Good morning.  Things here are beginning to slow down and are getting finished up.  Appliances were put in on Monday and I was able to use the new oven last night. We had to make some chocolate chip cookies to test it out!!  Love it!!  I have always had a wall oven so this one will take getting used to.  Our wall oven fan always ran and this one is so quiet I'm afraid I'll forget that it's on!!

We originally were not going to get a new fridge, but decided since the one we had was close to 13 years old, we would just replace it.  We feel so spoiled now with ice and water in the door.  Maybe since it's so convenient, I will give up the Mt. Dew habit..........hmmmmmm.....maybe not!  The pantry is on the right of the cupboards.  These cupboards are looking so light in the pics. They are a bit darker.
We had to take the windows out and have them sanded and stained.  Luckily it has been warm here so the insulation they put in has worked really well.  The counter top is Corian sandstone color.  I will get a more close up shot next time. They set the island in last night so those pics will be coming also.  It changed the whole look of the room. 
It's all the small finishing work now....trim, molding, knobs and handles.  A bit of electrical yet also. We are having outlets on the island and with it being a movable island, they have to put the outlet in the floor under it.  I think that's all for now. Be back soon with more.  Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Hello Melissa~
    I've enjoyed seeing the progress in your new kitchen. What a joy it will be when it is all finished. The kitchen is the heart of the home!
    I really like your choice in the stove. A few months back we had to replace our stove and I really wanted the one you picked but it will be another time. The two separate ovens will be awesome!
    Have a wonderful day.
