Working Order

We are still plugging along on the kitchen. We have had some pretty exciting milestones recently, though.

Our countertops were delivered and installed....

Woot! Woot!

Messy insides but looking good on top!


Our plumber finished his work, we had our inspection and I washed my first load of dishes in my new dishwasher! (Sorry, no pictures of that. It's personal. No, I did not cry.)

The crystals got put on my pretty little light over the sink.

I am so pleased with this pendant!

Girly? Yeah!

We are slowly doing the finish work. There are many decisions about what would work best. Honestly, I had to look at images on Pinterest to decide how we were going to trim the doors. There are too many opinions out there. Sometimes I become paralyzed by the options and can't make a decision. This is what we decided to do.

Back door and baseboard.

Rosettes to match the rest of the house.

Doorway to what was the dining room.

Our thresholds are still not done. I ordered the Mohawk flooring thresholds that are sold to match our flooring. We were not happy with the quality of the product, at all. It was thin and kept splitting as we tried to install. We will be returning the rest and buying unfinished product that we will stain ourselves.

I am dying to get the kitchen decorated but have to wait. There is no point doing any of that when I would only have to take things down to paint again. The walls only have one coat right now.

A little peak....

For now, everything is in working order. Dinners are being made in our kitchen once again. The "camp kitchen" in my front room has been broken down. That room will be the dining room and will undergo some changes after the kitchen is done. Yes, there are projects lined up..... But, for now we plug along in the kitchen. It is nice to be getting things in order. We are meant to be ordered and to have things in order and it just feels so much better to have things in their right place. Ahhh......

This weekend the girls and I will be at a baby shower. That will give Mr. FixIt some good quiet time to work without distractions. I anticipate that there will be much more done come the end of the day tomorrow. I'll keep you posted! (hehe)
