We bought this older home, because it looks like a dollhouse from outside. (Well, that is why I wanted it, hubs didn’t want it at all)
Inside is a trainwreck.
You don’t believe me, look here.
It has sooo much potential. And it has a pool. I like pools. Not to swim in, well sometimes, but mainly to lay out by. I feel silly laying out in a pool-less yard.
So, the kitchen is a giant nightmare. Ugly, but HUGE. So we are going to remodel it soon (likely in a year or two). Because we are remodeling it and I have NO IDEA what I want…stove top, double oven, island, bar, stainless appliances, white appliances….etc…I haven’t put ANY work into the kitchen. Well, except that I removed the wallpaper, painted & put in a new floor, but that is a whole other story (literally).
But hey, it worked. So I couldn’t complain. Wasn’t about to go purchase a new stove when I didn’t know what I wanted when we remodel.
BUT! The other day my sister-in-law called me and said “Hey, a friend is selling an almost brand new gas stove for only $300″. I said “Done. I’ll take it!”
Then I asked hubs. Luckily he said yes!
Now, you can be jealous! It has 5 burners. It also has a level surface…all the grates meet together…so like I don’t have to balance burning hot casserole dishes between 2 burners while forgetting to actually put on a glove therefore each additional second that it takes me to balance the dish I am literally SEARING my fingers to the bones….not that I’ve actually EVER done that….
I was super excited about this stove. SUPER.
Hubs installed it within minutes of us getting it. It ROCKS!
I cooked anything I could RIGHT then. Like mini pizzas and a cake and stuff.
I went to do the dishes.
That’s right. The friggin dishwasher (also from dinosaur ages) will. not. open.
I was super upset. Thought I was losing the new stove. But, hubs wiggled, pushed, wedged & fanagled the PERFECT solution.
Done deal. NOW, you know a lot more about me.
I get to keep my stove, which makes me smile.
