Well, I've got good news and I've got bad news. The good news is, we are FINALLY remodeling our kitchen and upstairs living area!! The bad news is, we are currently living in our basement. The good news is that I have a hair dressing studio in my basement, so I have room for a makeshift kitchen space.
