The Waiting Game .......

We are playing the waiting game at our old lady at the moment ......... the plastering and flooring in the kitchen are all complete, now we are waiting for them set and dry for a few weeks. 

We are certainly looking forward to having a fully functioning kitchen again ............ we are getting alittle tired of washing up in the bathroom !!!!!! Although it really hasn't been that bad and it will be all worth it in the end. At least we have Aggie to cook on ........ the advantage of doing the kitchen in two stages.

So in the mean time we are continuing the work in the front rooms ( demolition of the old fireplace) ready for the plasters who are due back when the kitchen is back together and finished.

The New Kitchen .......
Hi Vintage Lovers,

 Quite by accident a few months ago while shopping for other bits and pieces for the renovations at Recollections we discovered that they pre-make all timber kitchens with granite tops with porcelain sinks.

Now, we didn't love or hate our kitchen cupboards but decided to keep them as we didn't want to spend a fortune on cupboards made of MDF. So, until we found just the right cupboards for our old lady's kitchen we were happy to wait.

We couldn't believe our eyes when we came across these pre-made all timber kitchen units.
I did a little happy dance, went home, measured up and then ordered the next week.

So, our kitchen has a renovation zone again for a little longer. We have removed the old kitchen cupboards and the plasterers are back in re-plastering the wall this week with the flooring guys to follow in a few weeks time.

Next week we will be repairing and painting the ceiling as well as installing open shelving above Aggie (the AGA) and above the new work bench area (when it gets popped in).

A busy few weeks.
