Reading through the Young House Love book and scrolling through their projects on their site has inspired me to want to redo our kitchen and laundry room. Derek is so excited. He shows it by cursing, rolling his eyes, and sighing every time I bust out the paint chips and ask him his opinion, which we all know doesn’t really matter much.
We can’t afford a major kitchen remodel, but we can probably afford to change the flooring (we HATE HATE HATE the floor we have now), change the backsplash, repaint the cabinets, find window covering not made of foil, and completely repaint the laundry room next to the kitchen (the room with the crazy ass sunflower wallpaper in it). Any suggestions ???
Our remodeling style probably won’t be as cute as theirs: we aren’t young (one of us is a little over 40 and the other one … well let’s not talk about it) and we’ve been married for nearly 21 years, so the romantic stuff doesn’t happen quite as often, although he does help me figure out how to get the wine out of the box …. I’ll take it.
