Alright, not so much finished, but seriously close. Is that a beautiful sight or what?
Now, obviously, this stuff is not in "final" position. But our man arranged everything for us today to get an idea of how it will all look when it's "really" in. And, to make sure we've left enough space in the walkways / paths for cabinet doors to open, etc. Duh. That would be smart. This is why we do not attempt to do this ourselves.
I'm still a little nervous about the chocolate island. If yall love me as much as you say you do, you won't dare prey on this little inkling of hestitation I have festering in the back of my head that it's not going to look right. The granite will tie it all together...right?
I tell a lie. There's still a ton to do. Those pesky windows still need to be replaced. Bonus points for the person who saw that the window on the left is lower than the counter!
The skyscraper on the left is the pantry. Not the giant, walk-in butler's pantry I've dreamed of, but hey, I've got a place to store stuff and that's all that matters. :::Shutters back to the memory of the old kitchen with three measley cabinets::: wait. :::Remembers new kitchen still has limited cabinet space but is quickly comforted by thought of pantry::: Ahhh.
Surprisingly, I haven't started obsessing about what color to paint the walls in the kitchen / dining room yet. For the first time in months, my purse has been paint swatch free, and it's kind of liberating. We'll probs hit up Lowes this weekend and that will be enough to set me back into full blown paint color obsession mode. Strangely, I'm okay with that....
