Kitchen Sneak Peek

I thought I would share a sneak peek of our kitchen. Hopefully I can do a reveal next week. I am hoping to get just about everything done with it this weekend. Except the floor, which will be on hold for a while. This weekend hopefully we will get all the walls painted, the molding up, the new microwave for over the stove, the outlets changed, new light fixtures, and hopefully some new window treatment....but don't count on it! We always plan to get lots done, and we are lucky if we make it halfway!

I will share some before pictures:

And here is a little sneak peek of the open shelf we added. We added another cabinet on the other side of the dishwasher to create a little more counter space (and the extra storage is nice), and this was created to fill the wall above it.
I guess I should add what all we have done so far: painted the cabinets (except for 5 drawers that still need to be done), put in new counter tops, added a cabinet next to dishwasher, built and put up open shelf above new cabinet, ripped out cabinets above stove and put an open shelf to go above our new microwave when we get it, took out old backsplash and put up some new beadboard which we painted and left at the back to our open shelf. I think that's about it.

My kitchen has been in shambles since August and I am SO ready for it to be done. It took a long time to end up coming to the decision to paint the cabinets, but it's a long story and Mason is being squirmy on my lap and making it quite difficult to type, so I will leave that for another day....Time to feed the little one...
