Bad news bears...

Remember my kitchen?

This one?
And remember my cabinets in said kitchen?

Kitchen Cabinets
These ones?
The cabinets that I have been protecting from being thrown out by vicious and cruel people (practically everyone else in the world).

Kitchen during renovations

The cabinets that I have been determined to keep, not for aesthetics or to be true to the house, but rather on a strictly fiscal basis. (So legitimately valid reasons that everyone should totally understand!!!)

Kitchen cabinet drawers

The cabinets that I have been moving from room to room as we switched rooms we were working in. (And maybe coerced Jake into moving them for me the odd time...)

Kitchen Demo

The cabinets that I have been forcing everyone to work around. (Mostly Jake..,)

Kitchen Flooring being removed

Well they were moved outside.

I didn't want them to be moved outside. But we really did need the space inside. So we bought a monstrously large tarp and moved them outside.

Cabinets stored outside

As you can probably tell, it rained.

You're probably thinking "Oh! Good thing you put the tarp over everything!"

You're probably also thinking "Look! It's clearly protecting everything from the rain!"

Well, my friend... you would be WRONG!

Here's the problem.

Rain + Tarp = dry things underneath.

Except when the equation is more like:

Rain + Tarp + Cabinet With Zero Support Because The Sink Was There So It's Basically Just A Great Big Hole

Rain got to cabinets

Do you know what that equation equals? Because I do.

It equals weight. Weight which then pulls the tarp up. Which then lets rain pour in through the side. Which then sits inside the tarp. And more rain falls. And more rain. And more rain. And it's all sitting INSIDE the tarp now. Completely suffocating and stabbing all hope of new life out of the poor old cabinets and counter top. 

AKA everything is ruined. It's all warped beyond repair and already getting mouldy. 

This makes Alison a sad renovator. A sad renovator indeed...

Don't be afraid to leave comments here. I am genuinely interested in what you have to say! (Also, it feels like my blog becomes vindicated when people talk to me about it, which is a GREAT way to sooth my vanity 😁)
