Oh Lordy! Well, it's mostly sanded now but I keep running into sticky little problems that have to be fixed - like the rotten and crumbling "kick-plate" under the counter. I removed it tonight and need to replace it tomorrow. And a few pieces of mudroom window trim with the old termite damage but since this house was hand built replacing this is going to require that I reove a couple of pieces that I would prefer not to have to remove. And I'm having one heck of a time trying to uninstall that bathroom exhaust thing. I know I can call on Ramiro for any and all of this if I get stuck but I'd rather do the creative problem solving thing and figure it out on my own. Anyway, here is the hell that is my kitchen right now:
The other thing is that I couldn't choose a paint color if my life depended on it. I do not want this thing to be white white on white with white so I'm looking at sage greens but somehow I'm not confident with that choice. No blues. I want the trim and cabinets to be clean white but I'd like to go with a green I think - kind of pull in the backyard view. SIGH.
