Kitchen Remodel Update: The Cabinets Arrived!

Kitchen Remodel Update: The Cabinets Arrived!

Thank you all for your excitement over my kitchen design board, you make sharing this project so much fun. As you can imagine, I was SO thrilled to see the cabinets and the sink finally brought in! This is just a quick peek so you’ll know our cabinets arrived, but rest assured, you’ll get to see the finished product in the big reveal.

Also, remember that our plan is for the walls and ceiling to be painted white wood (even though what you see here currently is blue plaster walls and the unfinished wood ceiling).

Yes, this is us being our ridiculous selves. We can’t help it. As soon as the contractor left for the day, Courtney and I brought in dish towels and accessories and held up hardware and then took pictures of everything because WE COULD! Hahahah. Random, I know. I found the gray striped towels from Trader Joe’s, by the way, and the buffalo checks are from here. The cute wood measuring spoons are from Polder’s Old World Market.

We discovered our sink corners had cracked in the box during shipping, so it didn’t get fully installed. That was a disappointment, but the contractor went ahead and used the damaged sink to build the frame for it in the cabinet so at least we got to visualize how awesome it will be! We taped up the cracks in the porcelain since my contractor cut his hand on it. Now we are waiting for a replacement (for the sink, not his hand…his hand is still intact, thank goodness). Friday a template will be made for our countertops and our hardware will be installed. The countertops will be installed in about a week!

I’ve been so happy with how every detail came together this week. I always worry that a decision is going to be wrong, or something won’t look quite as good as I imagined it would in my mind. But so far this room feels just as light, efficient and beautiful as I hoped it would and maybe even better. Big sigh of relief.

If you’ve remodeled or built a house, tell me you’ve styled your kitchen before it was finished, too :-D.
