Kitchen update

November 4th, 2011

After taking a little break from working on the kitchen, Mr. Project finally got his hands dirty and started to build the cabinets for the other side. He picked up wood and got started on the 21st of October, and in the last two weeks built all of the lower and upper cabinets for the other side of the kitchen. On Tuesday of this week he demo-ed what remained of the pre-existing kitchen, and started installing. We also were able to get a plumber AND electrician that same day and they made quick work of the few placement modifications that we needed.

Anyway, I think they are looking so great! We are planning on putting cream marble on this side of the kitchen and so tomorrow we’re going to go pick out our slab, and on Tuesday we’ll make the final decision on the backsplash tile. All the cabinets should be installed by then, and all that will be left to do is paint! So it won’t be long and I’ll be posting FINISHED pics!!

I asked for bead-board on the backs of the upper cabinets (which will have glass in the doors) – I love it! It just needs to have the header and footer board painted to match. You can also see the beginnings of the range vent hood and a little glimpse of the fabulous Mr. Project.

So just a quick update, but we are getting super excited over here — and making do with no stove.
