We had the Pittsburgh kitchen’s reno timeline shrink a little bit. Originally we thought we’d have 9 days to execute the renovation, but that actually included 2 travel days. So that’s really only 7 days. But then, there will be 2 days of styling, shooting and filming commercials of the final space. So then it was 5 days. But one of those days will be shopping for supplies and installing appliances….did you hear that massive gulp?! We’re sweating a little tiny bit, but we’re also very good under pressure. It’s going to be a wild ride! We finalized the cabinet color, we’re going with Semi-Handmade’s Gray Shaker cabinet with white “marble” floors. This week, I found this 12″x24″, really amazing Luxury Vinyl Tile (pictured above) that looks just like marble, that we’ll be using for the floor. We might keep it as is, or cut it into thinner vertical strips and lay it in a herringbone pattern. Either way, we’re excited about the price, the install time and the durability.
Other fun finds this week!
I actually hate when people say “_____, you’re doing it wrong.” Because am I? Or am I just doing it differently than how you think I should be doing it. But then actually, Bananas–I’ve been doing it completely wrong!
Have you tried this Kolor game? My highest score is 599 and then my eyes cross.
This simple plant stand revamp made me weak in the knees! Sarah does it again!
Have you been following HONY’s pediatric cancer series? Every story has been breaking my heart, but Max. Max’s mother. I completely lost it. We donated for Max. And we bought Max’s favorite story for our girls.
There’s a great sense of happiness and pride that we’ve received from buying a home, so when I read an article like this, on a fairly large platform, I feel sad. Also, never (!) go for the “small house on a big lot in the best part of a bad area.” Worst house, best area is where it’s at.
Lastly, thank you all for your kind words and well-wishes for our family this week. It’s been an emotional, anxiety-ridden week, and every comment has helped. Stay safe and hope you have a great weekend!
