At work, every day, I hear, “Is your kitchen done yet?!” in annoyingly enthusiastic voices, to which I respond, “Nooooooo.” And they’re all, “Oh my GOSH it’s the longest kitchen remodel EVER!” [They're telling ME.] I KNOW that, thank you very little, and how about bringing me an oven-baked entree like lasagna or meatloaf or some other meaty noodly vegetabley casserole that is impossible to prepare in the microwave or on the grill, but fine, we’re good, we’ve been making due since February 1st and we’ll live? (Thanks, Mandi, for the delicious pasta that night! I still owe you your tupperware.)
It’s like the Murphy Brown storyline.
House painter Eldin Bernecky hangs around for six-seasons, working continuously but never finishing. He lingers in the home to chip away at various grand projects that include “painting short pants on Humpty Yeltsin” on baby Avery’s mural. And in the way Eldin ends up widely considered to be the favorite character on the show, it would seem that some players in the WrightWorks cast are emerging as fan favorites on the “Dan and Beth Kitchen Remodel Show.”
But, in my heart and mind, the gorgeous Sonoma Jade backsplash, still awaiting its grout and completion on the opposite wall, and the Blizzard tops in the primary work area are the stars of this feature presentation.
