Well, I braved the floor sander and the dust just for YOU! They let me into the kitchen for a couple of veeeeeeerrrry quick photos. And, I got to meet with the electrician although he was very nice, he is going to have to lower a few lights for me. I was so sorry but I like them lower…and he was very kind to oblige. Thankfully, he had not cut the wire or the chain so it will all work out. It is funny how some of the men who have worked on the house look at me like I am crazy about some of the choices I have made. Girls, they just don’t read the blogs I do! lol I know some stuff. OR I just think I do. lol
Ok, once again I am just babbling away and am sidetracked by my own crazy, random thoughts.Here are a few kitchen shots:
My new shelves which will soon be painted white…
and here is a side shot. I just love these and am already thinking about all the
I wanted clean lines and dark stain.
Originally, I wanted white and that is what is in my inspiration notebook. I think white will have to come later in life. I am trying to keep my house very casual for the kids right now. Our house now is a little fussy and I am ready to relax a little and not worry so much. If they wipe a chocolate hand on these, I won’t see it for while ;) They are rustic oak. My contractor calls them Peruvian…lol. He says they look like something you would find in a shed in the Peruvian jungle. He thinks he is funny. I wanted a “country” type of look…and I have seen many English cottage pics with oak cabinets in a dark stain and I think they are so lovely and welcoming….so that is what I went for. White cabinets with a sparkly chandelier will be a few years down the road. Don’t get me wrong…I will still have some sparkle and bling bling in this kitchen too…so be sure to check back!
I thought I would pop back in and post a few before photos of the kitchen:
We have come a looooooong way since November. I still can’t believe that all of this was just left when we took possession of the house. I am glad that the mess is gone and all that is behind us.
