I'm moving in- to the kitchen, that is. Hoorah!! Last night we finished the floors and installed the island counter. We also moved in a few things. The kitchen is a mess but slowly coming together.
Don't you love the cardboard floors? It's a good thing we haven't taken all the cardboard boxes from the cabinets in for recycling yet. We just couldn't seem to get through the dog's head that he should only step in the middle of the tiles while the grout was drying. We had to repair a couple of toenail holes before we learned.
And, last night I cooked for the first time in my new kitchen. YUM! Black pasta with alfredo sauce and a bit of turkey sausage. A big tossed salad (organic, of course) and it was a fabulous celebration dinner!
The baking center:
We still have some trim work to do. I was sorely disappointed to learn that the lumberyard no longer carries the chair rail I wanted. Grrr... We've got a few other places to look to find one I like, but I'm disappointed. Also, we need to finish the back panel on the island and the end caps for it but that shouldn't be too bad.
It's coming together. All in all, I'm proud of us. We did a great job- faster than a contractor would have done it. I hereby declare that the extreme kitchen make-over is COMPLETE! (well, close enough!)
