I'm turning over a new leaf and clearing things out of my life. But I decided I can't yet give up my old scissor collection. Notice I didn't call them "vintage" or "antique", though a few qualify. Most are just old scissors and I love the way they look hanging on a wall. They will probably go in my studio once it gets built. I counted 53 pairs when I took them down.
Shelves are gone. Nail holes are filled. The wall is ready to paint.
Things are happening at the new place too.
Ray is assembling the kitchen cabinets in the livingroom. We got the cabinets at IKEA. I think I am going to love them. They are highly rated by Consumer Guide and very economical. As you can see the insides are laminated particle board, but the doors and drawer fronts are solid oak. After Ray assembles them the IKEA contractor will install them.
And this was the really exciting development today. The tile layers got started.
That's a lot of scissors!ReplyDelete
The floor looks great.I'm excited to watch your progress.
The floor is going to be gorgeous and I'm starting to like the dark cabinets more and more. Maybe I'm just tired of the oak I've had for years. Got scissors?ReplyDelete
And I thought I had a thing for scissors! The floor is looking wonderful.ReplyDelete
And to think there are people in this world who ask, "Why would anyone need more than one pair of scissors?" You have me beat by a mile.ReplyDelete
I put a live picture link to your remodeling projects on my blog today. I'm so inspired by looking at your progress.ReplyDelete
Oh, this is getting exciting, Terry, but I am still sad that you are moving farther away from me. It is beginning to feel imminent.ReplyDelete
Ah, kitchen season. Love that floor, although I am going to wood. We get started next month; I hope it finishes before my big travel/teach season gets underway. IKEA cabinets are terrific - but my husband is not a DIY'er, so that was out. It's exciting to watch your progress.ReplyDelete
those scissors are so great! And I love the look of the tiles and cabinets, it is going to be such a warm inviting kitchen! Can't wait to see what you decided about the tile border above the counters! Those little birds you made would look adorable in the kichen (although I suspect they would also become dust gatherers!)ReplyDelete
That tile floor is going to be amazing! Is is a terra-cotta color? What color grout are you going to use? I am also excited to see your IKEA cabinets!ReplyDelete
