Hi there! For those of you keeping score, at the end of last week the kitchen was an empty room with torn-up walls and loose wires. Well, things happened this week, and as of now we have been:
Yes, on Friday the first few cabinets were installed. They look great! We picked Martha Stewart cabinets from the Home Depot in a color called Ocean Floor. So far, I love them! All of the doors and drawers are soft-close, and there are a lot of nice extras, like super susans. Eventually, I'll also be able to show you the built-in cutlery organizer, floor to ceiling pantry cabinet and a cute cork-board organization center!
Here is where the fridge will go - love that "built in" look!
Here is a pic of the lower corner "super susan"!
This open upper cabinet is going to be for cookbooks! (There will be a regular cabinet with doors above it)
The wiring for the wall outlets and the under-cabinet lighting are in place:
Here is a pic of the floors now - no more dirty linoleum, just dirty plywood:
Next week will be a short one due to the July 4 holiday, but according to the schedule, the cabinets should be 100% done and the flooring installation will start. So far, things have gone according to schedule so we'll see if our good luck continues!
I'll be back next week to update you on our progress. Can't wait to stop eating microwaved meals off paper plates!!!
