When we moved to this Park 3 years ago, I was very pleased with our home. The Park provides a free house, yes, I said free (well, of course hubby's pay reflects that). We were fortunate to have a brand new home at our last Park and our home now is older, but much bigger and since it is on 8 acres, we can't complain.
However, the first day we moved in I was sitting in the kitchen and I told Big Buckaroo that the handles on the kitchen cabinets were hideous and just had to go. He said, alright, but let's focus on getting our boxes unpacked first. Time has gone by and the handles never grew on me, so I continued to complain about their ugliness.
See, they were pretty ugly. Now, I do know why these are the ones that are on the cabinets, there are 60 handles in my kitchen, yes 60. Any of you who have priced drawer pulls/cabinet handles lately know they can range from $1.00 (the hideous ones shown) to a median price of $4.00 per handle, so when you need 60, that is a pretty big chunk of change.
Hallelujah! This past weekend, 3 years later, my dream became a reality, brushed nickel handles!
It's the little things in life that I am starting to recognize and enjoy!
Have a great day,
The Park Wife
