NY Spring Cure: Week 2 - The Kitchen

NY Spring Cure: Week 2 - The Kitchen

Andrea is in for the 1st time! Check out her blog at www.lilkidthings.blogspot.com and her full survey. And what would you say, Warm or Cool?

Hey Curees! Some of you have been gravitating to Cures on sites that are not near your home. That is fine. After doing a lot of thinking, I'd like you all to find the one that makes you the most comfortable and feel free to visit in and out of the others as well. It is good, however, to have one that you call home, so I urge you to find it. We'll be sure to get diplomas out to all of you who finish, regardless of where you choose to document your Cure.

This Week's Assignment: Last week you got inspired, this week you go to work. In the Deep Treatment you are going to focus on the kitchen. You will declutter and clean your kitchen from the top down and then cook a meal you actually like! There are other smaller tasks as well, such as filtering your tap water and planning a housewarming, but the kitchen is your target.

In the One Room Workout, you will probably be focusing on another room in your home. At this point, your task is to arrange the room on paper to best meet your needs. Additionally, it is time to take your inspiration and crystallize it into your vision for the project. Remember, once you have a clear port to sail towards, the trip becomes much easier.

>> Welcome back to Pixie!

Welcome to Brainygirl, who's back for second time:

Now with a Cure Support Group I'm hoping to finally "move in" to my New York 1 BR rental apartment (when I first arrived two years ago I was a physician with no life, then lived with my boyfriend - left behind my career and the boyfriend as well, so instead of my apartment being a repository for clothes and Things I Don't Use, I'm planning on making a home!

Brainygirl - emails are coming. We had trouble so many names to the list, but should have it done by Friday.

Welcome as well to swtvi65, who just moved to the Bronx from Brooklyn and has a great view (minus the laundry!)

I love Jany's new flowers - the easiest thing you can do for your home. She says that Spring is "gently arriving" in Switzerland.

Good for laurelann, for getting all her before pics done. Just documenting the project allows you to see your home in a new light.

Want inspiration? Check out Jen64, who has been "going gang-busters" already by doing the entire bedroom:

It was a good week! Ceiling has been painted, so we were able to replace the fan! Finished one panel of curtains. Wow.

Sorry, that I couldn't get to everyone. There are so many of you I'm going to do the best I can and get to a bunch in each post. Thanks for putting your links in the comments. They're easier to find there.

Best, Maxwell
