It’s done underway.  The kitchen I mean.

The scratched up countertops in that colour I don’t really care for got replaced with pretty brown/black ones.


Kind of hard to see in that photo.  Take a look at these closer up ones.



Aaah….so much nicer.

And get a load of the sink and faucet.


What an improvement over the stained, cracked, clogged and broken ones they replaced!  I can’t tell you how nice it is to do dishes and not have to worry about the stinky water that’s collecting below and to have a faucet where you can actually control the temperature of the water.  Imagine!  Life doesn’t get much better than that!

I was tempted to call this post “It’s Done!” but the kitchen isn’t really done.  It’s en route.  We still would very much like to have a custom made island to fill the big hole that is most of the room and I would very much like to have better lighting installed.  (The current lighting was obviously done with finances in mind.  It’s neither pretty nor practical.)  Another day, though, when we’ve saved another dollar or two or two thousand.  For now, I will rejoice in the steps we’ve made to having a truly great kitchen.
