I finally finished painting the kitchen after putting it off for 3 months and when you paint a kitchen, there is a lot of stuff that has to be moved. Like canisters and toasters and every. single. thing. that lives on the counter tops. Then there are all of the appliances that have to be moved and painted behind, and I don't know how it is in your house, but at our house, we don't move our appliances
very often ever to clean the floor underneath them. So you can just imagine what the floor looked like underneath our fridge. There were oodles of dust bunnies plus a huge sticky spot from the Rotten Watermelon Accident of '09. We had to come up with a way to keep Emily from crawling into the kitchen (this wouldn't have been a problem if we'd painted, um, 3 months ago) and since we do not have in our possession a baby gate, Denny rigged up this little contraption.
We like to keep it classy, y'all.
