We had lunch at Ikea. We never go there. I swear, some people just love that place. I like it ok but I am not an Ikea-maniac. It is only like 15 minutes from my house, I hear people talking about their out of town friends and family spending entire days there when they come to visit. Ugh, maybe because it is so dark and dreary in ours, I can't imagine. I didn't buy a thing on this trip, other than food. I'm a weirdo. Give me an outdoor flea market any day, I'd be a happy camper.
We picked out the color in about three minutes. No kidding. I saw the backsplash tile and said, "that's it." 30 seconds. Seriously. My Big Tall Hubby kept saying, "are you sure?" He kept bringing home more and more samples from the store. I was like this, "I said I want that one and I am positive!!!!!" Insert naggy tone, sorry Big Tall.
So it took forever for us to measure, we have the biggest, most cornered countertops in the world. We got the template and then finally got the pieces delivered about two months later. Those boxes were in the way for about a week until we could find a day to install them. Big Tall Hubby asked a Big Tall Friend to help and that's how the kids and I ended up at Ikea for the day.
During the weekend, I saw lots of booties and cracks. It was kind of annoying.
Anywhosie, I like the upgrade. We've only had one showing since we put the new counters in and they said they liked it. (They also put in a purposefully lowball offer and then when we countered, they ignored us, jerks!) So if nothing else, we have a nice newish kitchen to enjoy.
More updates later.
Have a great day!
