the new kitchen…

September 13, 2008 at 2:31 pm 2 comments

ok so Pam asked what next? such a simple question but having written the list I hadn’t done terribly much about achieving what is on it.  Now some (like an o/s holiday) are going take quite a bit of saving up and and hence time to organise.  Others less so…

But the kitchen is currently annoying me and I am moving forward on some plans. I got 2 more quotes yesterday – one from ikea and one from zesta. Now zesta couldn’t give me exactly what I wanted (Ikea can) and they wanted a good $4K more!  Ikea (with me assembling and them installing) came in just UNDER the other quote that I had (which had drawers instead of cupboards).  I had – after much umming and erring decided to ditch the dishwasher as mine is playing up and I can’t really afford a new one but on discussion with Stephen changed my mind again which brought the cost down a bit further again of course – bonus!

I have MOST of the money to do it now – just waiting on some and trying to save the rest but it is definetly time to start getting sorted. I plan to get some quotes over the school holidays from electricians and handymen so that I can get it all moving.

    Ohhhh sounds VERY exiting!!!
    Can I just give MHO….. DRAWERS are much better than cupboards!!!!! You can easily get to the things at the back of the bottom drawer by pulling it out whereas that darn thing at the back of the bottom shelf of the cupboards is a lot more tricky!!! Can you tell I LOVE MY DRAWERS!! Worth paying a bit extra for! IMHO anyway lolol
