[Kitchen Clean Up] Come Together...

After the plane landed, I like everyone else on board, turned on my phone.  In my inbox, a picture message from the Husband....

Evidence that our contractor had gotten back to work - cabinet doors!!

The backordered backsplash (say that 10x fast) tiles came in on Friday. 

Here is what the kitchen looks like as of yesterday evening....

He still needs to cut the very last row of tiles to reach up to the underside of the cabinets, then he'll grout (which should be happening as I type!).  The remaining cabinet doors and drawers should hopefully be returned tomorrow.

Aside from decorative things, like potentially added some crown molding to the top cabinets, under cabinet lighting, and little things like some counter stools - we are almost done readers! 


  1. Oh wooow, your kitchen looks GORGEOUS! I love the cabinets and the backsplash!

  2. Thanks Amy! I'm so excited to go home and see the (hopefully) finished backsplash!... and you know, returning my belonging to their regularly scheduled positions...

    (im so OCD, the clutter is KILLING me!)

  3. I love it! I think white cabinets and dark countertops look so clean and neat.

  4. Your kitchen is really coming along. Looks great! I love the backsplash with the blue.


  5. 10 years - I'm so happy with the granite color. Originally we wanted a lighter tan/brown/beige-ish granite and pulled the trigger on the 'blue sapphire' last minute. So glad you think it looks clean and neat (since that's what I want my kitchen to be!) :)

    Kim/Blanca - Thanks girls!

  6. Wow. It looks great! :) I love the backsplash and the pop of the blue. Your kitchen is just awesome. I am really jealousE.
