The trickle down effect of the new kitchen, is that we would like to use two of the sets of drawers from the kitchen to raise the counter to a height where I could actually fold close on it.
This means taking off the wallpaper sooner than I had planned. We used a steamer and I took off every square inch of that wallpaper! It was a terrible job!
We are painting the room a very pretty color called chai from Home Depot. We have the left side done, so whenever our contractor is ready they can take out the two small sets of drawers on the right, and raise the counter. Then we'll finish painting the right side!
It was also invigorating to clean under the washer and dryer! It feels good to be dust bunny free!
