Progress on our home, most of the time, moves at a snail's pace. A reluctant snail who is embarrassed to ask for directions. But now and again, some event will spur us into action.
This weekend we got news that our plumber can squeeze us in this week for our boiler to be replaced. This is something we've been discussing for a while, and debating whether the new boiler can fit in the existing purpose built cupboard. Well our plumber confirmed that this cupboard doesn't meet the right conditions for clearance, access etc and we had to remove it this weekend - along with three wall cupboards. I'm trying to keep positive about the loss of cupboards and adopt a minimalist mindset. After all 'Less is More'.
The Queen of Clean, sensing my distress, decided to come to the rescue with his paintbrush. This duck egg blue (very Cath K) is now on my kitchen walls. It makes up for the fact I am to have no hot water for 3 days this week.
And to replace the 3 cupboards we have lost, my lovely sister picked one of these up for me today.

I cannot wait to dress mine.....although this is a long way off as need to get boiler in, painting finished and finally shelves up. I'm not one for a colour theme usually, but I'm thinking cream and blue items on the shelves with splashes of red. Just need to keep my minimalist head on and not go and buy stuff just to put on the shelves! I wouldn't put it past me........
