|Primer completed and chicken wire awaits the concrete....|
|Underneath all this pretty "ply board" is our subfloor!! It's level, I've got my 95" ceiling height and it's looking GOOD!|
|The while ply-board and the white walls make everything look a little larger than life, yes? But soon, very soon, we're going to have loads of color in there.|
So, that's the way things looked this morning at 8:30 when I took the last pictures and headed out to a meeting. It was all quiet on the front. No construction crew. Nothing. I returned from my meeting at exactly 10:00 and looky here!! A WINDOW!!! A Big Beautiful WINDOW!!! Gone is my boarded up hole in the wall. Amazing.
|Isn't she a beaut???|
George the Elder and I picked out some preliminary colors yesterday. I think we're both happy where we're headed, but we still need to wait for the cabinets to get a final bead on what we want to do. We really loved our "atmospheric" of kitchen-old - - and I think we've decided to go in a similar direction with kitchen-new assuming that the new-atmospheric substitute compliments the blue of the cabinets. We won't know until they're in. We're going to go with two colors in the kitchen (how bold are we?). One on the stairway walls and another less bold color on the small areas near the cabinets. Or at least that's the plan. Who knows?? But, kudos to our guy at "house of color" for using his little color matching gizmo to get really excellent matches of the colors we were looking for.
So, onward to the really exciting parts. The pretty parts. The let's really see what kitchen-new is going to look like parts. Fun, fun, fun!!
