The Almost Finished Kitchen

The week is over and it's time to relax, well I can, Romney went back to work today. We decided to tackle the kitchen. We made a very unrealistic schedule for every day in hopes to finish this kitchen. To our surprise most of the things were accomplished. We are a little behind....according to the schedule but that is okay! It's ALMOST FINISHED!!



Here was a busy week!!

Day 1&2:
Romney finished the outer edge of the counter tops. He did a great job with all the corners too. He then worked on the remaining tile pieces. I guess his tile class has paid off.




Day3:
The back splash went up and finishes the look.


While the back splash was drying Romney started to paint the cabinets...nice head gear.


Day 4:
Romney does some final touches on the cabinets. Almost ready to mount them. While the cabinets are drying one last time he starts laying out the tile for the fireplace.

Day 5:
The cabinets are ready to go up!!! Romney and his childhood friend Ethan working hard...or just laughing!

Im so excited to be getting this done. All the cabinets are not up but half are. But hey I'll take it!

Annaliese just said, "what's that?" I told her it was your kitchen. She said, "Is it broken?" =) I explained that you were getting a new kitchen and putting up new cabinets and soon it would look fabulous! She said, "WOW, it sure is coming along!" =) Hee hee. Cutie!

I just wanted to let you know that if you wanted an invite to my blog, email me your address so I can give you the invite. I changed over to a private blog pretty quick and realized that i left a lot of friends out because I do not have email addresses. My email is my first and last name all lower case no spaces @ gmail.
Thanks!

I keep forgetting to tell you. Check out Flor.com because you might like what they have. Martha Stewart was promoting them for a while. I think that is how I got on the catalg mailing list. Check it out, you might like?

ROMNEY! So I was talking to a coworker about the band Bush - which led to a discussion of a guy I dated who jumped on stage at a Bush concert (Ethan) - which led to an Internet search for my favorite Yucaipa boys! Found you! Glad to see that you are doing well. Miss you guys!
