Small Victories

I can't believe I am actually dedicating a whole post to one corner of my kitchen ceiling.  This is getting ridiculous!

But, as I am learning again and again during this mostly-DIY renovation, you gotta take the little victories whenever you can get them!  S-L-O-W is the name of this game, and waiting for the reality to catch up with the vision in my head is teaching me much about patience.  :)

So here again are those pipes in the corner of the kitchen, above the eat-in portion:

A few weeks ago I celebrated with you all that I had drywall and those pipes were hidden from sight:

And now I can say that it's starting to resemble a real room!  The drywall is complete, most of the paint is dry, and over the weekend my husband hung our new light fixture and did some major damage in the woodworking department.

As you can probably tell, I'm still catching up on painting the woodwork.

And I've also been busy with a project in the adjacent family room...you may be able to see a bit of that if you look closely on the right side of the photo.  More on that to come very soon!

In the meantime, wish me patience, my friends.  It's pretty bad when even my 8-year-old daughter knows that it's not one of Mama's strengths!

Looks great! Good job! Our DIYs take years and then we eventually hire someone to finish! :)

It's looking good. Can't wait to see the kitchen all done.
