Kitchen decisions made! Finally!

The kitchen has been one long stretch. First cabinet choices, but that one was fairly easy as spotted what I loved right away. Appliances tricky, alot out there and you have to become a pro in a short timeframe. The hardwood floor was chosen and bought 2 years ago being stored in my basement all this time. Paint colour has been my biggest hurdle. I like taupes but they have to be the right undertone. I make it hard on me simply because I see more than what others may. Let's just say, when you start correcting the paint gal at the store, you're in DEEP. It's hard to be me at times.

But it's working!

Cabinets - check!
Countertops - check!
Island size - confirming and still tweeking to suit
Appliances - I have choices to work with but I haven't purchased yet, will wait closer to fall when the kitchen would be installed. I have a wonderful contact that will notify me when my favs go on sale.

Cody and I will be camping all next week so I'm going to work hard and get that office painted before we leave!

Vic showed up last night to check on things. I've slowed the progress down some due to my stall in painting. So it was nice to see Vic.

And tonite Pete and Erna stopped in. Then they suggested I tour their place so Cody and I jumped in the truck (as Cody exclaims, 'But mom, it's bedtime!' Since when did he care so much?!?) It was alot of fun to see how they set up their kitchen and gave me a few more ideas to mull over.

I have just made some of the best friends over the last couple of months. It doesn't get much better than this.

Ok, well, maybe ABIT better once the kitchen is beautiful and complete! I have soooo much to look forward to! And be thankful for!
