I love that they're redoing all the cabinets. We could've just coughed up some serious dinero on new cabinets, but this way they're learning a lot and enjoying it so much, and to watch your people create something so substantial and useful is just fun.
If we're staying true to Jacob's carpentry genes with our cabinetry, on the flipside, we're taking the low road with the floors. After ripping up three layers of linoleum (gross gross gross) and considering lots of different options, it looks like we're landing on Tundra laminate flooring from IKEA.
I've been able to help with some of the paint, but my contribution to the remodel is still mostly babysitting and letting youtube How-To videos serenade my evening: table saws and drills and backwoodsy accents saying things like:
"What we have here is a failed kitchen cabinet drawer."
"Installing these floors by yourself is frustrating as f***."
And on that lovely note, I'm off to read some dePaola with the minion while the baby snoozes. Have a nice Tuesday!
