Hello again, Friends! We just finished up week 6 of the kitchen renovation and things are starting to come together. There is light at the end of the tunnel! This week has been all about painting! What a difference it has made. I LOVE the cabinet color. We decided on Sherwin Williams Tidewater for the base cabinet color. The uppers are a Benjamin Moore Cloud White. We aren't done yet, the uppers in the photos just have primer and 1 coat. I am really loving the blue, it is so pretty! Our goal was to lighten up the space and man, this has definitely done the trick!
On a side note, we had a pretty exciting morning here at the house. Hubs is putting in a whole house water filtration system. The water in our little town is pretty awful. It's typically yellow or brown, often smells like sulfur and leaves a white scale on everything. It pretty much sucks trying to keep anything clean that is in contact with water. The water dispenser on our fridge, the sink and faucet in the old kitchen, etc. So we found a whole home system by Whirlpool that sounds promising and it's actually very affordable. We are starting out with just a filter, but know we may need to add a softener. I'll do a follow up post sometime after we've used it for a while and let you know how it's working out.
Anyway, back to why it was so exciting. I was sitting here putting my blog post together and he comes running through the house with a panicked look on his face, "I #%$@* UP!!!" He turned the water off in the house, but didn't turn it off out at the main by the street. When he cut through the main line he created a water explosion in the garage, haha! It was like Niagara Falls out there. He ran out to the street to turn off the water, but his truck was parked on top of the water meter, so he ran back inside to grab his keys, so he could move the truck. It was quite the calamity. Thank God we took all of the furniture out of the garage last weekend or it would have been a major disaster. So, I spent some good quality time with the shop vac this morning. :-) As I've said about a million times before, it wouldn't be a project without us messing something up. You know, he actually said, "That was kind of fun!" What?? Love this guy!
Next week, I will be back with pictures of the cabinetry, hopefully all finished up. Then we'll just have the back splash left and I can do the big reveal!! Have a great week, everyone!
