How Rude of Us…

August 2nd, 2009

Mr. vB and I have already delved into another house project and we are still leaving you guys high and dry on the photos of the new bathroom.  We are not doing it on purpose- I promise.  I am just waiting for a piece of artwork to be framed before we start the photo shoot.  It should be done this week…and then ready to hang!

So while we are waiting, Mr. vB and I thought we would get started with another “little” project- our kitchen!

Months and months ago, Mr. vB started to hand make new cabinet fronts for all 32 cabinets in our kitchen.  Only 6 have actually made it onto their hinges.  I have also been pushing to get a new stainless steel hood to go over the stove.  I’m not sure what was in Mr. vB’s coffee this morning, but when I showed him a few sketches I had done of what I envisioned our “new” kitchen to look like, he was off and running.  I took some great photos of the demo that we did.  There are a ton, so I am going to upload all the still shots and make them into a little movie.  Watch for that later this week.

But for now I will leave you with this..

Our Kitchen this morning at 11am


And at quitting time…


Any guesses on what we are going to do??

PS.  I have the bestest husband in the entire world.  He worked his butt off today and I appreciated every minute of it.  It’s not every day you wake up and say, “let’s renovate our kitchen today.”  He is a very talented man and he continues to surprise me with how HANDY he really can be!

    Looks interesting…can’t wait to see what you’re planning. Open shelving on top? We had those same laminate cabinets in our bathrooms when we lived in VA…haha!

    I Love your blog! Found it through young house and you have lots of great ideas and we have very similiar taste! I have this same rug from Target and love it! I also have bedroom curtains I made from same fabric you used in your bathroom re-do! Neat!

    Hey! Glad to hear that great minds think alike!!
    I posted some sneak peak photos of the guest room in the same post with the master bedroom paneling, but that is all for now. I need to finish up a few more things before I do the big reveal!
    Keep checking back- it won’t be too long!
