Kitchen redo ~ Day 8

At day 8 ~ the thrill has come ,gone & now come back again! We are really tired of take out food but the end really does seem close at hand! The counter top folk's came out to measure for the silestone counter top. They put a special tape all over the wall's and counters and take pictures of it. I can't believe this will ensure a perfect fitting counter ~ we'll see in 2 weeks when they deliver it. I am SO excited about my pantry. It is small but so sweet with its bead board walls. Another lesson to share ~ ask for the measurements of the plate rack if you include one in your new cabinets! The spindles on ours were so far apart that the only thing that would fit was maybe a turkey platter! My contractor Scott is fixing it for me ~ a time consuming job! I picked pine floors that we will stain a walnut color to ground the room. I'm thinking of a subway tile for the stove area. I can't use a color tile because I redecorate so often ~ I will go nut's having to commit to a color! I do miss my life pre~redo! I feel I have lost touch with my blogging ~stitiching world but I am ever so grateful that I am able to do this! Well time to fall into bed!

Terri, Your kitchen is going to be wonderful. It is fun to see a redo in process. I know what you guys are going through. We cooked a lot on the grill.Love the white cabinets you chose. Although they require a little more cleaning, I never tire of the white. The kitchen always looks clean, even with a sink of dishes. enjoy!!!!
