I bought some paint today and tomorrow, DS has promised to come out and paint the kitchen. There are a few cracks from the house settling over the years and some trim nails that never got set. The kitchen counter will need new caulking even if I decide to put tile on the backsplash wall area between the upper cupboards and the counter. My paint choice is a color a bit lighter than the small bathroom with the bathroom color on the bulkheads and one wall. I have never tried two colors in one room. I hope it turns out well. Hopefully I will be able to take a few photos before the painting begins. Right now the kitchen counters are a mess. Yesterday and today I cleaned out every drawer and all the lower cabinets to rearrange my "Stuff" and still need to find a place for some things. One final thing that needs to be done is to make new doors for the lower cabinets. We glued the panels to the rest of the doors and they all cracked. While the doors look great during the summer, having the heat on causes the cracks to show every winter. Unless. . . unless the new heating system which will include both a HEPA air cleaner and a whole house humidifier will keep the doors from drying out. I guess I will wait and see. Good news? The driller is "planning to be there on Monday to start". I'm not too sure about that, but we are expecting warmer weather this next week so hopefully the geo system will get in soon.
