Woohoo!!!

Well, we signed the paperwork on our new kitchen today and it's on it's way to the cabinetmaker!!! So excited!!! :)

Here is the style of cabinet we picked out. I'm not sure if that's the exact color, but it is close. I think we also picked out a glaze to go over top, sort of like a chocolate color.


He is also custom building us a cabinet to fit into an old set of small steps that we have in here too. The doors will match the rest of the cabinets too.

We also decided on a quartz countertop over Corian. I'm thinking something like this.


We need to pick out the exact countertop color yet as well as the ceramic tile floor. They will all be neutral.

I'm hoping to paint the walls a nice lighter rusty orange color. We'll also be getting a new dishwasher and over the stove microwave.

The new windows for the kitchen were being ordered today. We will be getting replacement windows in the whole house when spring rolls around. We want to make sure there aren't any unexpected expenses that arise with the kitchen, plus winter is not a good time for getting new windows!

So, we are SO excited!!! I can't wait to pick out the rest of the colors and go shopping for a new light fixtures, faucets and handles! Woohoo!!!

So Jealous!!! I have a great home, but it has a very outdated 80's kitchen. I long for the day when we will be giving it a face lift...but until then, I will just enjoy gathering great ideas. Can't wait to see how everything turns out for your kitchen!

Sorry, I haven't visited in awhile, I am catching up!!! Those are very similar to my cabinets. We have maple with a glaze on them. Love them. Love that countertop, we went cheap on ours, wish we wouldn't have, but it is okay for now! Had to cut corners, KWIM? =)

How exciting!!!
