I went to Lowe's this afternoon to pick up some painter's canvas (it makes great material for throw pillows, and I don't worry too much about the dogs hurting it), and I decided to take a stroll through the countertop department.
I start asking the lady working about pricing and how to get an estimate. She explains that I just pick out what I want, and she'll come out and measure.
So, long story short, I've got a lady from Lowe's coming to give me an estimate for new countertops on Monday! Yay!
So it's actually starting to happen. The transformation of my "blah" (and slightly non-functional) kitchen is in the early stages!!!
I'm not saying it will happen next week, but I'm reservedly hopeful.....because it COULD happen next month! or this year!
