beach cottage kitchen progress – IKEA Faktum cabinets
Thu 7th, Jun, 2012
G’day Beach Cottage girls, some progress on how the kitchen is going with the IKEA Faktum units : slowly!
You see, there is a small and very irritating problem in Beach Cottage Land in the Kitchen Wall Cupboard Fitting Scenario, it’s called Mr Beach Cottage’s back. Humph.
There I am all dancing around and happy with my new wall cupboards those those whose insides I will stuff with jars of decanted stuff and line with polka dots, whose doors I will close and smile because all we will white and clad-like in my world, when Mr Beach Cottage also known as Chief Cupboard DIY Putter Upper goes and hurts his back. I knew it was bad because he actually went to the pysio, that is unheard of around Beach Cottage Land.
And what is much worse is that the Physio instructed no lifting or bending!
So undeterred I schemed a solution…. did that mean no supervisng I asked?
No, supervising would be ok.
Great, well we have four boys in this house (yes I am including the lovely Barls in that equation) surely together you can at least get these things put together! Or put is this way, you want dinner you build unit. Deal or no deal?
And so what ensued was the males of this cottage on Sunday afternoon which was wet, dark and dreary getting their boy stuff on and getting these cupboards ready to be put up…
This, in actual fact, turned out to be a very good lesson in family life – out came leadership, a teaming of resources, a sharing of knowledge and all that stuff that you see in those books that I never bought on parenting so I am not sure how I know, but, for sure, it happened in an old cottage on the beaches of Sydney on Sunday afternoon.
But now, well now I have to wait…the getting this on the wall we have worked out is going to be a bit of a job, especially with the back component…and there has been MUCH discussion on wall plugs and weight distribution in this old cottage…I just put my head down, got on with the dinner and threw in an extra clove or six of garlic for good measure :-)
What do you think, right now I have two of these keeping me company in the study, but it’s looking good so far huh?
