You've asked for it... so here it is...
Some of you may remember pics of my shagadelic kitchen from a meme I did last June.
For all of you who don't remember or didn't read me then... here ya go. Shield your eyes... the 1970 horror of it all may be too much for your delicate constitutions...
Okay... I warned you... see the little designs in the Disco countertop?
Here is one more to show the horrid detail of the cabinetry.
See the ugly gold glittery details? The frightening Harvest Gold of the no longer working compactor/garbage can?
I hope you can sleep tonight. Remember, you asked for it!!!! LOL
I will be happy to show you pics as the work is happening. Supposedly, it will be a quick job, but in this 'money pit' we call home, anything can happen!
For instance, I forgot to share this gem with you.
Friday morning my dad went to put in a load of his and mom's laundry at 5am, just before he leaves for work, and found that our hot water heater was apparently leaking.
AND, had been for quite some time because our basement was innundated with water.
Yep. Murphy's Law of Homeownership. As soon as you commit to a huge job costing a whole heap of money, something else totally unrelated will break and you will be forced to replace it with money you don't want to spend. <sigh>
The worst part is that this mishap of water damage has basically sealed the fate of the new floor Hubby laid as the foundation for finishing the basement. It will have to be redone now. We need to avoid mold underneath at all costs. Between Fuzzy's asthma and my health issues... it is a must.
Thankfully, our plumber came and replaced it, and Hammer with my mom's direction, was able to vaccuum up all the water mess.
Never a dull moment around here, that's for sure!
