I like long walks on the beach, white cabinets, and hardwood floors…

Fresh off a meeting with the Home Depot kitchen folks last weekend, we are suiting up for an in-home measuring and design consultation appointment this week. When I said the ball was rolling, I meant it!

However, we did hit a bit of a bump in the road. I was less than impressed (to say the least) with our meeting last weekend with the “kitchen designer.” Honestly, I don’t think she knew anything about design or kitchens. Jon thinks my expectations are too high, and he’s probably right. So what if I wanted to waltz into Home Depot, tell them what I wanted, and have it all magically happen in the next couple weeks!

 New Home Depot, new design consultant, new day (let’s hope).

In the meantime, I am furiously cleaning my kitchen so as not to totally disgust the in-home consultation/ measuring team. There will be no hiding the obvious: cracked tile, peeling linoleum and dated cabinets. But, that doesn’t mean the place can’t be spotless!
