I know I should wait to post pics until the kitchen is finished. I know posting now, with the kitchen in its half-done state, missing the countertop, backsplash, and accoutrements, may ruin the surprise and give an anti-climatic end to the wait of the last three months. But I. just. can't. do. it. I'm just not that kind 'o gal.

So drumroll please... here is the new kitchen :)

Kitchen Cabinetry

As you can see, there's still a lot left to do. Mike the electrical guy will finish off his work next week, HandyMan will do the plumbing for the fridge line, appliances will come in, granite will be templated, manufactured, and installed, and finally HandyMan and I will install the backsplash. We're talking another three weeks until we can actually cook a meal here. 

Oh - and the handles - the fabulous handles which I ordered online and had shipped to my sister in New York who was going to bring them home on her next visit that was supposed to be next weekend - yeah, sister isn't coming home so I'll have to find another mole to smuggle the hardware :o\

But the cabinets are here so that's all that counts. My white kitchen. Yay!

  1. I can understand 'not being that kind of girl.' LOL!

    Once again, your style is completely different from mine and, yet, I can clearly see its aesthetics. I love the contrast of the white cabinets and the wallpaper in the dining room, where the wainscotting ties in everything.

    You should design homes for a living! I've got a client for you--me. I have an RV that needs a face lift. :-)

  2. Two words: LOVE IT. And it's not even completely done yet! Those cabs are so crisp and gorgeous. I would be dying to post pics too!

  3. Love all the white - so clean and crisp!

  4. Raven - an RV? Now that would be a fun decorating challenge! ;)

  5. Yay! Looks gorgeous! Our kitchens are almost gonna be twins. :)

  6. Love the new cabinets! I can't wait to see the finished room!

  7. Our kitchen is almost in the exact same state! We have our cabinets installed and painted. Now we're just trying to patiently wait for the countertops and tile backsplash to be installed.

    I can't wait to see what yours (and ours) looks like completed!


  8. Yes, an RV. That currently has the same colour scheme as my office at work. I am not spending a year in a tin box that looks like my CUBICLE! LOL

  9. smilingjudy and j&k - I'll be reading your blogs to check out your kitchens. Chances are, you'll have yours finished countertops and all before mine, lol.

  10. absolutely amazing!

  11. Can't wait to see the finished kitchen!! I love your Label cloud by the way!

    I think I first came to your blog looking for info on doing your own tile work.

    This kitchen's tile was it.

    It's looking good. I'm jealous. I'm finishing up framing and firring and pulling a bit of wire.


  13. Beautiful! I'm sure you can't wait for you and the hubs to start cooking now!

  14. Thanks alkemie! If you want the code, just email me and I can send it to you.

    Your kitchen looks fantastic! Where did you get the cabinets from?

  16. Found your site a few weeks ago. We are going to be building soon and LOVE the look of your kitchen. What is your opinion on thermafoil cabinets (I've heard negative things) I love the look.


Thank you for visiting! We love hearing from our readers!
