Here's the truth, I was never part of the in crowd. That's okay with me. I like to fancy myself a bit of a misfit. As a result I seem to be drawn to other misfits, whether they be human or not.
We have started work on our kitchen. Here's disclaimer#1: Our kitchen needs to be gutted, tip to toes, soup to nuts, floor to ceiling. Here's disclaimer#2: Be don't have the budget for a full kitchen reno right now so we are focusing on making it livable for the lean years.
However, for when the time comes when the years aren't so lean, we are dreaming of an unfitted kitchen. We want something a little different than what every one else has, a mix of materials and finishes to give us a uniquely individual space.
The Europeans are experts in the unfitted kitchen. I'm getting back to my Scandinavian roots by going this direction. My Swedish and Norwegian ancestors are giving me a standing ovation.
Also, it turns out this is a less expensive way to do it. I almost never choose the less expensive way, so my Sweet Hubby is also giving me a standing ovation.
And I always thought being a misfit was it's own reward.
