The cabinets & counter tops have been ordered. Now we just sit back (for three weeks) and wait. In the meanwhile, I am perfectly content with the plywood over my dishwasher (my NEW dishwasher!) and the large space under the sink without a cabinet.
Hubby finished the perfect little shelf for the microwave yesterday (more counter space!) and made up a shelf for my cookbooks as well. There are a couple little spots that need to be stained (corners and edges and the back half of the microwave shelf) but he'll do all the staining at once when the cabinets come in.
Now that the tools are put away, the floors are swept and most of my cabinets are reorganized the way I want them, it already feels like a much bigger and better laid out kitchen. The man knows how to make me happy, I'll tell you that!
Next on his list is moving the ductwork around underneath the kitchen so we have vents for heat. The one vent that is in there is currently blocked by the refrigerator and that just won't do at all. After that (or at the same time, knowing him!) will be wiring for the (yay!) new disposal and under cabinet lighting.
After everything is in and set, we'll have our tile guy come do the back splash (that's just one of those things we don't do ourselves) and then the last touch will be painting. I think it is actually possible that this project will be done before Christmas and therefore before Baby!
