I’m off work today to wait in for a B&Q delivery (allegedly this should be the last).
This weekend, we took a deep breath and did it – we’ve painted most of the west wall in the kitchen black! We decided against painting it with chalkboard paint, although looking at it, it’s probably the same stuff anyway. Still need to do the edges but the majority’s done.
Barry’s also put the splashback under the cooker hood and built the unit that goes on the other side.
We also visited my ex-uncle this weekend with his broken and new sanders. He was lovely about it and said we shouldn’t have, and there was much merriment about lending us tools that were on their way out!
Barry’s got lots of fiddly things to do now in the kitchen, like fixing the electric plug and gas hose behind the oven, starting to build a cupboard for the boiler, and then putting handles on all of the purple doors and drawers. He’s going to ring the joiner this week as well; I cannot wait for the sink to be sorted!
