my life as is

Posts Tagged ‘breakfast_bar

I got these on Friday after work. They are not exactly want I wanted but they are great and I really like them and many more posts will be written on them lol. See them below already put to work and I can say they even helped me scratch off one of the things on my to do list. Yes I managed to buy some albums online and burn onto cds. Was a happy birdie in the car today listening to new songs.  The last time I changed was in June?july 2009 yep that long ago. Not that into music but need some in the car especially in traffic the loud sing along works best.

Its been a long journey to this point where I can sit down and eat/surf/write. Let take a look back from where we can from.

Inspirations

What I can work with

To the drawing board

Insisting on what you want really pays off in life sometimes especially if you know what you want.  read here for the breakfast bar drama.

All that`s missing are the bar stools. Found these on amazon.

These are so perfect. The issue is that I will have to get them from Uk and getting them here is about £150 including shipping and delivery for the two. I have not seen these in any of the stores here expect one interior decor place and they are going for £220 pounds each. So definitely need to buy from uk.

I have found mainly these types here

Yes they are neat but are they comfortable. The breakfast bar is not only for eating but for studying as well. It will serve as both eating area and Home office so they do need to be comfortable. had found some stools for about 70 pounds but they where purple. they could work since tha art work there is purplish. cheape cheape lol

Kenny turned up on Saturday and started installing the kitchen cabinets. He started with the bottom ones and everything was looking great till he got to the breakfast bar. At first I thought I was overacting so I went back to the bedroom. A few minutes later I couldn’t help it I had to look again to be sure and was now positive that there was something wrong. I called my attention to him and told him that the under cabinets were too long/big for what I had in mind and we had to measure it again. And alas it was slightly longer than my specifications. I told him that these measurements are to be for the countertop and the storage was to be half of it so that I have leg room. The whole point of the table was to be used to eat and study (yes I’m planning on studying well sometime in the near future) so I definitely need leg room.

He tries to pin the blame on me and he gets put the specs I gave him and alas they are showing what I want. So left him. Sometime later I go back again (yes I’m one of those who don’t sit idle waiting for someone to create disaster for you.) I went back and the guy is continues mounting it. I repeated myself and also told him that I wanted glass doors for the living room facing cabinets and he just had wood on them.  He brings out my specs. I had not written glass doors on it but the drawing was had glass doors. We exchange the few words and I accepted the blame and told him I want glass.

For the fourth time or so I called him over the same issue and this time he had put the granite on top of huge incorrect storage. I told him straight up that it’s unacceptable and there’s no way I’m accepting this and I have been telling him since that I don’t want it like that. He has to redo it. By then he had finished mounting the wrong wooden doors (I had noticed him doing it before and had said wont insist isn’t it I have been telling him what I want and he just kept on insisting. Maybe I will like the doors once they are done and I don’t like them.) Asked him why he kept on putting them and he said bla bla bla I wasn’t really listening because they were just excuses.

Seriously see why he has to redo them.

See already in use 🙂 .  He promised to come tonight to take it since he didn’t have a car with him. Guess he was hoping if I start using it I won’t make him take it off. and he difinately doesnt know..
