We’re at the stage of kitchen renovation where it looks like it can’t get worse, but it probably will, before it gets better. I’m trying not to have a full-blown episode about it, but that is not easy.

In case I haven’t mentioned it, this is a weekends (mostly) totally DIY project. I can’t remember exactly when we started, but obviously, we’re still in demo phase. Progress has been made. Walls have been knocked down, a door closed up, sheetrock replaced where there were holes from where the walls came down. Wallpaper has been removed, and as of yesterday, the textured ceiling is scraped and smoothed.

I would like to say we are at the messiest moment, but I’m afraid the mudding and sanding of the sheetrock might be worse.

It will be worth it. It will.
