Kitchen Progress!

On Tuesday, a truck came rolling up our driveway and I was as excited as a kid at Christmas time.

 When they started unloading the boxes, we had 34 packages in total!

We unloaded them in the foyer, the kitchen and the dining room.
On Tuesday evening, I matched all of the numbers on the boxes with the paperwork, then the plan.  Then I wrote on each box where it was to be located in the kitchen.
  I had to open a couple of boxes right away.  
Unfortunately, the upper kitchen cabinets were supposed to have white sides.  They will show.  But Lowe's was very understanding and are going to re-order my upper cabinets.  I just hope I don't have to wait 6-8 weeks for them. (sigh)
There were a couple of glitches with installation, but we got it figured out.  

So far so good.
You saw my sink a few posts back.  I ordered it from NBI drainboards, a company in Florida.  I LOVE IT!  And it fit right on top of the cabinet, with a minor modification to the cabinet support.
 I cannot tell you how excited I am to get this kitchen finished!
 Dave and Robert unearthed the shop top that Dave bought at a school auction years ago.  It's VERY heavy.  And of course, it's going to need some refinishing....but it's going to fit and I think I'm going
 to love it!
 I had them flip the tops over to the other side so I could pick which side I like best.  I say "flip" like it was easy.  It...was...not...easy.  These are H.E.A.V.Y. I tell you!
We bought these off of a friend of mine, Leslie, a few months back. 
 Dave sanded and white washed them.
 And hung them in this kitchen nook.
Did I say I can... not... wait.....

 I love watching everything come together as planned....
