The Home Depot Date...

Tuesday night this week we decided we needed to head to Home Depot to get some paint ideas and hopefully pick out our flooring. We were looking at all the paint colors first and oh my goodness it was overwhelming!! It is so hard to match a great color with both the cabinet and the countertop! Plus we had to think about matching flooring too:) Well at about ten minuets to 9 we finally decided on the PERFECT tile that we were both excited about! I can't believe we found something that looked great with both the countertop and the cabinet and it was in our price range! You gotta love the Home Depot Date Night!!

(This is the flooring) They will be 12x12 tiles...

This is a picture of our cabinets from the manufacturer

online so you can see the real color.

This is our countertop!

New Pictures!!

We have had quite the week! Almost all the cabinets are in!!! YAY! The kitchen looks beautiful so far, the guys did a great job:) Not they that they wouldn't but doing all the work ourselves I am very impressed! There is a heating vent above the range that needs to be moved to the floor/underneath one of the cabinets and then the rest of the cabinets can go in around the range. We also have to purchase an above the range microwave to install up there. The next step after that is flooring, then painting! So here is the deal family and friends Dan and I really need your opinions on colors and what type of flooring to go with. We have gone back and forth with doing laminate and tile. We need opinions!! Also paint color suggestions would be awesome too! I wanted to mention that anybody can leave a comment on this blog you don't have to be a subscriber or anything so feel free:) Just click on the comment link on the bottom, type in your message, then say you are an anonymous user and it should post to the blog.

New Cabinets!!

This past Saturday we had our family and friends come over to help us out with more demo and change over of the previous cabinets to some of the new cabinets. We are beginning to see some progress and everything looks amazing!!! I am truly grateful for the talent and hard work that everyone put in. I think it is so cool to have people in the family and have friends that know so much about plumbing and electric. Thank you to all of you who were here, everything looks soooo good so far and I can't wait till it is finished!! I love you all!
