The Kitchen

Guess what?  My kitchen's almost done!

I thought we'd never get here and I'm so excited to share the rest of the progress with you!  I was just looking back at the last couple of posts about the kitchen and I can't believe how far we've come.

But, like the total tease that I am, this isn't a reveal post. 

The last finishing touches are happening this weekend and we're still waiting for the counter installation (Saturday morning).  But I couldn't resist checking back in with you.  I've missed you after all!

When last we spoke, I was bummed about the idea of caulking and filling the millwork on the ceiling.  (Does anyone else hear The Black Keys "Gold on the Ceiling" every time I say that???)

I'm not going to lie.  This. Job. Sucked.  But it looks killer!

Ceiling all painted out. 
You can also see the hood vent cabinet in this photo.  Jay built all our cabinets.  This one is waiting for spraying in this photo.  That's also why the paper is taped to the ceiling.  We didn't want  to risk overspray hitting the ceiling. 
 I know these pictures are crappy but I tried to document the process the best I could and my iphone was always handy. 
In the above photo, you can see the fridge cabinet and the trim around the window starting to take shape.  That is still the old sink and cabinet in the centre.  Remember, we are living through this crazy renovation so we kept the sink in place for as long as possible.
Here are the last couple progress shots of the kitchen during spraying:

Hood Vent Cabinet (and a furniture kick too!) in the process of spraying.

Fridge Cabinet & Peninsula in the process of spraying.
Corbels for the peninsula.
I'm not going to pretend this process has been easy.  There have been temper tantrums, budget freak-outs and tears.  It has been hard on our marriage, and our kids. But it has been so worth it.  I love the way the new kitchen is looking. 
I can't wait to show you the 'after' shots!
