# Paint walls with Behr Ultra Aged Parchment
# Get new appliances (stove, dishwasher and refrigerator)
# Add two new electrical outlets to outside wall
# Pick up granite samples and decide on a pattern
# Pull down pantry cabinet to relocate electrical outlet that’s in the pantry
# Move upper cabinet left of the sink to align it with the sink.
# Pack up kitchen (wasn’t as bad as I thought)
# Pick out, purchase and install new pendant lighting
# New cabinets install

    Kitchen Remodel

    December 6, 2010

    We are finally going to do it. A full kitchen remodel. Cabinets are ordered. We cannot wait! I’ll post before/after photos when I have some and maybe even some during construction. Last night we pulled down the ceiling in the breakfast nook area and tonight we will be hanging new drywall. Exciting times!!

    Cabinet details: Cherry wood, recessed panels cabinets to the ceiling with crown molding. We opted to add four pull out drawers because I love those! We are going to remove the cabinet above the stove and put in a new stainless range hood to match the rest of our new appliances. I dread looking at those since there is such a huge variety but I know it will look great when it’s in. Here is a picture of similar cabinetry:

    We cannot wait to enjoy our new kitchen! Just 5-6 short weeks away!!

    Here is the undermount sink we are considering:

    We cannot wait to start enjoying our new kitchen!!!
