Are we in Venice???

No, but it's sure feels like it with our new granite countertops! It's called New Venican Gold and boy is it BEEE-U-TEE-FUL!! I can't wait to get it all completed. Here are a few teaser pics.

We are still working on our cabinet doors, but hopefully we'll have them finished soon! Enjoy!

Man, You Need a Facelift!

So to save some money (and because our cabinets were in really good shape) we have decided to just give our cabinets a little face lift. So for a simple update, we decided to add a little bit of lattice molding. We'll paint them and add new hardware and they should be good as new!

So here is the before:

Here are the durings:

But be patient for the afters, these little suckers take some serious time! :)

We have Monsters in our Kitchen!!

Well not really, but our new fridge/freezer set sure are big and scary, but I LOVE 'EM!

This is the before of what our poor little fridge and freezer used to look like...

And, this is the after!!! I know, I know, they are huge, but they are awesome. So, after several painful hours of measuring, remeasuring, thinking of a frame, cutting, measuring and finally putting on the last piece of molding, they are in and working! (Looks like Gracin wanted to get in the picture too :)!)

Now, it's time for the rest of the countertops, refacing the cabinet doors and a putting up tile backsplash. Stay tuned for more posts :)!

Day 2 - Kitchen Update!

So it was day 2 of the kitchen update yesterday and we're making room for the monsters (see below)!

So out with the jigsaw, circular saw, and any other kind of saw needed for cabinet demo and this section of the kitchen has gone from this:

To this:

We have to build a frame and make it look pretty, but I think once it's completed, it will look wonderful! Stay tuned for the afters :)!

A New Year calls for New Projects!

Look out 2010! Gregory and I having the project goggles on and we're ready to get started! I know it's been a while since my last post, but there will soon be more.

Unforuntately, we hit an exhaustion wall in late October and decided to put a hold on all home improvement projects until after the holidays. So since we have rested up and all the holiday mayhem has settled down, there are new projects on the horizon!

So stay tuned...
