Kitchen remodeling porn

I stayed up way too late reading Mockingjay and my back hurts so bad I am about to hypochondriacally claim I have spinal meningitis, so enjoy the pretty pictures of my kitchen remodel.

When last we saw the kitchen it looked like this:

After the cabinets were installed.

The beautiful floor-it is the color of concrete, which is what the floor underneath this is, but the new floor has the benefit of never having been  jackhammered!

Some door front action. (Note: these door fronts are discontinued because that is the kind of luck I have, so don’t like them too much, they cause great heartache-okay, as much as drawer fronts and 700 trips to IKEA can.)

This is a random picture of my daughter.

It’s all comin’ together!  I’m thinking of painting that red wall a nice cinnamon or tangerine color.  What do you think?  Keep in mind the rooms right next to that are lime green and a kind of 50’s grey-blue.  Oh, and my house is orange on the outside.

Countertops!

This is how it looks right now.  The contractors are on vacation for a week, so it will most likely be done next week.  Can’t wait for the plumbing to be hooked up!  So sick of washing the dishes in the bathroom.  For reals.

  1. Tangerine!

    Oh hey…I can finally post commetns again! Not sure what that work-related BS was about? They’ve still blocked Twitter, but at least I get my blogs! Jeez! I love your new kitchen!

  2. Thanks! So, did you not get my “vulgar” reply at all the other day? I can’t even remember why they would block it? Anyhoo, I said you could do your edits however you wanted and I would roll with it because I heart free edits. 🙂 Also, that we should go to a happy hour some time when we both have money…like October? 😉

  3. It’s looking beautiful. You must be so happy!
    (Thanks for not making me buy another book today. I know you wanted to gush about Mockingjay, but you remembered my threat. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself, as no one ever heeds mah warnings, so it’s nice to imagine…)

  4. Thanks! I am excited to get to put all my stuff away soon and get to cooking!

    I don’t think you need me to tell you to read Mockingjay! Ha! I’m not sure why people are even bothering to write reviews of it-everyone loves it and then bitches about the same three things. 🙂

  5. Eureka! I found all the blocked emails in my junk folder, and I figured out why. It was because of the word “porn”. I shit you not. Anything even remotely deemed offensive in the subject line gets the whack job. I’ve become a professional swear word misspeller. Fork, shite, etc. Apparently, they do not consider jackass a swaer word, which is awesome since I use it constantly! Personally, I’m always intrigued when I get one of those auto-blocked-email things: Wha happened? They make me curious.

    Yes, definitely drinks! I know a good dive bar downtown where we can get cheap pitchers of PBR?! It’s pretty rank, but I know a couple people. Me + dive bars = Happy dance.
