Cabinets are Complete

What a day.  The cabinet guys completed their work, our electrical inspection passed, we can now find our bed again and with the exception of the dryer, all appliances are in the kitchen.  Here's a look at the kitchen now:

Washer has to be pushed back and dryer put in place.  The cabinet to their side will be my Espresso machine area.

The cabinet by the fridge will hold the microwave on the counter top.

Things left to do - countertops and 4 inch backsplash, then travertine tile on that whole wall, wire in a light above the sink and a light under the far right top cabinets (both lights will have a switch to the left of the window and finish the electrical connections once the tile is done.  Then one last electrical inspection.

We will have to install the stove vent above the range and hook up the electrical wire on it.  Travertine tile will be on the back wall as well.  The cabinet to the left of the stove will hide my garbage can.  But first I have to buy a shorter garbage can to fit, oy vey!!

Another view looking into the kitchen at where the sink will go, etc

Another view of the other side
 Our drawer pulls and cupboard door knobs.  A bronze finish and our new sink faucet will be the same finish.  Should look really nice when all put together.

My poor hubby is just beat, he has worked so hard repairing a couple of walls, sanding, priming, painting, up early to put a second coat of paint on the one wall.  I am telling you the guy deserves a luxury vacation, but I think he'll just settle for sleeping in the house and the comforts of home and stretching out a bit.  Even the cats are sick of the small space.  I swear the dog has learned to roll her eyes at us she is so tired of it all.

Happy Stitches and Hugs,

Your new kitchen is beautiful, even unfinished. I can't wait to see it finished. I'll bet not as much as you.

It's looking really good! I hope you both get some rest over the weekend.

Somehow I think the dog knew how to roll her eyes before all this...!

It's looking good now, and will be just beautiful when finished!

It's looking wonderful, Tammy! You and CR have been hard working troopers through all this - you both deserve a nice bottle of wine and some time off!

Beautiful work. I bet you are tired, too. It's the heat and all thrown together, this time of year. But it looks just wonderful! Thanks for sharing.
