We have PAINT!
The pantry is painted now, though your local perfectionist gets the heebee jeebees when he see the fibers from the bargain roller all stuck in the semi-gloss. I actually took a single edge razor blade to a lot of them, but really, shaving a whole wall or ceiling; not gonna do it, wouldn't be prudent, not at this juncture.
And tonight I assembled some cabinets from that place that sounds like eye key ah. Our friend that is a contractor told us that, "Friends don't let friends buy IKEA cabinets." but we went ahead and did it anyway. As if she was going to stop us.
So now we have a pile of cabinets, painted walls, some counter top pieces, and a bunch of other kitchen parts. Tomorrow I will work on assembling a 7X8 foot kitchen with a hall through the middle and no fridge. Wish me luck.
