Hey everyone....I'll try to keep this short and sweet for you.
So, what's happened in the Austin/Langlois household this week?
1. Upper wall was cut open so that blown-in insulation could be put in the roof above the kitchen which then was re-drywalled and mudded.
2. The walls received their first coat of Benjamin Moore Gray Mist paint. However, there was a mishap on the colour number and the code was wrong so the colour is a bit off. I thought it was looking a bit builders grade bland (with no gray tone to it) and Mark (our PM) thought the same thing so he investigated it and sure enough....we need to get new paint. Whew.....I was glad to hear it because I couldn't imagine between the designer and I that we picked such a non-colour. Although, trust me....the gray we chose is very light.
3. Cabinets were delivered!!!!!!! Oh. My. God. I am in LOVE. Check it out everyone!
This was just the first delivery. They had to make 2 trips to bring all the cabinets. Paisley's looking at the maze and thinking "What the.....?"
Can you see a peek of the green cabinet colour that will be my centre island?
This photo below includes the second load of cabinets. The guys bringing them in were asking where they are all going cuz my kitchen just does not look big enough for all of these.
Installation starts next week. I'll be in Toronto for most of so I'll be coming home to fully installed cabinets (fingers crossed).
Our messy garage.....all the white wrapped items you see here more cabinet pieces....glass cabinet doors, drawers and door fronts and shelving.
Oh here's one of my fav's. This will be an end piece on the island which I will use to display my Le Creuset cast iron pots.
Last but not least...we've been getting some nice weather and I am loving tending to all my flowers. However, I have managed to kill 2 Basil and a Rosemary plant so far. I have no luck with herbs.
I'm so glad so many of you enjoy these renovation updates becuase I love sharing them. Have a WONDERFUL weekend everyone!
