I’m writing this in retrospect. All the reno stuff stopped ages ago, like, MONTHS ago.  Don’t get me wrong, the reno isn’t complete. It’s just that a couple of factors prevented me from finishing stuff and blogging about it.  TIME and MONEY. There are more but they are too personal to discuss here.

The process of putting the kitchen back together following the reno was pretty tedious. It involved lots of washing. Everything from the old kitchen was greasy, covered in dirt and dust and spread from one end of the house to the other. Similarly, the linen and towels sat in messy piles in the sunroom. Combined with the normal, everyday, mess generated by a family, the task of putting things back together was rather overwhelming.

Here’s my new linen cupboard. It’s part of the vast wall of storage in the kitchen. It’s stuffed pretty full now. These pics were taken a couple of months ago. Even so, it feels so lovely to have a nice new, clean space to store linen.

Here’s where the linen lived before the reno…

These shelves were knocked up by The Colonel many years ago. They were just outside the old bathroom entrance. Now (post reno) our TV and sideboard sit where the door is on the left of the photo. And below is how my linen collection looked for months while we renovated…
