Our place is a muddled up mixture of chaos and calm at the moment.
Chaos is found in relocating & designing a new kitchen, and calm is felt in all other small areas not covered in dust!
It really is an interesting balance, one that has seen both laughter & tears. And sometimes both at the same time.
Here is a little sneak peek into the chaos - (so that we don't go forgetting anytime soon, just how "fun" renovating is!)
cleaning out the old kitchen before the wall is knocked out.
goodbye wall - hello new dining/living area (that is, once the rest of the old kitchen is gone!)
part of the old kitchen ready to be ripped out.. bit sad really.
a peek into where the new kitchen will be located.
galley kitchen to built around the natural elements of the sun room = are we nuts, this is crazy... but we think it will pay off...
kitchen stuff stacked and stored at every turn.
You said "It looks like we live in a shop.... can I sell everything pleassssse?"
Makeshift shelving for the essentials
patchy old kitchen floor, needing some decisions made.
Thankfully, I can still find solitude & peace in the little pieces of calm that are sprinkled around the place.
calm is found in my love of a good pillow.. and now we have an insane amount of them leftover from the bench seating in the sun room.
see... pillow heaven!
calm is found in a bowl full of blankets.
and fresh greenery.
and white currant quince candles
and of course the sun that graces our yard in the late afternoon.
