Finishing touches #kitchenrenovation

Our general contractor came back from his vacation and finished up a few things.  One of them being the dishwasher panel.  We got the incorrect sized panel in the original cabinet order and it takes about a three week wait to get the corrected cabinet so needless to say we had one naked dishwasher....poor thing!  But it's naked no more thanks to a fancy new panel and pull.  I love how it blends seamlessly with the other cabinets.  And of course I love the chance to use the pull again.
The cabinet baseboards were installed.  Just that little detail makes the cabinets look more complete.
And I duck taped where our open shelves will go on either side of the window.  They'll be about 12" deep with wooden corbels holding them up.  The top shelf is higher up but this is where I'll put less used items like serving platters and pitchers.  Looking to the right of the window.
To the left of the window.

And a full on shot.  And yes those are dishes and glasses on our counters.  They're there for now until we get those bad boys installed. 

Still lots of to do's that is now on our shoulders.  Here's a project breakdown to keep us accountable:

  • Make open shelves
  • Paint open shelves
  • Hang open shelves
  • Paint crown moulding
  • Paint back of peninsula
  • Hang roman shade
  • Finish under the upper cabinet of the coffee station
  • Paint trim
  • Second coat of paint on chimney
  • Touch up wall
Till the next time!
