Today our pendants went up over the island. We went with hand blown onyx.
Here is a peek inside pantry #1. It looks ready to be loaded with chocolate chips, don’t you think?
The cabinet went on our dishwasher today and our handles were put on!
This is the coolest! They built us a wall and attached a screen to cover our boiler room. So clever!
Here is what it looked like before!
Tuesday, May 17 (Day 24)
Today the plumber installed our sink hardware (soap, faucet, instant hot water) and it is all up and running….literally! Our range top is also fired up now. For the hardware we went with oil based bronze to match our pendants, stools and cabinet handles!
Wednesday, May 18-no workers today so it is time to move back into the cabinets! Finally, yay! I LOVE these draw organizers. You can check them out HERE.
Filling up the shelves with lots of baking goodies!
So this is the measuring cup drawer. Normal or weird? Do you own many sets, too? You can check some out HERE!
May 20, 2016- Day 25 and pretty much the last day! A few finishing touches today including the tv going up in the kitchen above the double ovens and my old cabinets were placed in the laundry room for extra storage. You know that is lingo for more baking pan space! Tomorrow the oven goes on. My boys have requested Smookies for our first kitchen treat!

Hope you enjoyed seeing the kitchen renovation! We used a fabulous contractor for this project. A Special thanks goes to my hubby who was the behind the scenes man. He made sure everything was exactly how I wanted it to be. He put in a tireless number of hours to make it perfect including ordering, shlepping, surprising, running home during his lunches, shopping, choosing, calling, stressing, overseeing, and on and on! Stay tuned for many new recipes and Happy Baking! xoxo
Hope you’ll leave some comment love and let me know what you think!!!
