holding on to hope.

Before we spend a huge chunk on remodeling the outdated kitchen, I want to live in it for a while to figure out what I need, what I want and what makes sense for the space. In the meanwhile, it definitely could use a bit of perking up. This weekend, we took advantage of the sunshine and painted the cabinet doors and existing hardware. It is a work in progress, but I’m feeling perky.

…and this is what’s coming before the end of the summer: brand new granite countertops!

p.s. Mina, if you are reading this, did you notice the tea kettle? On my trip to HomeGoods last week, I found a replacement kettle in the same color! Can you believe Husband didn’t even notice the switch?!
