Okay, this is actually Remodel Tuesday. But yesterday I posted with some of my other Real Farmwives about some great Carhartt gear for the guys. (Did I mention that there is a Carhartt giveaway going on right now?)
The cabinets are here, the cabinets are here! I’m so excited… I’ve been waiting for this part for so long!
I was really nervous when there were two boxes that wouldn’t even fit in the door…
Luckily, when we opened them up they turned out to be the corner Lazy Susans. These corner cabinets are shaped funny, and when we took them out of the box the guys were able to slip them through the front door. Yay!
I was a bit overwhelmed when the delivery guys unloaded the truck… There were a lot of boxes! And there were more stacked out in the hallway… and those giant Lazy Susans in the front room… It was a bit of an obstacle course.
But it all came together beautifully. (Did I mention that I painted my kitchen blue? The color is actually called “Silverado,” and I was a bit nervous at first. I’ve decided that I like it, and the cabinets and tile have calmed the blue down a bit… And I’m not painting it again!)
The sink and dishwasher will go in the space on the left of the photo. The oven will go where the step ladder is sitting now.
This is the refrigerator nook. I am promised that when the refrigerator is in place (next week!) those overhead cabinets won’t look out of place. Here’s hoping!
And now to highlight some of the neat features… We have a cabinet to make a countertop microwave look like it was built-in.
There’s a double pull-out garbage drawer. This is going to do wonders for keeping the cats out of my trash cans.
One of the giant Lazy Susans has two rotating trays. The other has a recycling center – three garbage cans on a spinning rack, perfect for all your recycling collecting!
We got one cabinet with pull-out shelves for our larger pots and pans and whatever small appliances we think need to go in here.
I’m really looking forward to arranging my new kitchen. Anyone want to come help me unpack? Our target date is 4/18!
