kitchen sneak peek

We are getting close on the kitchen! I have primed, painted, pored over, picked out and procured. Oh, and panicked. The contractors are installing counters and tile early next week. I am so excited, I have never had anything that's new and mine like this before, what a huge treat. But, it has not been without headaches. I think the painting of the cabinets took about 2 months total, between little touch ups and second coats. I am still finding areas that need a little help but maybe now I am just being picky. And the countertop decision was not an easy one. I am still not sure if I did the right thing but at this point, I am just going with it and letting the decor gods guide me.

Today when I got home it was like Santa Clause had come, driving a UPS truck instead of a sled. The coveted faucet has arrived... I LOVE it. The only concern I have is that it is sort of tall. Will it look too tall in comparison with the cabinet above it? Here's hoping not.

Here are a couple sneaky peeky pics and I cannot wait to be able to post some before and afters!

me and my shiny new toy. this may make washing dishes semi-fun!

If I got excited over the arrival of two knobs and toted them all around town to show them off, I can't even imagine the excitement over a new faucet. Love the paint color and I can't wait to see before and after pics. Exciting stuff!

After gutting and remodeling (after all these years) from the floor joists - literally we could stand on the ground between the joists! up to the ceiling rafters...that horrible little bathroom; I am sure you still have nightmares about, I can understand our excitement and enjoy your descriptions of the kitchen project so much more... and to this day... the faucet is the focal point of our whole room... so you enjoy that height!!!

love love love the color of those cabinets... hmm maybe it is time to repaint the has been a few years...
