Our house is a little disorganized right now. The dining room table and three chairs are in the living room. The rest of the chairs are lined up against the wall in the hall. The large buffet, the two tall corner cupboards, and the smaller china cabinet are too heavy and bulky to be moved very far, so they are pushed together in the center of the kitchen. Every countertop and flat surface in the kitchen and living room is covered with the dishes and other breakable treasures that are usually stored in these four cabinets.
We have been busy. First we steamed off the old wallpaper and resurfaced, primed, and painted the walls and the ceiling. Then we pulled up the old carpet and pad and installed a new hardwood floor. Now that the floor is finished and the baseboard and shoe moldings are back in place, all that we have left to do is to finish painting the woodwork and take care of any necessary touch ups. We’re hoping to find time to finish the painting tonight… and then tomorrow night we can start putting the room back together.
And hopefully tomorrow will be the beginning of the end of this temporary chaos that has turned our most-used rooms into a combination maze and obstacle course.
We hadn’t planned to do a complete renovation of our dining room right now, but one thing led to another… and another… and another.
We can’t help it… we actually LIKE doing this kind of thing.
