I am discovering that a DIY Kitchen Makeover with an 18 month old is even more challenging than I expected. I know, duh, right?
I did get the cabinets all painted. Hoo-stinkin’-ray! Here’s a peek:
A bajillion times better than the orange oak I had before.
The beadboard is up and painted. We just need to add the trim and the baseboard at the bottom.
Thankfully I got all 24 of my baseboards painted before the whopper of a storm hit and dropped a foot of snow.
The trouble? I can’t install them. Nap time is out because the air compressor and nail gun are loud enough to wake the dead. And while awake, Rachel is terrified of the noise. So I have to wait until my boys or hubbie are home to distract her in the basement. Unfortunately, what with work, school, jobs, sports, and extra curricular activities, they are not home much. So my baseboards sit lined up in the garage, patiently waiting.
Me, I am waiting too. But not quite so patiently.
