Success in the Kitchen but a Failure in the Living Room?

kitchen without cabinets

One week ago.

Tuesday’s kitchen install went well (at least as far as I can tell). The crew finished up later in the day and I didn’t have enough light to snap good pics because there are only two functioning lights in the house. I stopped by this morning to take some shots and bask in the glow of my new kitchen.

Oh, did I bask.

Take a peek at my smooth ginger cabinets.

I was calmed by the thought of how smoothly the install went, delighted at our good fortune as we move ahead, and eager for the counter top installers to come out and measure taking us to the next phase.

And then.

And then on my way out of the house, passing through the living room, I noticed something, something bad, that did not belong on our freshly painted ceiling. More about that tomorrow.

The giveaway for two passes to Sky High Sports is still running. Have you entered?

    The cabinets look magnificent! Fingers are crossed that whatever is on the ceiling isn’t a total disaster…

    Also! I owe you an email. 🙂
