AND life goes on.............

The kitchen renovations continue.............

Just to remind you all............. this is how the kitchen looked after demo............






Here is the new paint colour 




Here are the old cabinets....... 





And here are the new cabinets - on both sides of the kitchen........... (the old kitchen did not have any cabinets on one side !!!  go figure!!) 




W tells me that there are some small tweaks that have to be made - like the shelves you can see at the end of the cabinets have been removed and taken back to the shop to have a cap put on the rough edge...... the wrong  shelves for the BIG pantry (by the fridge) were sent - so they went back to the shop and hopefully the new ones will be in next week.........there's still one cabinet door missing and the electrician has to come in and re-install the fan over the stove - and the lighting under the cabinets..

I honestly can't believe the difference the renovations have made - just the paint has made a HUGE difference.  The old paint colour (which I didn't mind) seems very bland compared to the colour that W chose.  

Honestly other than saying I wanted bamboo cabinets - W has made all the choices and worked closely with the designer.  He gets full credit for how wonderful the new kitchen looks!!  I can NOT wait to move in and start cooking - it will be such a pleasure to be "barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen"  (cheeky grin)

What a truly beautiful new colour! And the new lighting makes quite a difference, too!
