Saturday Operation Kitchen

The kitchen is destined to be bottomed out tomorrow.  I started this evening and have given the breadmaker and my Kenwood a going over  they are out on the worktop full time just have the soup maker and the chip fryer and my Masterchef to go.  This is the big degreasey clean where the steam cleaner comes out as well and the top of the units also get sorted and the walls all washed down.  The door handles are starting to go a bit naff on the kitchen cupboards and so I have been having a recce on line to see if I can find some little ceramic ones that will tart the units up a bit and make them look loved again.  I have pine kitchen units  - me I am a farmhouse traditional kind of girl.   I have seen a couple of designs I like we are just at the mooching stage.  I am also looking at gingham an apple green to do curtains and a sink washing machine skirt.  New flooring has been chosen and I am hoping to go and get that this Sunday.  I have chosen a slate melamine flooring for the kitchen. It also needs a new pantry door and a lick of paint.  I got the paint stripper for the skirting boards today.  Where the fridge that has gone waff was in the kitchen I am going to see if other half will put some shelving in there and yet again have another skirt cover to tidy it all up.  Ceiling needs a lick of paint too, and a new door curtain for the back door. We will have to see what we can come up with.  I thought it would make a good bottled goods store and relieve the main Pantry a little bit. I will have to talk nicely to him/

I then have to sort the Pantry out a bit.  Will have to see how things go.  I thought if the kitchen were all done it would feel loads cleaner. 

Our bathroom is on the end of the kitchen.  The laminate is still good in there. The walls just need the odd bit of filler where cracks have come and then a paint job.  New pedal bins for the loo and the bathroom with some other accessories and a curtain pole to hang a pair of curtains to keep the room warm - it gets really cold in there and that should be the bathroom tidied up.

I got the paint stripper and the filler at dinner when I popped to Wilkinsons and a couple of new bread pans.  I have not forgotten about the bread prover its just that I have to do other things before I can get to that but tit is on the list.

Right upwards and onwards have a lot to achieve and so little time to do it all in.


Catch you sometime tomorrow.

  1. Snap, my kitchen is having a birthday today. I was tired and had an early night last night so am up and rearing to go. I emptied the top of the wall units while the kettle boiled, not much up there just my cling film, foil and so on, the biscuit and cake tins and the coffee and tea. I do the cupboards, one at a time weekly but the drawers need fettling.

    1. Hi Pam

      Hope yours is done I am still at mine. Having mum's stuff has sort of created a little / big problem but will get there in the end.

      Take care
