My husband took this picture, some things
were already moved around...ignore the decor!
I took the rest of these this morning. It is dark in my house! My camera was flashing low light, so they aren't the best photos. There will soon be beadboard on back of the peninsula. We may carry the beadboard around to the end as well. We aren't sure we will be able to do so because of the cabinet edge.
The granite company is coming later this morning to make the template for the countertop. I can't wait. I've picked a color that I never expected. It isn't at all what I went in looking for. I hope I didn't make a mistake! The pulls on the cabinets will be changed to stainless. Of course we changed them from brass just about 3 years ago. Nothing like buying 33 pulls twice! We are also going to tile the backsplash when my dad gets here in May. For now, a fresh coat of paint will be done through the kitchen, dining and living areas. It is all one large space at our house, once you start painting...there is no stopping! I will not be able to use my kitchen for 2 weeks. The sink, disposal and dishwasher aren't able to be used. Won't this be fun? Stay tuned for updates.
Saturday we drove the 75 miles to visit my in-laws at the nursing home. They hadn't been back to visit their home in the month they have been gone from it. We told them we would pick up food and take them home for a "picnic". What we didn't know was that my sister-in-law had decided to start going through the house, getting rid of things and preparing it for selling. So, it was a bit of a shock to my in-laws to see things in such a mess. There were tears and sad moments as my mother-in-law walked around touching things and saying that over 60 years of her life were in that house. We came home with an antique spool cabinet that has always been in their home. It will now live at our house. I'm not sure where yet. It is a funny thing to have in my house, since I can barely sew a button on something!
I tried taking a picture with the flash so you could see the colors.
This is the top of the cabinet.
