Someone over at Blogging Baby recently confirmed that we're not the only ones who are worried about having young kids around during construction. The difference is that we don't currently have the budget or time to pull off the full gut kitchen renovation that she's doing.
And so, instead, we offer up the latest twist in our bungalow renovation oddessy.......Kitchen Makeover, Trading Spaces style!
That's right, in the spirit of the seminal quick fix DIY show we're doing a superficial facelift of our kitchen to clean up the grime before the baby arrives.
The Goal? To clean up the kitchen, repaint, and put everything back in a more organized way in three days.
The Challenge? Well, isn't it obvious...?
The Twist? Like the show, we're going to have special guests to come over and help us with the work...Jeannie's parents!
(Not the most current photo, but they are STILL this stylish and good looking.)
With the baby's due date creeping ever closer, we've gotten them concerned enough about the state of our living arrangements to inspire them to drive all the way from Virginia with a drill and paintbrush. Isn't family great!?
So, we'll be blogging regularly over the next three days as we try to get everything done. Cross your fingers!
