Sweet, sweet cabinetry...

I truly, truly never thought I'd see the day. And I'm honestly not being overdramatic when I say that. The base cabinets were all placed today. Tomorrow they'll be fastened and all that other good stuff. On Monday, the granite guys come to template for the countertops and the window sill, and then the cabinet guy will come back and install the wall cabinets. We had a blast tonight checking them out after the cabinet guy had them placed. We honestly couldn't even remember what the hell kind of cabinets we ended up ordering. We were like, "Oh, check it out! There are pull-outs in this one!" And "Look at this cute little drawer that will be perfect for spatulas!" LOL! And "Hmmm... what are we going to do with two tall, narrow cookie sheet cabinets?" LOL!


Here's a picture of the front of the island. The center cabinet that bumps out a bit is where the gas stovetop will be. Seating will be along the back and on the right-hand side of the island.



Here's the corner of the room. The two cutouts are for the built in oven and the microwave. The thing I'm most excited about in this corner is the built-in wine rack which isn't installed yet, but will be on the wall right next to the oven/microwave cabinet.



Here's the long wall of cabinets. Right under the window in the cabinet that's bumped out is where the sink will be. The space right next to that is where the dishwasher goes. (Oh my glorious, glorious dishwasher... LOL!) You can't really see it in this picture, but that really tall cabinet at the far end is a pantry cabinet. The refrigerator will go between that and the smaller cabinet on the floor.


And here's a view from the back door, where you come in into the mudroom. Tomorrow, the island will be "wrapped" with white beadboard around the sides and back. That room you see in the back there, which is currently our temporary kitchen, will be our eating area with a table. The tile will continue through right into there.
