Can I get a drum roll....FINALLY????
Thankfully, after many weeks of work (and a whole lot of waiting), the kitchen remodel is just about wrapped up!
I spent yesterday finishing paint touch-ups, scrubbing the floor, and "putting it together". The morning started out gray and dreary and I really didn't want to pick up the paint brush and get started. But, as the day progressed, the sun broke through the clouds and I found my energy and spirits building. By late afternoon, sunlight was flooding through the windows and highlighting my progress ~ just what I needed to keep me motivated and going!
I know there are boxes still hiding out there in the garage, so some modifications will undoubtedly have to be made, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say we're about 90% done. So, I'm just going to throw some pictures in here and give you a look-see....
You notice that there is no hardware on the cabinets yet. That is intentional. We're still waiting on some of the doors to be replaced due to finish problems...and I'm not sure what kind of handles/knobs I want ~ if any. So, we're living with it this way for awhile.
I'm so happy about the way the beadboard turned out on the backsplash ~ Eddie did such a great job installing it. I had a vision in my head of how it would look and it surpassed my expectations for brightening the area under the cabinets. (Well, the white beadboard combined with the pair of brushed nickel accent lamps I picked up at a local shop ~ $15 for the pair.)
A couple of my favorite touches...
