First, we put the doors on the cabinets:
|(It's like a new kitchen!)|
|(I know... after all that deliberating, I went with standard brushed silver knobs. I thought they'd look good with the appliances)|
|(don't worry, I have extra knobs)|
|(it will soon be better organized, but it's so great to just have everything put away!)|
For now, though, we're so satisfied with our beautiful and functioning kitchen - that we did ourselves! Tonight we ate a delicious dinner of wild rice with yellow curry, chicken, peas and carrots, and my family's yum-tastic spinach croquettes (which turned out great, Mom), and I have a banana bread in the oven as I type this. It feels good.
P.S., I have to give a shout-out to my dear friend Erin who's finally revived her side-business and blog, Hugs & Cookies. These cookies are outstanding and beautiful and come highly recommended, trust me. And I'm excited to have her updates again, so please don't hesitate to order them (they travel well.)!
