Progress Sneak Peek {Kitchen Renovation}

It's been quite the summer in our abode from a renovation standpoint.  It's been nearly two months since we have lived without a kitchen (and any common living areas for that matter).  The finish line is within sight, yet still a ways away.  There are a gazillion details that need to come together before everything is done!

Here's a progress peek of our new kitchen...

Kindly excuse the blurry cell phone photos.

This is where it started...

Kitchen Before Photos

Among the many decisions made during the design/planning phase, we chose a white finish for the perimeter cabinets and a dark espresso finish for the island.  The island is actually more of a black with some dark brown wood tones showing through.  The photos below depict the true color better.

I am so happy with the carpentry detail of the cabinets.  The drawers and doors are slowly going in, and then chunky molding will be installed (after the new hardwood floors go in) to finish off the base of the island and certain perimeter cabinets.  I'll dish on all the specific design details when I reveal the finished kitchen.

Crown molding has already been installed...

... and they really elevate the look of the upper cabinets and overall kitchen!

Unfortunately, we did hit a snag with the countertops.  The stone we selected is backlogged about six weeks.  Unless we choose another option, the backsplash installation will also be delayed since backsplashes go in after countertops.  Go with a Plan B, or stick with Plan A?!  Decisions, decisions... so many of them!
