And this is how my children felt about it. Poor things...
And this is how it looked the next day after my husband got his hands on it!
It's actually been really cathartic tearing out our ugly kitchen. I liked it. A lot.
Now we're in the process of putting it back together. Thanks to Ikea, we're doing it ourselves. Except for some electrical work and the counter tops, which we don't feel confident to do ourselves.
So think of me as I feed my children yet another meal in our poor living room around the coffee table or take them out to yet another fast food restaurant (wishing that I could instead go to the local stir fry place without the complaining that would accompany it...we will soon though. I want a stir fry!)
