The kitchen is finally finished. The color scheme is much better than the old kitchen and I have to admit that kneading bread on the new stone counter is so nice. Even though we kept the layout similar the new cabinets have a lot more storage space, due in large part to the pantry design and that the cabinets go to the ceiling now.
The last holdout was a stainless steel back splash to go up behind the stove and vent. The kitchen had been fairly done except that for the last week. The whole job took 78 days but we were only without a functioning kitchen for 43 days. I classify functioning as a working stove, sink and refrigerator all in the same room.
I have spent enough time ranting about what has gone wrong so here are some more photos.
We never used that spice rack for spices, but Katherine really likes roosters and this seemed like a good way to organize the keys. Oh check out the new light switches. Pretty nice. New plugs as well.
For anyone who wants to compare before and after go here.
