My daughter is supposed to come start the kitchen painting process while I’m at a doctor’s appointment today.
I’ve decided there is no need to paint the inside of the open shelves. I painted them five years ago, and I don’t want to move my dishes out and store them.
I don’t want to waste any more of her time than is necessary. She has a busy life with kids and selling real estate and finding houses to flip or rent.
I’m planning to pay her just like I would anyone else, because she has so little time and I’m so appreciative of her help.
Caulking & Painting:
The kitchen will have to be done in stages. First will be the caulking and painting. Then the counter top kit with epoxy will need to be applied. I will do that part.
Once the counter top kit has been added, you have to wait 48 hours before you can touch it. And seven days before it’s cured. I don’t want to take any chances so I’m going to be very careful with the counter top for seven days.
After that is done, it’s probably the time to add the peel and stick subway tiles.
So this whole kitchen redo will take a few weeks to be accomplished.
I placed Charlie’s big basket of medication on the kitchen table while I was sanding yesterday because I had to move it off the washer.
Darned if Ivy didn’t get in there and drag some things off. I got to her before she began to take medication out, that little stinker.
When my daughter gets here I’ll need to warn her about putting any thing down where Ivy can get to it. My daughter has dogs at her house and isn’t accustomed to a cat’s shenanigans.
Here’s a photo of Ivy I came across from late 2018. She’d only been living here for about a month at that point.
I laugh every time I look at this photo of her.
