Paint, that is. I finally have an update on our kitchen “transformation.” Sadly, I do not have earth-shaking before and after photos. I have no Ty Pennington on hand to “move that bus.” But I do have insight into how renovations happen in real life. Slowly. Painfully. With dust and splinters and lots of fighting. Paint splatters and misplaced screws. Ruined $15 paint brushes, last minute trips to Home Depot, agitation, frustration and similar states of being. We sand a board, we have a bout of hand-foot-and-mouth disease. We slap on a coat of paint, we have a lawn to mow. We attach hardware to one cabinet, then it’s out for groceries or gymnastics. I’d like to say the kitchen is a priority, but when I look back at the past two months, life really comes first. I can see why people shell out the big bucks for turnkey renovations.
