Daydreaming home improvement

A sketch: medium-term fixes for the kitchen

So that house thing… We found one. We put in an offer, accepted, inspected, appraised, approved. We’re set to close on Monday.

I’ve never done this before, but I figure that means we get keys.

Then I figure we’ll spend the next few days with scrub brushes and tape measures, trying to get a handle on sprucing up the place.

In lieu of packing (like I should), I’ve been spending little slices of time re-imagining rooms in Photoshop (like the kitchen above). It’s not set in stone, it’s just a bit of playing in the digital sandbox.

Needless to say, we’re pretty giddy.

    Woo! Congrats, Chris. I too confess to re-imagining rooms in PS. I dig the tile backsplash.

    There’s a yiddish term we use to say “use it in good health”, but spelling it is out of the question, and google doesn’t seem to know what the hell I’m talking about.
    So we’ll go with Congratulations!

    Fantastic news!
    I look forward to seeing reimagining of the guest bedroom. I’m partial to yellow.
