Here's a little reminder of where we started ~ or should I say "what we started out with???
Then on Saturday, Eddie got the faucet hooked up and we now have running water in the kitchen! I can't even begin to tell you how MAJOR this is. After weeks of stumbling to the bathroom in the mornings to get water for coffee, I will gladly readjust! (And see that last little remnant of orange paint over his shoulder on the window? Say adios, baby! Your days are numbered...)
Finally, on Sunday evening, we had our first homecooked meal in the "new" kitchen. What a wonderful sight to see pots simmering on the stove. What a wonderful aroma filled the house after so many weeks of take-out! Can I get a big AMEN?!?!?!
Decoratively speaking, we still have some work to do. The beadboard needs to be installed and painted above the backsplash. There is still a bit of trim that needs additional painting. We're still debating on the "light fixture vs. fan/light" in the dining room. Accessories and small appliances still need to find a permanent place....and the list goes on.
But, let me just take a moment to REVEL in how far we have come! It feels so good to have a functioning kitchen again. And what we've gotten done looks even better than we dreamed ~ so we are encouraged. And motivated to get it all pulled together!
I'm linking up with Metamorphasis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch, so check it out!
Hanging in there and washing dishes in the kitchen tonight, Friends!
