Floors Complete!

And they are amazing. Nothing crazy - just pre-finished oak but they match the rest of the house and uh WE FINALLY HAVE FLOORS. Here are two pics for now... more posts comin. Just been a bit hectic topped off by lazy. The usual.

Next up is paint. I have to go find samples for the wall and cabinets. For the cabinets I like the second one down - Nimbus Cloud by Sherwin Williams. I'm also hunting for fabric to cover the counter stool seats.

And the winner is: New Countertops!

Yes I'm watching the Oscars and posting these pics.

Our granite has arrived. We are no longer preparing food on a jankety old door and narsty particle board. We are one step closer to civility.

The white is just primer but it sure does transform the cabinets. Just as we hoped. PHEW.

I've been lucky in that my work takes me to Florida but I still have to return to THIS. At least it's pretty and my dogs are cute as pie.

This is getting deadly serious...

We're close. Very close.  But I also realized that a year ago I was naive enough to think that this would be an easy endeavor. HA.

At least now our structure is sound as a pound. So here's where we are:
  • Cupboards are up but still need to be sanded down and painted.  We're painting them Ashwood Moss by Sherwin Williams.
  • New hardware needed... I can't get brass out of my head...
  • Countertops have been ordered. We went with Supreme White granite.
  • New stove and fridge are arriving tomorrow!
  • Subway tiles with dark grout on the backsplash.
  • Oak flooring to match the rest of the downstairs. Not my favorite but it'll make the place feel bigger if it's continuous throughout...
  • Paint on the walls of course... 

And other fun stuff but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Hehe... This is me face planted after a
business trip.
