Kitchen: The Big Reveal

We are finished!   Over the weekend we completed our final details - adding crown molding, sealing the grout, retouching my paint job, putting up curtains and unpacking boxes.  It feels amazing to finally have a working kitchen again after more than a full month of being kitchen-less.  The hardest part of all of this was not having a working kitchen for a month.  Making coffee on the radiator in the dining room, cutting up fruit on the coffee table, doing dishes in the basement, eating so much frozen veggie lasagna (I made it ahead of time) that I might never want it again...

In the end it was so worth it.  We love our new kitchen, down to the last new detail.  The warmth of the butcher block against the creamy white cabinets with the satin nickle hardware.  The white tile backsplash and the stainless sink and tall faucet.  Everything feels so fresh and clean.  I love how my fun kitchen accessories pop against all the neutrals.

Here's a little reminder of what it was before (stay tuned tomorrow for a full before and after):

And here's what it looks like now:
