|the current kitchen!|
But the more I thought about new cabinets the more I wanted them. I really hate my kitchen cabinets, I didn't have the money or time when we first moved in 15 years ago to do any renovations. So I am going to do this, slowly, but the change will happen.
I am negotiating now with the 2 designers, on price and on what I want. I did want a breakfast bar but the lack of space and originality by the designers is making me think that the breakfast bar will remain in my head only. Speaking of lack of originality the designers also lack practicality, none of them have thought about where to put my microwave and ironing board.
The internet has been a very useful tool to go seek out answers to questions in my head about material, price and what to expect from a contractor. The (non) boyfriend has been extremely useful here too (yes I am still with him and we are attempting to evaluate things).
So the plan is to get furniture from stores, or those teak stores in Dempsey, for the computer desk and files and to just do the kitchen cabinets.
It will be hard work to sort the cupboards and throw away all the bits of cutlery, pots and pans, dishes that I haven't used or don't want but I guess its a project that will keep me occupied and out of trouble.
