Have You Ever...

...done dishes in your bathroom?

Well, I have. And it is no fun. I hate doing dishes in the first place; sometimes I think I'd rather lose my right hand than do dishes. But doing them in the bathroom is...a special kind of disgusting. Ugh. I have to give myself a pep talk to walk in there.

WHY am I doing dishes in our bathroom? This is why:

We are renovating our kitchen, that's why! These are some beautiful "before" pictures that highlight our kitchen's undeniable beauty: peach counter tops; disgusting old oak cabinets; nasty soffets overhead. I know, I know--our kitchen is too beautiful to replace. But it has been driving us crazy since day one and we decided we just had to do something about it. So we are!

Don't get me wrong--I will wash dishes in the bathroom for a month or more if I have to in order to get a nice, new kitchen (and I will probably have to). As of right now, we have a refrigerator and our range in the dining room area. Everything else is either in the bathroom or the office (now pantry).

I could sugar-coat this, but why? This is really how we are living. Goodbye, lovely office/craft room! Hello, messy pantry. I have to climb over all this stuff if I ever need anything out of here. Just a few hours ago I needed to toast a piece of bread; so I dug out the toaster under this mound of junk and plugged it in by the computer. And if I forget to close the door when I'm done, Holly very stealthily goes in to see what damage she can do in there.

So our living space is a little confined for now. But in just a few short weeks, we will have a brand spankin' new kitchen to show for it! Not bad, eh?

Yay, how exciting! I mean, not the mess part, but the new kitchen! You'll have to post the after pictures for sure.
