My youngest graduated from high school in 2013. In an effort to impress all his friends, we decided to make some major changes in our kitchen.
Okay, it wasn’t about impressing anyone. It was about taking our house from the 70s and moving it into the late 80s or early 90s. We weren’t so bold as to think we could bring it into the 2000s.
But, we quickly realized what started as a very minor paint job became a very major overhaul. If we painted these cabinets, we would have to paint those cabinets. If we removed this tile we must replace this countertop. If we replaced this countertop, we were required to get a new sink (pictured here, hardware not included).
The sad thing is that we never finished the remodel. We stopped just shy of the countertops, backsplash, and kitchen sink. It wasn’t only a matter of time, energy, or interest. Did you know that remodeling a kitchen also costs a lot of money?
Our local PBS station just finished it’s fund drive and successfully raised a whopping amount of money for radio waves. Seriously, RADIO WAVES. While laudable, I personally believe people would rather invest in brick and mortar (or countertops and tile). That’s why we are starting our first-ever Kitchen Remodel Fund Drive!
And so, here’s the pitch: Please send us money.
It is a great way to support a worthy cause. For your generous donation, we will put nameplates on each item that you want to fund. Underwrite a cabinet and get your name handsomely engraved on a small brass plaque prominently displayed, telling everyone that you are a supporter of the remodel.
For $25, you can proudly proclaim that you contributed to a cabinet door.
Feeling extra generous? A backsplash tile can be named in your honor for only $100.
For those big hearts and big givers, a generous donation of $250 will get you two feet of countertop and your name engraved for all perpetuity. We have 10 more feet of the countertop to go, so call NOW!
Phone lines are open. Call today and make your pledge.
