After 4 1/2 months of intense renovations and an insane high level of dust throughout the whole house, our kitchen is almost ready (see old one here
) and I really thank you all for all your very kind comments when I posted this photo
Was four months without a kitchen worth it? Oh yes!
We’ve tripled our storage space and created a white kitchen
that I loved (I really hated the previous one
), with a beautitful, smooth Corian worktop and a very long and inviting breakfast bar.
At some point, the level of dust in our house was so high that it was a real challenge to have a ‘normal’ family life, let alone finding a space or the energy to write a blog post so I’ve posted most of the renovation updates on Facebook (you can view the whole renovations album on Facebook here)
and on Instagram
under hashtag #bodieandfourenovations
We didn’t store our belongings away and I really wish we had send them to Spaceways
again, a storage company I used before which collect things from your home, as it would have made things a lot easier (you live and learn right!?).
I sold a few items on ebay
before the renovations started and then boxed everything else in our bedroom while we moved in the new loft conversion but I never anticipated the insane amount of dust, taking the chimney breasts down
in Mila’s old room
(featured here in Milk magazine)
and the room above, would create. Insane!!!!!
The day it happened, I came home and had my first (and sole) panic attack since the beginning of the renovations…2 cm of dust on the floor, boxes, everywhere.
Steve was away, Mila was in France and I must have cried a good 20 min before being able to calm myself down, pick the hoover and get one with it but gee…I really wish I had stored our clothes away.
After a water burst and the fridge defrosting yesterday for no reason, the kitchen is now operational. The resin floor is being laid down the w/c 20th October and we’ve only got two more pipe lamps (see above, they’re cool, aren’t they!?) to fix on the wall and we are done!
I’m over the moon by the result…hope you like it too :-)
