If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the Accidental DIYer has struck again. The last time I suffered this affliction, my unsuspecting living room floor went from this:
and ultimately to this:
It’s still not a completed project, as the hardwood floor needs sanding and refinishing, but that’s for another day.
This week, what started out as a plan to repaint my kitchen cupboards, turned from this:
So now my little paint project has escalated to a demolition of the area around my stove, cutting down the shelving to accommodate a new range hood, putting up new backing on the wall behind the stove, rebuilding cupboards on either side of the range hood, lining the old cupboards with wood veneer, cutting cupboard doors down to new size and hanging them, installing new counter tops (I’m thinking of trying to make my own concrete counter tops)… Oh, and some painting.
I don’t know how this happens, other than to say that my toolbox is bigger than my common sense.
If we were having coffee, I would find some polite way to cut our visit short so I could get at my project. I’ve got to figure out how to move the stove away from the wall. It’s so heavy I can’t budge it at all. I’m sure I’ll come up with something. It may involve redoing the flooring.
Oh, boy. Here we go again.
