Ugh.  Well..I still have some backsplash tile to add, toe-kicks to add, some trim to put up around the window and the door, DH needs to hook up the extractor fan and I/we are going to replace three of the doors on the wall cabinet with glass (just a little bit too much beadboard) but mostly done.  Kinda.

At least you don’t think I’ve been slacking off and not blogging just because I am sitting on the sofa watching Gossip Girl or something.  Which I haven’t.  I promise!


You can’t really see it, but we closed off a doorway to the right of the ancient stove that we free-cycled!

Almost after:

Yes, I really did screw the holes into the wrong side of the front panel on that drawer front.  Yes, a replacement is on order.  I am a dope.

These are the wall cabinets we are replacing with glass fronts!  yippee!

This is the gas cooktop that I scored on craigslist for $150!  Woot!!  Need to install that extractor fan next!

Hope to be completely done by the end of the year…maybe sooner.  Then I can show you all the fun things I made for Christmas!

Hope you are all enjoying your holiday season!
