The kitchen

Our kitchen is almost finished. Yes, that kitchen that we started painting over Labor Day weekend. David worked on it during his long weekend this week, and it is looking really great after the five coats of paint that we have put on the walls. Yes, five. coats. It only took us from Labor Day to Veterans' Day, which is pretty fast for us, really.

So it is pretty red right now. He has a bit of touch-ups left to finish in certain places, but I do not think that they will take him very long to complete. Notice how I am conveniently in the midst of the busiest week of my law school career now. Ha.

After the paint is finished and the blue tape is finally peeled off, we bought some knobs to add to our cabinet doors. You would not believe how excited I am about these dang knobs. They are super cute and I can't wait to show them to you whenever they come. Apparently they made their way to the closest airport last night and should be here sometime tomorrow.

After that, we will probably hang the curtain and finally give you some pictures.

Our next project? Painting the living room and the rest of the bedrooms. After that is finished, we will refocus on the bathrooms because I think we need to replace the hideous mirrors and light fixtures before we sell this place again.

Owning a house is so much fun!

I will be thrilled when that blasted kitchen is finished! As my co-worker Steve says, "Owning a home is both the American Dream and the American Nightmare." However, I also love owning and fixing up our own home.

I am amazed at how ambitious you guys are! I remember several times, waiting until we were about to sell our house before we made improvements. You are smart to make them now so you can enjoy them while you live there.
