As I got to work, Michael grabbed the camera and disappeared. Unbeknownst to me, he had noticed that the single rose bud, on our only rose bush in the garden, had little dew drops covering it and wanted to capture a picture. He re-appeared after a few moments and started taking measurements and making preparations to seal the living room window.

|The Original 1964 Chrome Trim - A discovery that set me back 6 hours!|
Michael successfully finished the living room window project, and moved on to the bedroom. He was cleaning each of the 17 drawers with Spic-and-Span and replacing the hardware. After stripping the chrome trim, I moved on to the area where the contractors had removed the old Wedgewood Built in Oven. Realizing that it would be quite sometime before we could afford a new oven, we knew we would have to do something, temporarily, to camouflage that giant hole! We measured the area and brought over two black cubicle shelf units (that we had used at the apartment to store office supplies). It turned out that they were the perfect dimensions and fit nicely after a bit of modification. I had confiscated the Wedgewood Oven front plate and decided to clean it up and keep it as an art piece. I was able to incorporate it into our new little storage area. So, here is our new, temporary, non-oven, oven!
So much more to tell and so much more to do....we will keep you posted.
