4 solid months...

We're pretty much done.  It's officially 16 weeks gone tomorrow but I think by the end of the week, it'll be finished.  Maybe a tiny touch up here or there but besides that, all done.  I finally moved everything back into the kitchen this weekend.  I spent the whole weekend washing things and trying to figure out where to put everything.  I can really fill things up quickly.  I still have a little open space and I'm sure I'll rearrange things as I go along.  I'm still missing a few cabinet doors but they are coming on Thursday.  Here's what it looks like now:

The backsplash was installed on Friday and grouted today.  It looks great.  I'm really happy with it.

The electrician must have been here too and all of my dimmer switches were installed and everything looks done.

It's been a really long 4 months but I couldn't be happier with the results.  It's such a pleasure to cook in a kitchen that has space.  I love it so far.

We still have a lot to do.  We haven't put the kitchen table back together and I have to decide whether to repair one chair or paint 4 chairs black.  I'm also waiting on the counter stools which are supposed to be here this week.  We need some rugs and some family room furniture but I need to be conscious of budget constraints.  It'll all come together someday soon.
