Kitchen Reno: weeks 9-10

We’re back in action folks! Lots to share and as you can see- it’s almost coming to an end….minus the painting. Anyways- the photos will speak for themselves! Enjoy!!

Here’s Jim (our contractor) installing the framing for the soffit! Yay soffit!!!

hmmm…. I don’t think he wanted to be “documented”..oh well…”smile Carlos”!

Soffit, lights, and sheet rock: check.

Next up: Drywall.

Voila! we have FLAT walls!!! ….(and as you can see “baby” is still in the corner…waiting to be sold).

Trim, panels, and ceiling!!!! Originally we were going to add those cool tin ceiling tiles…but to keep things simple and my husband sane, we went with the cedar planks. The kitchen smells like a hamster cage but I think it looks pretty cool! :)

Notice the “glow” effect in the soffit! We had Jim install rope lighting on a dimmer…inspired by my parents’ kitchen! Thanks Mom&Dad! ;) Also big thanks to my cuz Kevin for all the pre-wiring!!

So that’s all for now! Oh and if you were wondering…we finally found “baby” a home!  :D
