the kitchen chronicles – Part 7

Yup – I’m still working …
Alright.  Time for another update.  It really feels like forever since I’ve started this project, but working full time while renovating does not make for a quick makeover.
So here is the work in progress. The cupboard doors are going up, the counter has arrived and the new faucet and kitchen sink has been installed.  It’s really starting to shape up.
Here is a quick comparison -  The drawers on the left are the old plywood version and the cupboard doors on the right are the new improved version. The kick plate still has to be installed as well as the backsplash and light valance.

It’s really hard to make something look so pretty when the wall behind is so ugly !

  1. Oh, it's looking good! Your going to love it so much, the countertop is lovely! Cindy

  2. Nice nice counter top! I understand about how slow things seem to go while working full-time. I was just speaking about that with a friend today. If you think about it, YOU really have accomplished a lot!!!

  3. I have those tall taps and can't count the number of times I've been thankful I bought those! Mine are also the burnished bronze and they are so cool!

  4. the cabinet doors look great up. I also like the faucet you chose for your sink. Looks great.
    Wow, didn't realize you work full time. I think you have gotten tons done for someone with a full schedule already.
    the blueberry muffings look yummy.

  5. Everything is coming together - slow but sure wins the race. Can't wait to see the backsplash - loving it all so far.

  6. i love seeing this transformation - thanks for sharing!

  7. Wow Lisa! It is really coming along!! I am impressed!! I love how the cabinet doors turned out! Gosh, I wish my husband would let me paint our cabinets!

    It looks awesome!


  8. It's looking gorgeous! Very rarely does something as big as your project happen in as little time as I think it should, but eventually it gets there. Great job!

  9. Me oh my, your kitchen is going to be gorgeous! So excited for you! I love your kitchen scale too. I'm on the hunt for one.

  10. I'm enjoying the transformation of your kitchen. We have so been there...hang in there, the best is yet to come!


  11. Your counter tops are beautiful. I just love them! I am starting a Favorite Things Friday Party the 19th. I would love you to come join in if you are interested!

  12. Please link me to the place where you got your drawer pulls on the black cabinets. I just found your blog and plan to spend hours looking at all your kitchen posts... but wanted to quick email and get that info. We're needing to order pulls asap. And I LOVE yours!

  13. Looooove it black too!! The granite is stunning and together? Perfection!
