holy geez!

August 14, 2011

We arrived home from our vacation yesterday all happy, relaxed and bronzed to find our kitchen cabinets coming off the wall!

All of the screws at the top of the cabinets had come right out from the wall and the only thing holding them up were the remaining bottom screws.  It was frightening!  How lucky were we that they didn’t all come crashing down while we were away?!  Needless to say there was an insane period of removing all the contents while the cabinets creaked and threatened to fall.  I fired some new screws into a couple of studs to hold them temporarily.  The backs are beginning to separate from the cabinets so we are in a bit of a pickle but I am going to make a cleat that ties all of the cabinets together across the top and then fastens to the wall.

We have been talking about doing a full kitchen reno for some time now but we aren’t really ready to be forced into it like this!  There is still so much dreaming, planning, sourcing and pricing to be done so for now we will put a band-aid on it!

[Sorry for the grainy photos – I guess that the cameras haven’t quite adjusted themselves to being back in this northern climate quite yet!]
