When the counters showed up on Friday they finally (finally!) tipped the scales in favor of our kitchen looking more like an actual, habitable kitchen rather than a cracked out construction zone.
Please ignore the holes in the walls, shims sticking out under the cabinets, no backsplash, no vent hood, tape-instead-of-handles, the unfinished back of the island, and a whole lot of crazy construction going on. All that is relatively minor compared to the fact that we’ve moved on from living on paper plates and bathtub-dish-washing to having a semi-functional kitchen.
Yeah, that’s right, you saw a little sink sneak peek in there. I’ll update more on what we did to get to this point, but for now we are enjoying having counters, a sink, and even taking the cardboard and protective plastic off of our oven. Progress.
Eeek! It is just so fun to see
your my vision coming to life! I must say, I enjoyed my first happy hour in our new kitchen, and it was amaze. Now I feel like we’re getting to the super fun part – picking hardware, installing the pendants, and adding some edginess to the kitchen. I really hope I’m not over-promising on the edginess here – I probably am. What I’m going for on top of the white-on-white-on-white background is just something that feels like us – a little quirky and a lot awesome. I am so leaving out the dork part of the equation.
Anyone else in the middle of a never-ending project? It’s gotta be done by Christmas…
