More Kitchen Progress (Photos!)

Here are the photos I promised :) We are getting there, friends, we are getting there. Sam and I hope to finish up the last bank of cabinets this Sunday night!!! Can I hear a WOO-HOO?

The yellow countertops stand out now more than ever, but I'll just have to deal with that. Honestly, they aren't as vivid as they appear in the photos. Don't get me wrong, they're yellow. But, it's more of a straw/maize color than a bright yellow. We're still tossing around countertop ideas, but probably won't get to them for 1-2 more years. We have a few little jobs in here to take care of this fall and winter (adding bamboo blinds, a light over the sink, organizing type things). The next big kitchen project,though, is slated for Spring 2010 - we're busting out that awful garden window and expanding the opening for a larger, more traditional replacement :) Yay for more natural light!!!

Hope you all like what we've done so far. I'm pleased with how it's coming along on such a major budget. We're not finished, so I can't really call these Before and After pics. Maybe we'll call them Before and During pics. Here they are!

Eat-in Area October 1, 2009

The light is new from (sold out) and the curtains are Ritva from IKEA. Curtain rods from Target. Wall color is Sherwin William's "Balanced Beige" and the cabinets are SW "Panda White". The new hinges are oil-rubbed bronze in stock at Home Depot. Bin pulls to come next month!!! I had the tablecloth already - I think (I bought it at Kohls about 4 years ago). I switched out the old chairs for some others I already had, too.

P.S. We changed the flourescent bulbs from "Kitchen & Bath" to "Office" lights. It's a much whiter light now - more like natural light, I think. Definitely an improvement to hold us over until the ceiling can get raised in that part of the kitchen and new (not flourescent!) light fixtures can go in.

Thanks for looking!

What a difference! The fresh white cabinets look awesome and we love the wall color too! Plus that gorgeous chandelier is the icing on the cake. Fab job Jacci!

the doors on your cabinets look so pretty painted! the detail actually looks good instead of dated!
you guys are doing some major work and it's NOT easy with little ones around:)
Happy remodeling!
