Here's how it went for us:
Old kitchen- yellow, tatty and in need of a spruce, spend many weeks/weekends choosing new colours and styles...
New granite and shelves/cupboards added
Start to fill up shelves from 'storage' (aka lounge floor)
Discover tipped over bottle of olive oil on carpet!!!!! DISASTER!!
BUT- have to spend weeks and weekends debating colors.....
PLUS, if we have new carpets, then we need new lounge blinds that match carpet and new kitchen as it's open plan, spend more weeks and weekends debating colors....
Discover chip and cracks in granite: PANIC!
I think it'll be a while before we do anything else to the house... how about you? Any renovation nightmares? Do you love renovating?
