Sneak peeks of "sunny and bright" while I finish this darn thing!

I have a few sneak peek photos for those of you who have been bugging me to hurry up.  (You know who you are. You also know I love you.) I'm not done yet, but it's coming along!  (Slight snag with the glass fronted cabinets, but I should have them back from the millworkers mid week next week. (****Update: Cabinet doors just got finished days early!!  Installing them tonight!****) I was not given very good information by the glass shop, unfortunately, and had to go to the pros.  It happens. and it's called "construction.")
While I wait for the doors that go with this cabinet, I covered pieces of foam core board (that I'd cut to size) with a golden paisley fabric and pressed them against the back of each shelf.  I can't believe how much I adore it.  I just keep staring at this cabinet!  We were originally going to yank the whole thing down and go with open shelves... but then I got to watching my hoodlums in the kitchen and I saw a vision of every plate crashing down around their ankles as they reached up to the shelf and walked along the counter to get to the cups.  Cabinet stays.

Nurse Nicki and deliberated on this small bar from Ikea and where it should go.  Adrain didn't think it should go at the end of the island, but in the end it was two girls against one measly ol' man, so we won and I hung it.  (I think Adrain likes it now that he sees it.)
I know it's not much, but it's all I've got done so far.  I'm working on the doors now that drawers are in!  Stay tuned.  (grin.)


Happy Weekend!

  5. sneak peeks look great. The glass front cabinets are going to be so nice. Really opens up the kitchen and you picked the kind of glass I just love. If i remember you correctly it's the kind with the bubbles.
