Anyone that follows me regularly will know that the reason I've been up in the air and unable to craft regularly since the middle of January is because I was having a new kitchen installed. I had lived with my 1980s kitchen for 14 years and it was the one part of my flat that I hated but was the most expensive and most difficult to update. But, finally, it's now done so I thought I would share some before and after photos with you.
Unfortunately, living in a one-bedroom flat means that the entire contents of my kitchen had to go somewhere while the renovation work was being undertaken, and that somewhere was my lounge which is also where I craft. It was a big job, complete strip out, new electrics were needed, the ceiling and all four walls needed plastering, and then the installation of the new kitchen, appliances and plumbing.
This was my lounge for the duration...
|That's my crafting spot at the back of my lounge, where my laptop is, right next|
to the microwave!
|Then I took delivery of the new kitchen - boxes and cabinets|
everywhere. Just a little walkway to the sofa!
It was all worth it though, take a look at the transformation...
It's pretty much finished now, just some blinds to get fitted and a few finishing touches. This isn't my dream kitchen - that would have cost about four times more than this haha - but it's one hundred times better than what existed and I've waited a LONG time to be able to get it done so I'm a happy bunny :)
Right, I won't waffle on any longer. Back to the spring cleaning for me, getting rid of dust in places I've never seen dust before! lol
