So in case you didn't catch it earlier - the kitchen remodel will officially commence on
Which I think is a pretty great day to start. A nice, fresh monday, right after Halloween and of course my dear friend Kara's birthday. It seems fitting too since Kara is a star in the kitchen and will help me inaugurate the kitchen when it is finished. She also accompanied me on many an Ikea trip for the planning stages of the kitchen.
So this weekend Bran and I will be busy picking up the last of the items we need. Like all of them. We have the tile ordered and it is in the warehouse so we need to pick that up. The cabinets have been designed and are ready to order but apparently Ikea knows how to provide so they are ready same day so we will pick those up as well. And then there is the small task of going to the stone yard and picking out the granite!! I am beyond ecstatic to pick out the granite. I will definitely be bringing the camera along and posting all about the yummy slabs! Oh and last but not least we just got the most amazing news EVER. We are getting a gas stovetop. This home is purely an electrical home - no gas whatsoever.....the previous owners felt that it was safer to convert to electric everything. And Nicor told us that it would be no problem (and FREE) to convert back to gas. So we are appliance hunting this weekend too.
There is much to do between now and November 1st but I will not be a stranger during it - hopefully. And you can bet your little bottom you will be getting full updates through the messy tear-down to the full finished project. So stay tuned. I promise pictures - lots and lots of picture - because what good is a blog without pictures?! So to appease your need here are just few random ones.
Granite contender - Bianca Romano
I love the open shelf concept. Am I daring enough to tackle it?
Oh the cookbooks and mugs. I wish I was.
Oh but these are similar to the cabinets we chose and we are doing the white subway backsplash.
Granite contender #2 - Bianco Antico
oh second thoughts now - I really like this tile for the backsplash?!
I am using yellow to make the white, grey, and slightly black kitchen pop so I really want to make these for the windows......I love this fabric with the grey scalloped edging.
Thanks for visiting!!
