How the Leipprandts Roll

You might be curious as to why my bi-weekly kitchen renovation posts suddenly stopped coming. That would be because the renovation ground quickly to a halt as soon as we had a functional space again. And also once all the professionals stepped out of the picture.

Herein lies one of my husband's and my greatest weaknesses: 90% projects.

It is a disease I brought upon this household. My dear perfectionist of a husband loathes all things half-assed and half-done. But apparently early on in our marriage I must have convinced him to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine while appreciating the great start we had made on some project...and then we went promptly to bed and forgot the project for several months.

A partial list of currently unfinished projects around Casa Leipprandt:

Crown molding in two bedrooms that is unpainted (3 years after installation)
Tree mural in the Squirt's bedroom with pencil outline still showing (15+ months)
Rod and curtains for dining room purchased but un-hung (Going on 3 months)
Showerhead with a large unpainted swath of primer behind it awaiting touching up (5+ years)

And the kitchen comes in first place with the longest list of unfinished projects of any room in the house. Here's what we've got left to do:

Prime and paint the floating shelf
Seal grout on new tilework
Re-paint trimwork
Paint crown molding
Paint new window seat
Make cushion for window seat
Purchase/hang curtains over large window
Purchase/hang blinds over small window
Paint built-in fridge cabinet
Paint ceiling
Touch up cabinet door paint

UGH! I knew I was doomed once B Daddy installed the microwave and I could not only cook dinner but warm-up leftovers to boot.

Any guesses on when we'll wrap these items up and be ready for a big blogger-style reveal??

  1. Could it be waiting for Pops to retire and have time to assist with project completion? Those that know Pops know he can not seat still for long!
