I sat down to blog, but instead have found myself staring at pictures of pretty kitchens. Ya know how sometimes you get an idea in your head - and it seems to be all you can think about? I swear this is my life story - and this way of thinking often gets me into trouble. I can't walk through my kitchen lately without thinking about HOW SIMPLE it would be to turn my kitchen into this:
This is where the trouble comes in. I honestly get the urge to do this (and finish this) on a Wednesday afternoon - with thoughts like, "Oh, Rob will be so excited when he gets home!" I just can't seem to grasp that it would take me a million years to do this on my own - let alone, buy everything (then take twenty trips back to get it all right!)
The worst part is that you get on Pinterest, and every single person has somehow whipped this up, already - posted the before and after pictures, and now has a perfectly, perfect kitchen. And has also added phrases like, "do it yourself," or "the easy way to.." so I get myself all psyched up to do it.
Will I ever? Not sure. Maybe. Or maybe I'll just get on Pinterest and dream about refinishing my entertainment center. Perhaps that is a bit more within my reach. Until then, I'll just blog about how desperate I am to do it. That's how I roll.
BDEM: Probably Rob's nod of approval as I mentioned painting the cabinets. I've kept my mouth shut on that one for months. I figured if I even mentioned it, it'd be shot down. Instead of, "Oh, I don't think that'd look very good," he just said, "That's a lot of work..." WHICH IS NOT A NO!
