The other reason it was hard for me is because our house is in complete shambles right now, but for good reason! Since I've moved into this house, the kitchen lights have always bothered me... they're just plain ugly. This weekend, Scott replaced the nasty fixtures with spotlights! It makes our kitchen look so much better! We're taking some Christmas money and getting new ceiling fans for our living room and kitchen, so it'll look even better in the future. Here are the old ugly fixtures:
And here are the new fixtures :)
It's amazing how much less cluttered it looks! I'm so lucky to have a handy-man! I'm so amazed at Scott's knowledge in all areas! Here's the problem: Now, in addition to a new ceiling fan, I want to paint the walls (can you believe they put gloss paint on the walls? Such a pain to paint over), stain the cupboards and add handles, get new counter tops, build an island, and get all new appliances. No problem, right? Haha! We also really want to get our basement done... a project we've been trying to start since we got married. Stupid medical bills! One of these days, our desires and Scott's abilities to get these projects done will come to fruition!
We still have yet to transfer everything back into the kitchen because we have yet to get all the dust from the drywall cleaned up, but I'll get that done tomorrow. Nothing like deep cleaning on a Monday morning :)
