Hello everybody! This Friday during our promised 20 Time in class, Mr. Provenzano stressed the importance of having a clear vision of what we are planning on saying during our presentations in June. I struggled a little bit with finding the perspective I wanted to give, and had a hard time finding the deeper meaning that corresponded with a kitchen renovation. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to give a memorable, insightful speech without rambling about paint swatches and cabinetry. However, after talking some things over with my Mom/mentor, I decided that I wanted to talk about how my experience taught me more about time management (something I wasn't very good at), dedication to a project/setting your mind to something, and how getting your hands dirty can have such a satisfying feeling at the end when I can finally walk into our new kitchen. I may even add how I enjoyed 20 Time and give my support for it.
In regards to the actual kitchen, I have set up a workshop in my basement that will aid me in the rest of the painting of the cabinets and walls. I will be visiting a paint store very soon to look at wall colors with my Mom. I have also browsed houzz.com for ideas for a backsplash.
Thanks for reading!
