I’ve been a bit distracted in recent weeks as I’m in the middle of a kitchen renovation.
If you’ve been there you’ll know how it goes.
It all started with a small, simple idea. I’d freshen up my kitchen by re-cladding the cupboard doors and panels. I was happy with the bench-tops and tile splash-back. As a project this shouldn’t be too demanding. How hard could it be?
Then I got seduced by all the wonderful IKEA storage options and next thing you know I have a three ring circus on my hands.
So now my old kitchen is all stacked up in my living room waiting to go to the tip. and we’re in the middle of installing my lovely new IKEA cupboards. Some of them have to have modifications to deal with some ‘special’ features of my kitchen area such as a central heating intake air vent which needs to be accommodated in one of the cupboards.
The tiles are no more and will be replaced with pressed aluminium splashbacks. Sadly when we took them off the wall they brought the plaster board with them so now I have a big hole where my wall should be.
And now that I’ve decided to replace my peninsula style bench with an island I’ve got a patch of floorboards that’s unvarnished and matching it to the rest of the floor may prove to be a bit of a challenge.
But I’m not fazed. despite all this the project is progressing well and I’m looking forward to having a fully functioning kitchen in a couple of weeks. By which time I will be well and truly over making the tea on the bathroom vanity top and doing the washing up in the bathroom basin.
Now here’s the bit where I ask for your help.
Not with my kitchen renovation. But with the scrapbooking of it.
I want to make a scrapbook layout covering the whole kitchen renovation experience.
I’ll be using lots of photos and I’m looking for some innovative ideas on how I might design the scrapbnook page.
I wrote an article a while ago about scrapbooking with multiple photos but those ideas are not what I want for this layout. I’m looking for something different.
So if you’ve got some ideas you could share with me I’d really really appreciate it. Just put them in the comments below.
And thanks a lot for your help.
