Time for another update on our kitchen remodel. THIS is where we started at this summer… and here is where we ended:
Pretty good progress for a busy schedule that never seems to be slowing down and a new baby thrown in the mix. I really like the way the kitchen feels with a few of the cabinets open… I may only paint the short cabinets (above the fridge and above the hood) for now and think about the others. The thought of open cabinetry or glass in a few of the doors intrigues me.
Anyway, here is our updated list of things left to do in this space:
- Cabinets – finish painting them white, add new hardware, spray paint hinges black. – Still a work in progress. See thoughts above.
Ceiling – patch two holes in ceiling (made to see if we could remove a load-bearing wall).– This one is finally done! Well, semi-done. The hubs just needs to sand, texturize, and paint.
- Light fixture – replace fluorescent lighting… TBD. – New fixture is picked out and patiently waiting for us… Once I get my first paycheck from returning to work, this baby will be replaced!
- Appliances – replace oven and dishwasher; install microhood microwave… TBD. – Still TBD. I would like to replace a few around Christmas. We’ll see.
- Shelves – install two open shelves above dishwasher (??). – A definite to-do item for this Fall. We are hoping to tackle this in a couple of weekends. By we, I mean me… hoping the hubs will jump on the bandwagon. Keep your fingers crossed.
There you have it! Hoping to have another update posted in a month or so. I love how this space is transforming into a more functional kitchen for our little family.
