We didn't have a ton of time to work on it this last weekend, but we finished building all the lower guts, drawers, and doors. The Dad also got almost all of the knobs on. Is it weird that I pet the drawer pulls when I walk by them?
I spent almost all day yesterday unpacking boxes. Real dishes are in the cupboards. Silverware, cooking utensils, baking dishes, pots and pans, etc. Nearly everything is put away.
Check out these corner cabinets.
We swapped out the lazy susans, that we originally had planned, at the last minute for these.
They're in both corners on either side of the sink.
I love that there's a drawer on top.
Besides the obvious dishwasher desire, the second thing on my list of new kitchen must haves was a sheet pan cupboard.
You have no idea how excited I am about this dang thing.
The door slides out, instead of swinging open, then there's two drawers inside.
We were able to put in dividers in the bottom to make muffin tins, cookie sheets, etc, stand up.
I'm in love with it.
Glasses, coffee cups, plates, etc., have all found homes.
And super organized utensil and gadget drawers.
The window and door trim is still on the to-do list, as well as figuring out how we'll trim out the tops of the upper cabinets where the uneven gap shows. This week we'll get the sheet rock on the back of the short wall, and I'm hoping to get the guts of the tall pantry cabinet built and installed. Once that's done, I can put away my pantry stuff, and get the metal shelf out of the dining room. And that fridge. I can not wait to get that dang fridge outta there. We're putting it in the garage for drinks and backup storage.
With the boxes unpacked, there's room now, we just haven't gotten to it.
What else? Oh yeah, the ceiling. Ick.
But here's some full room shots of where we're at now.
Friday is our counter install.
I can. not. wait.
I want it to hurry up and get here!!!!
And then, by Sunday, we'll have water.
Did you hear me?
And a dishwasher for the first time in twelve years of living here!!!!!!!
Hurry up, Friday.
