We were going to get the new dining room cabinet, and then we weren’t, and then we were, and then we weren’t, and now, we are. We pretty much have to do something since we’ve chopped so many holes in the wall.
This was the room after the electrician worked Saturday. The big hole with the wire hanging out . . I’m not real sure about the purpose of that. Maybe because a new circuit breaker had to be run for these plugs and the under counter lighting?? The two small holes are where the new plug boxes will be.
He came back and worked Monday and this is what it looks like now. Wire in big hole has been put where it needs to be. New plugs have covers. But, there’s a new hole at the bottom. A long hole. Not real sure what that’s there for but I’m sure it makes sense to Chris and Vince.
There’s no way we can match this paint because of the glaze that’s on it so the entire room, including the hallway and foyer, are going to have to be repainted. There should be a law that people have to save their paint colors for the next owner. My little kitchen is a different color but I’m going to paint everything the same color and be done with it. The ceilings all need painting too. This is a job for a professional.
Finally, we got new switches for the fan/light in the extra bedrooms.
Who would have thought a little switch would make me so happy? Before, we had a regular flip type switch. Then you had to pull the chain for the light or fan on the light/fan. If I walked in there at night, I’d turn the switch on and the chain had been pulled so the fan would come on but the light wouldn’t and since the fan is over the bed, I’d break my neck trying to get to the chain for the light and never knew in the dark which chain was for the light and which chain was for the fan. Why do people do that? Seems like we’ve always had two switches on the wall . . one for the light and one for the fan but only in the master bedroom here . . not the other two. We’ve solved that problem.
Will we ever get everything done that we want done? The truth is . . where we’ve lived before, we always knew that we’d be moving some time in the future so we lived with whatever bugged us but here, we’re assuming we’ll be here for the rest of our time so we’re trying to do things the way we want them and . . I guess we just want too many changes! 🙂
