Cabinets Arrived

Cabinets arrived on Friday and Hubby spent the weekend unpacking and installing my beautiful birch cabinets. He keeps reminding me that he is NOT a carpenter, but I just keep saying " yes dear" as he is moaning and letting some choice words fly! The cabinets appear blotchy in the photo..but are not at all like that. I feel like a kid in a candy store..I keep opening and closing the drawers and running my hands over them...Cant wait for the counters and all the finishng trims to be done.
Hubby figured a way to keep old sink hooked up until new one arrives and he even recycled the cardboard for our counter tops ( and he says he's not a carpenter)Ha!!
Along with all the disruption, I managed to celebrate another Birthday! Cards from friends and family, a sweet sign from the grandson, beautiful tulips from Jan and the hubby's persistence in getting my cabinets in for me this weekend.

kitchen in progress

Today more sanding and cleaning, new doors and I even baked a coffee cake and muffins.

Kitchen Remodel

I have wanted a new kitchen for many years, but whenever I thought about the demolition and mess that I would have to deal with....well, I would talk myself out of it. Finally I made the decision to take the plunge, take a deep breath and think of the new updated kitchen that I have wanted for so long!
