Finally, the cabinets are getting installed. Against the far side is a desk, 2 file drawers, open shelves, and storage above. Above the desk are 2 cupboards with shelves and slots for all my junk mail. In the corner on the left side is a broom closet and a pantry. Notice on the front left, I have great storage for my cookie sheets and other baking pans.
Looking toward the window, you can see where my stove will go, a nice bank of drawers, the spot for a lazy Susan, and my sink cupboard. Look at all those cupboards above! And check out the attractive bridge over the window. No dishwasher yet, but soon. Since someone miscalculated, my sink cupboard is not centered exactly under the window, making the bottom cabinet jut out past the upper cabinet. The cabinet maker is going to install some rounded shelves on the upper cupboard to even out that space--no charge! Can you see all the outlets I asked for? Pretty smart, huh, Mom! Oh, yes, an appliance garage goes in the corner above the lazy Susan.And last, but not least, my 8-foot bar. I can't wait to use all this counter space--don't know how or for what, but it will be fun! The bar behind the counter is raised about 6 inches, hopefully to block out any mess (never any mess!) from the living room. Four deep drawers will store plates, bowls, and pans. I'm not sure what goes on the middle pull-out shelves. In fact, I'm not sure how I'll fill all these cupboards. More Pampered Chef parties?!
You can also see that we've painted. Corey, Audree, Julie, and I painted last weekend. I loved the green and tan combination from before, so I kept the same color scheme--tan on living room and dining room walls and light sage green all around the kitchen. Unfortunately, the flooring store did not order my floor, so Wayne (contractor) will install that this weekend. Corey is the floor-laying expert, but he'll be in Vernal for Labor Day. Hopefully, the following weekend, I'll have pictures of the completely finished kitchen. Keep your fngers crossed!
