8 Days and counting freak out...

With move in day only 8 days away I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. I'm feeling like there is no way the new house is going to be ready in time. Still so much to paint, electrician still needs to change out fixtures and update basically EVERYTHING, and the DIRT... it took me 7 hours to clean only 1/2 of my kitchen floor. I really thought they were beige when I mopped them the first time, then I took a Scotch-Brite to a small section and they were WHITE! (see below)

Here's a peek at what I've been up to in the kitchen, pretty gross and not that exciting...

Scrubbing, lots of good old fashioned on my hands and knees scrubbing.

BEFORE (that's not my sweet patio/dining set)


AFTER Turquoise walls

Trying to work with the retro ranch element going on. There will also be pops of orange, and my spaghetti lamp from my current sunporch, & some white eiffel base shell chairs going on.




BEFORE (You can actually see the grease reflecting from the cabinets!)




AFTER

We changed the hardware from brass to nickel.


We scrubbed LAYERS of grease off the cabinets (took three rounds of TSP, finally plain old Lysol did the trick...if anyone needs cleaning product recommendations I tried a bunch and seriously Lysol liquid cleaner beat everything, even commercial floor cleaners... go figure)
I'll post more soon and it won't be as dull and boring next time, I can feel visual progress coming...
and I promise I won't bitch about the dirt anymore.
