The cabinets are in! Hooray. You can also see the floors a bit better in this shot. I'm really happy with the dark gray.
A few more to-do left on the list. Aside from the painting, a little finishing work and the countertops, we have to figure out exactly where those open shelves are going. Obviously they will be on the left side of the galley but I'm waiting to see how it looks with the sink and faucet installed before I decide on placement.
Speaking of countertops...
Huzzah. After my tour of (what seemed like) every marble yard in the tristate area, we have our slab of marble. Naturally we have to wait a few more weeks to get that templated (this is the longest short project ever!) but the home stretch is in sight.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the paint colors. Dusty Miller seemed to be the winner but since we are repainting the living room darker, I wanted to keep the kitchen lighter. Mint is still haunting my mind but Mr. Limestone said it simply enough when he told me "you are never going to be happy with a bright mint kitchen". I couldn't really argue with that logic so instead I'm going with a shade that is a cross between the dusty miller and the soft mint: Glidden's Jade Frost. (Look how fabulous it looks in Centsational Girl's home).
Finally I somehow completely forgot I had to get cabinet knobs or pulls so off I go to find some. Any suggestions?
