Today I’m happy. A few years back I knocked our kitchen and hallway wall down to make one large kitchen. Since then the floor has been covered in thin boards, which looked so temporary. The walls and ceiling were painted, curtains were up, everything else except the floor. I felt embarrassed to open the front door. But not today, because now it’s finally homey and finished. At last!
Maybe this seems ok, just boarding on the floor but it was horrid. It felt nasty under foot and was not washable at all.
Now I have a “happily ever after” kitchen. It looks complete, finished, done. All that’s left to do is move all my junk back in to that pretty looking cupboard. Some of the coats will be finding my charity bag however.
Isn’t it funny how something looking incomplete, half done, can make you feel sad? It won’t look new and clean for long, after all I live with 3 boys. I’m expecting muddy foot prints at 3:30.
Do you have any not quite completed projects at home that are getting on your nerves?
