It was all fine until the cieling was ready to be prepped and painted. That meant haulling all my stuff out of the kitchen and dining rooms. I have far to many things. Then Mike made sure my ceiling was perfect. That means he put drywall mud up, then sanded it off, put more mud up, then sanded again. I think he repeated the process about 4 or 5 times, much to my dismay! I kept telling him I would be fine with a rolly-polly ceiling, just to paint, he didn't listen. I must admit, I am so glad he ignored my pleading, it looks super. Even with the plastic up over the doors, dust went to every inch of the house! Amanda did her best to keep up with the shop vac.
This is my perfect baking area. All my baking needs are tucked away in my Hoosier, my mixer is between my flour and my sink, mixing bowls are in plain view, the cookbook has a stand that holds my page, and the Hoosier has a pull out work top that is a perfect level for kneading dough.
Across from my great baking area is the refrigerator and a cabinet. The cabinet is home to the things I don't need to access much like cookbooks, water pitchers, and to-go coffee mugs.
