Homeowner with ADD

I have a mountain of wood in the backyard that was fished out the pool this winter.  The cover is shredded and will need to be replaced.  I'm seriously considering replacing the pool with an underground bunker.  It will fill in the space AND feed my inner survivalist/conspiracy theorist. (Of course, it's never good to feed the paranoia, but I am a fan of the new Eminem song, The Monster.)

Did you know that there is a Pinterest board dedicated to underground bunkers?  Of course you did.

I finished painting the kitchen this weekend - and by finished, I mean that I got all the wall areas done with a first and second coat (except for the area behind the stove that still had a plexiglass cover over wallpaper because The Spouse won't pull out the stove.  But it's very museum-like, so maybe I can convince people it's a peak back into 1973?).  I haven't even begun to dream of when I might do the trim.

When we first bought Wayne Manor, I had planned to use Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations to paint the cabinets "Federal Gray".

Rustoleum Cabinet Transformation....Federal Gray

Then I had a change of heart and decided that a wood color would look better, so bought it in Cabernet.

Kitchen Ideas:  Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations - Cabernet Glazed.  Counter: Desert Sand.  Brushed nickel hardware and stainless steel appliances & a nice backsplash would make it look way nicer.

But now I'm wavering back to the gray because I won't be able to afford to replace the awesome green floor and counters for, oh, years.

The paint color on the walls is Silver Drop, by Behr.  It's a great neutral with a touch of warm green to it.  It's also the exact paint color we used in the Batcave and have now carried over to Wayne Manor primarily to save The Spouse from angst over another decision:

Oh, how I miss the old kitchen!

New Kitchen - The Row

The trim is White Dove by Benjamin Moore:

But, of course, all of this is predicated on me finding the right Time/Energy equation to make this all happen.  But I think I'll postpone painting the trim until I decide on the cabinets...right?
