Crown Moldings

In all of our homes, the cabinets never went to the ceiling.  To me, this looked a little tacky and incomplete.  With this house, our cabinets go a lot higher than our previous homes, plus we are doing crown molding.  So far, they are looking beautiful and just what I had envisioned.

Since the counters are not in yet, things are a bit slow around here.  The appliances did arrive, and from what I can see, they are going to look really good in the kitchen.  We did have a little problem with our microwave, but our contractor thinks that he can fix the problem.  If not, we have to sell it and buy a new one.  More on that later. Fingers crossed we get it worked out!

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you get to relax and enjoy with your loved ones!


Island and Floors

Our internet is back and running, for now.  Seriously we have never had this many internet problems since we moved here.  It is such a hassle.  I really don’t know how people lived without it back in the day, because my world felt like it was crumbling down on me when it didn’t work.  Dramatic, I know!

I mentioned this last week, but tons of progress is happening over here.  Besides the fact that we don’t have a kitchen sink anymore, and we only have 1/3 of a kitchen, the island is built and the floors are almost complete.  It is looking a-m-a-z-i-n-g.  We picked out our slab last week, but because of the holidays it might take a while to be ready.  I also just received a message that all of our kitchen appliances will be delivered tomorrow.  I am seriously so excited. If you only saw the dishwasher we have been using…

They currently are working on the crown moldings for the cabinets, and I am sure they are doing some other stuff because it is really loud up there. Progress, progress, progress!!


Sorry for the lack of posts. Internet problems over here! Plus life is just insane with the renovation, two demanding children and the holidays. Oh my!

The kitchen is really really coming together. I couldn’t be more happy with it so far. They have installed some of the cabinets and they look beautiful. David wanted to go with a less expensive cabinet since we don’t think we will be in this house forever, but our contractor advised us against that. Instead of completely custom cabs, we went with cabinets that weren’t the cheapest but weren’t the most expensive either. Another thing our contractor highly recommended was that they are built in the United States. Done and done.

I’ve always wanted cabinets that go to the ceiling. It’s funny because I can’t reach anything that high, but it looks pretty and can totally be used for storage right?

We went with pull outs/ instead of cabinets with doors for a lot of the kitchen. Our current kitchen has this and we never realized how incredibly functional it is.

Before this renovation started, I was mostly looking forward to a beautiful and clean kitchen. After living through this chaos, I don’t even care what it looks like anymore. I’m just excited for space, storage, and more space!!!We went and picked out our slab yesterday, we decided on backsplash, more floors are done, the island is built, and they started demolishing our current kitchen. Lots of updates to come. Until then, enjoy your weekend!
