|Oh kitchen, how I cannot wait to walk through your doorway again.|
The new doorway studs into the living room have been closed up, and the walls and ceiling have gotten a coat of primer. Things are moving in the right direction!!
|Is heaven on the other side of the plastic? |
That glowing blu orb sure looks like it.
|The outlets are finally at even heights!|
I can sleep easy tonight.
|My window wall into the dining room has been temporarily closed up to help tame the dust.|
What's taped up there, you ask?
Only my cabinet layout...it's finally time!!
The floors are also going in- I bought salvaged hardwood from the Architectural Salvage Warehouse of Detroit - hooray for less environmental waste! Everyone is jumping on the "salvaged goods" bandwagon - check out this great article from the Huffington Post to see what some of the incredibly talented people in Detroit are doing with salvaged materials from the city!!
|Guitars from Detroit wood? Check.|
|It's been moved from the basement to the kitchen floor...baby steps!|
The appliances also were delivered this week, so now I've got my full new kitchen sitting in my garage. We unpacked the cabinets from the boxes, with only one fatality- one cabinet door was scuffed up. Lowe's has promised to deliver a new door within 5-7 business days, and the scuff won't delay installation at all- thank goodness for small favors!
|They're crying to be brought inside. |
And I'm crying for that white stove to be sold. Come on, Craigslist!!
Things are moving along! Hopefully we'll see some great progress within the next week- removing and rebuilding the guts of the kitchen is over...on to the pretty stuff!!!
