Better pictures of the progress...

Demo! Not so fun when there are no sledgehammers.

Our dining room turned kitchen storage/staging area

I'm a lucky lady.  Check out those jorts.

Ruh Roh.  Let's just say we had a little mishap with the plumbing.  Specifically, the hot water.  Good thing we have a sense of humor... and Matt knows where the water shut off valve is for the house.  It was pretty hilarious.

Hardwoods went in (now we can do whatever we want on this wall... built-ins, furniture, whatevs.  Got plans for new built-ins though... ones that fit a modern day TV).

Shot of the old lighting.

Paint (BM Seapearl)

This is a little "drop zone" area - there will be two shelves above this, but I need to find different corbels.  The ones I ordered were way too big.

Not completely finished, but recessed lights!
These pictures are a MUCH better representation of the color of everything.  Hardware is mostly up now (need some longer screws for a few cabinets), and it looks great.  We just did very simple Metrik pulls from Ikea.  The cabinets are a grayish green color, but they really change depending on the light.  I had cabinet buyer's remorse (this is typical for me... buyer's remorse, that is) after purchasing, wondering if the color is really what I wanted, but I love them!  Even with a lot of finishing left to do, the kitchen feels SO different... so much warmer and cozier.  I can't wait to get it done (for more reasons than one... have I mentioned that living in a construction zone kind of sucks?)!

Of COURSE your Gator husband has to wear jorts while doing manly-labor. ;-)

It's looking great! Can't wait to see the finished product!
