Kitchen in Progress

This is it so far
-
The kitchen is coming along!  The floors are covered with paper,
they are a dark brown-stained concrete.
Stainless appliances will go in all the empty spaces.
There will be corbels under the range hood.
And then at last, the perfect accessory
~ a swarovski crystal chandelier over the island ~
-
I have been hunting down chandeliers in antique shops,
flea market shops (and one for the entry in an actual lighting store)
And spray painting a couple I kept from our former home.
-
I am so excited about the lighting that will be the finishing touches.
-
This coming week it will be all about interior painting.

I AM THRILLED. I feel as if I have been on this journey with you, and for that correspondence and fun, I thank you. Your companionship my friend means the world to me.

I AM ANXIOUS to see the corbels and......ta dah.....THE CHANDELIER OVER THE ISLAND! You have got to be as giddy as a kid....come on now, admit it! I KNOW YOU ARE!

Your kitchen will be the center of joy and much creativity. I have GOT to find a way to visit you for at least a DAY!!! LOVE YOU! Anita

Violet, You're now at the really exciting place. All the beautiful details. Same with painting, right? You do the important groundwork and then enjoy the "goodies" at the end.

I especially love your quote from John Eldridge about beauty. I say whenever you have a choice, pick beauty every time! Surround yourself with it. Look out the window--God has surrounded us with it too. Can NEVER have too much!

Hi Violet! Long time no chat with! Loving this new KITCHEN! You'll love those granite counters! That's on my wish list to upgrade in my home, even though it was built only 8 years ago. My sister put granite in hers a few years back and just loves it... I love the backsplash area as well! So pretty! Hugs from GA... ;) ~CC Catherine
