red paint everywhere

Well, friends, I have a red kitchen!

Just twenty-four hours ago, it looked like this:

I ended up going with a gray primer under the red paint, then put up the first coat of red today.

I'm planning to finish the kitchen with a second coat next weekend. Then I'll have one room down... and only six to go.

The other big news of the weekend is my new grill! I found it on Freecycle, and the owners happened to live just a few blocks from me. So on Saturday, Megan and Nathan helped me roll it from their house to mine. It's probably not the last time this spring I'll wish I had a truck - but it was fun to make people laugh as we rolled by.

Hopefully, after a good cleaning, it will turn out to actually work! I'll let you know when I give it a try.

Lastly, a true sign of spring: the first flower in the garden.

And now, I'm off to go scrub red paint out of my hair.
