The kitchen makeover is complete! It went surprisingly smoothly, and I am thrilled with the results. From orange wood to fresh white and pale oak. We completely gutted the kitchen back to the studs in some parts. The young man who worked for the transport company who moved us into the cottage mentioned that he would love to have all the wood in the kitchen if we ever renovated so, when they time came, I phoned him and he came and took it all. What a relief to not have all those demolition materials to have to eliminate.
I was the project manager and believe me, there is a lot more to managing a project like this than you would think. I had to get the timing of all the trades fine-tuned or there would be delays. Plus making sure that all the materials were delivered on time. There are a lot more details than you initially think that have to be taken care of. But I loved every minute of it and would do it again in a heartbeat. Which I will have to do because this is just stage one of the renovations and involved the kitchen, lounge and master bedroom.
Next week I will show you the lounge makeover and then a week later the bedroom. We will start the second stage after Christmas.
