Kitchen Progress

It's been awhile since we've posted.  We're busy at work finishing up the kitchen remodel.  We're 2 years into this project, and will be very happy when it's done.  This has been a part-time endeavor, as many other projects have taken precedence and prevented us from completing this project.

We finished the drywall sanding and the next step is to prime and paint, which with any luck that will be happening this week.  Take a look:

After months of deliberating on colors, etc. we finally decided on the final pallet.  The solid color to the left (Hubbard Squash @ SW) is the base wall color, and the paper is a border from Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers that we plan to use around the dining area of the kitchen.

Other kitchen news:

  • No more knob and tube wiring.
  • We've decided to paint the cabinets as opposed to trying to refinish them (they're pickled oak).  More on that soon.
  • We're making room for a wall of ovens (double oven + a separate microwave).
  • We're looking into having gas installed for the cooktop.
  • We've acquired hard maple countertops that we'll be installing.
There is a lot happening in this room.  It's definitely at a turning point where things should start coming together much faster.  I already like using it more and it's not even finished!  That might have something to do with the professional series copper color KitchenAid mixer I bought us for Christmas :-)
