Shopping For Kitchen Appliances*21:42:00
Last week we begun work on our new kitchen. Yes, we decided that three weeks before Christmas would be the perfect time to rip out our old kitchen and start again ourselves. It has been so stressful and there is still so much to be done. Fingers crossed it will be usable come Christmas day so we can have a nice Christmas dinner!
It has taken two years for me to save enough money to start this work and doing the work ourselves has enabled me to do everything exactly how I want. I got to spend a little more on the range cooker I wanted and still have some left over to spend on some new kitchen appliances. I am really excited for the building work to be done so I can do some shopping. I would love a combination microwave oven fitted to the wall, a small thing but I have never had this and would love to have lots of uncluttered work surfaces! Another thing I have always wanted is a four slice toaster. Having three kids wanting breakfast at the same time, I can find myself stood around the toaster for ages while they argue about who gets theirs first, I have spotted some cute vintage looking toasters online so they are definitely on my wishlist. Of course, I will then need a matching kettle as everything has to be colour coordinated.
The whole look I am hoping for with my kitchen is a shabby chic look. I have chosen grey doors for my units, a wooden work surface and duck egg blue tiles for the walls. I am so so excited to see it all come together and so glad I don't have to look at the tatty old kitchen we have lived with again.
