Who’d have thought that such a small space could cause so many problems! I think if I had known how stressful doing the kitchen was going to be I’d definitely have put it off.

But we’re at the half way stage. We’ve got shelves to go up, the back door to seal, black drawers to replace the mistakenly ordered wood effect ones (thank you Wickes!), painting to do and the concrete worktop to come in about 5 weeks.

Will all the pain be worth it?
