verse of the day

Sunday, December 6, 2009 still in progress

Our kitchen is taking MUCH longer than anticipated and of course the holidays are FAST approaching.  Don't we all work better under PRESSURE! (sure)  I am so sorry for the time lapse in posting.  For this reason,  I thought I'd give you a bit of a glimpse into the progress so far.  It's beginning to look a lot more like a kitchen...just like it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  We have some finishing to do on woodwork and then the distressed paint job on lower cupboards.  There may be some things that will HAVE to wait until January. (sigh)  Without further ado, here are some pics....

 Floor before:

Floor after:

Aren't the floors just gorgeous!  Charlie, our local floor re-finisher did an amazing job.

The bottom cupboards have their base coat on them, awaiting the top coat, crackle paint and some distressing.  In the upper photo, there is a piece of wood (on right) lying across the ladder which are the "feet" to the bottom cupboards so they look like furniture.  Our carpenter friend, Darrin, made that along with all the cupboard doors (soon to be installed), and trash bin pull-out (my fav).
So stay tuned for the full reveal...coming soon to this blog!
