Kitchen is done..........well part of it anyway!

Ok, so after 5 straight days of working from 8:30 am til around 8:30 pm The Man and I got the kitchen and my bathroom done.  I can't even tell you how happy I am with the way it looks!  Just gorgeous and now I can't wait to do the other half of the kitchen and The Man's bathroom.  I'm supposed to be getting stuff put back and organized today, but a girl needs a day off right??  I'm not sure if I mentioned this in a previous post, but we have decided to hold off on refinishing the floor in the kitchen and the hallway until spring.  That way we can leave our three big dogs outside 24/7 until it's good and cured (probably 3 days or so) and also we can open up all of the windows and turn the attic fan on so as not to get ourselves all whacked out on fumes! 

This is the view from standing in the main part of the kitchen looking toward my front door and slightly left

This is the view from standing at my front door and looking to the left

This is standing in the main kitchen more straight on so you can see the new cabinets and counter and you can see the new ceiling fan.  I can't tell you how in love I am with that gorgous 6 feet of counter space!!  Yipeeee!!!
This is the view from the front porch as you come in the door.  Please excuse the disastrous mess that is over there by the fridge.......oh yeah and see that shiny dishwasher?  Know what I use that for??  I use it as a dish DRAINER, so that I don't have to have one cluttering up counter space.  I don't use it to wash dishes as it doesn't get them clean enough for me, but it's fabulous as a dish drainer!  ;)

I also want to say thanks to everybody that's been leaving me comments!  I love getting them!
And this is another view of the fireplace and the new mantle.  I love it so much! I'm standing in my bathroom door, the Hoosier cabinet is to my left and the front door is on the wall to my right!

Ok.........till next time............and I've got lots of other stuff to update you on, from my seed starting adventure, to kidding season, to Steve's new apartment, to The Man's dodge.......



  1. It looks so good! I totally agree with you on waiting until spring to finish the floors. You guys did a great job!

  2. You did an awesome job. Everything looks great. Don't blame you on the floor. It would be much easier when you can open all the windows.

  3. It looks fabulous! I'm so jealous. Can y'all come to my house for a week?

  4. I'm so wantin ' me some wood floors. Love the wall colors too.
