Project Warrior Stories
Here are a few of our favorite tales of home improvement projects.
Our kitchen. My guess is I probably don't need to say much more for you to know how THAT could be going. BUT, since you insist
(ha ha), I will let you in on a fact: It started almost exactly a year ago, and my husband and I are still married! Our original
intent was to have it done within a month - prior to Memorial Day weekend. Well who knew (we did, but were in denial) that
putting in cabinets was really that hard. We did succeed at the cabinets pretty quickly, and had our floor professionally
installed. Then the project came to a halt. Through clever planning (ok, manipulation), I introduced my husband to granite
and how truly close in price it could be to other options. What I neglected to tell him is that the HD Store sale version
was not going to fly with me. So after some back and forth, I comfortably agreed on plywood for as long as was necessary to
save and get what I wanted. Well.... now it's almost a year later, and my husband can't stand it anymore. Despite the lack
of fund to do this, he has prompted me to go and pick granite. So on the credit it goes and we have granite on it's way (any
day now). I am so excited to be closer to a finished kitchen even though the backsplash and finishing work is still needed
that I can hardly wait. Ironic how I was completely content with the plywood yet now, I am beside myself with anxiousness.
The kitchen as is is so much better than the original, it's all a-ok!
