    Oh Victoria, not sure how to tell you this, but there is a post on Design Sponge featuring a Brooklyn Brownstone with your grand kitchen cupboard dreams made into a reality…I saw it and immediately thought, oh Lord, the itchy rabid raccoon is gonna lose her mind when she sees those amazing re-purposed parlor cabinets, now kitchen cabinets…take a look. You might have grounds for a fair argument now…

    If that $25 sink was from New Jersey then you might have actually been in my town! If you ever are, I invite you over for tea and lively discussion about GFT’s. So glad to have you back. Kisses to Elvis.

    Love to read your posts as a fellow lover of “All old things”! Just to tip you back into the direction that it is actually possible to fit old cabinets and counters into a beautiful and practial kitchen: look what the guy in An Urban Cottage did: http://anurbancottage.blogspot.no/2013/12/counter-deconstruction.html . Several posts there about his progress.
    Don’t give up 🙂

    Dear ‘Just me’
    I only read now ALL the comments as I said before and I ‘just’ want to say that your post has me in tears. I still have my Hero Husband and he is by far not as accommodating to my hoarder squirrel activities, but about three years ago when we tried to sell our gorgeous French home (and couldn’t – for good reasons – but that’s another story), I put tons of stuff in boxes, all well packed, wrapped up, described on lists, so that ‘I could just take it all out when and once we moved back to Switzerland’….. you guess the outcome, I am sure. Still packed up, my TREASURES, not missed at all or only once a while, more order (and meanwhile more stuff I LOVE, every piece with a story and a history) overall. And YET, I still don’t have the courage to dispose of it all – so much love, project ideas, brainstorms and just ‘fantasizing’ involved…. Not to mention the money spent!
    At every removal (I have lived in Canada, England, Switzerland, France) I must have given away between 200-800 books and….. on my last trip to UK from France where I live now, I returned to F with some 120 new ones! Is there help for me?
    I wish YOU much strength to go through this task, courage not to cry your way through every box you look at – keep the ‘conversation’ flowing with your husband – it’s all part of the healing. I pray for you.
    Kiki
    PS-Sorry Victoria, for having taken over so much of YOUR space.

    Looks good here (Im in favor of a showpiece, liking the contrast) with the prefab cabinets: http://www.fortthomasmatters.com/2015/10/181-year-old-piano-gets-new-life-in.html?m=1
