Anyway, without further ado, I present to you the (almost) final kitchen pictures:
First up, we have a detail that we didn't pressure ourselves to finish until we'd had a good, long rest. It turns out, putting in a whole kitchen worth of cabinets wears you out and then you want to spend the next few weekends vegging on the couch, crocheting a blanket while you watch BSG, even though your wonderful husband did most of the work. SO, we left the crown moulding until later, but it looks awesome and gorgeous, and calculating the correct angles at which to cut the pieces was a...well it sucked. There were expletives. But it looks awesome:
And the left side:
And, one of my very favorite details:
Shiny new stainless steel faucet. It will eventually match our appliances.
They will all be stainless steel, and all the handles will match all the handles on the cabinets. This is very important. Because I'm nuts.
But first we need a floor.
All in good time.
