We are in full on crazy mode right now! We have just about 3 1/2 weeks left before we need to move in and of course we still have TONS to do. This past weekend our beautiful new kitchen cabinets went in. Originally due to our limited budget I though I was doomed to being able to only afford Home Depot cabinets. Our neighbor (who is a FABULOUS woodworker) kept urging us to check with cabinet makers before settling on anything. He was convinced due to the sad, sorry state of the economy and the lack of construction jobs going on in Southern California, that we would find someone who did beautiful cabinets at a very reasonable cost. Now of course I have a guy who I use for my design clients, but even he wasn’t affordable enough for us to use him. I ended up finding a cabinet making, father and son team that has gone above and beyond my expectations! Here is their gorgeous work….
And did you notice something else???? The ugly lava rock fireplace is gone! We are SO glad we didn’t keep it and try to reface it. Without it that area of the room in so much more open. And since that area in front of the french doors will be where we place our dining table, it makes even more sense to not have that big clunky thing there.
The marble is just now getting fabricated and should be installed at the end of next week. Also, our cabinet guys are working on the bath vanity and tiling in that room will start Monday! I cannot WAIT to show you guys that room. Its going to be so cute!!!!
