Kitchen update

6:59 PM

I feel like I've been giving the status update of "two more weeks" for months now.  But we are FINALLY down to the last two weeks!!

The kitchen countertops have been installed, along with the dishwasher, refrigerator and cooktop.


All of our kitchen cabinets, under cabinet lighting, and sink came from Ikea.  The cabinets are relatively easy to assemble, albeit time consuming, and are a great decision if you are trying to stick to a budget without sacrificing style or function.  In all honesty, there are so many organizational solutions at Ikea that you are almost able to double your storage space at half the cost.

We've ordered a butcher block top for the island, and are just waiting on the open shelving and pendant lights to be installed.  The island top while have an overhang on these two sides, so we can have seating here and at the bar.

Also, all of the plumbing has been finished!  That means we have a functioning pot filler, the kitchen sink, and the clawfoot tub!
Feelin' fancy with my pot filler 
Today we came in to a nice surprise: the double oven and pull-out microwave were installed!


The gas company came this week as well and added a new meter, so now *fingers crossed* we will have hot water.

So, what's left?
- baseboards
- paint touch-ups
- a fence for the doggos
- final coat on the floors
- clean up and move in!

I'm ready to get in this kitchen and bake!
