All is good in my life!
I will try to never speak of window trim again BUT first I have to tell you that it is now PERFECT. A new paint company was hired and their work is absolutely impeccable. In one single day two painters turned the bad spray job on the trim to pure perfection! (remember the first sprayer took 2 weeks). The trim literally shines like glass. I keep checking for my reflection in it and can't stop touching it.
I tried to get some pics of the shine but my camera wouldn't capture it but I'll show you anyway. So happy!!!!
Also this week our closet doors were delivered and a carpenter came in on Monday to fit them for hanging, build the door casing etc. The doors have since been taken to the contractors cabinet shop to be sprayed the same colour as the cabinets and trim (sorry, I know I said I wouldn't mention it again).
The inserts in the door are actually a light greeny/blue glass panel. We have this same door on our basement bedroom and we love it. Mike suggested them for the front closet. I wasn't too sure about that at first but I am SO glad I listened to him. They are going to be amazing.
I would love to put crystal door handles on these but nothing too big. Does anyone know of a decent glass door knob or have any suggestions for style of door handles/knobs? I'm not quite sure crystal will work with the greeny/blue glass panels.
And now.....LAST BUT SO NOT LEAST ~~~ our cabinet colours!!
Our contractor has their own cabinet manufacturing shop and I went there on Friday morning to view 2 sample painted doors and sign off approval of them. I am thrilled to show you these photos and I am giddy with how much I love my green island colour.
Here it is!! I did not edit or do anything to this picture as I wanted to show it to you as true to the colour as possible. The pictures don't even do justice to how breathtaking they are. LOVE!
This is Sid. He will be spraying all of my cabinets and they tell me he is incredibly detailed. Very nice guy. He's proudly showing the quality of his work.
Here's some more photos of our cabinets which are all cut and primed. It's hard to believe that everything in the following pics will actually fit in our kitchen.
These are 2 racks of cabinet doors and the smaller drawer fronts. You can see on the very right hand side doors that don't have a centre panel as they are all my glass front cabinets doors.
I'm not quite sure where these go in the kitchen but I'm told they belong to us. These could be the island.
More of ours but again not sure where these go. Maybe these are shelves for the upper cabinets??
This is my main pantry. I am so happy that it appears larger than I thought it would. There is 6 pull out drawers and there will be stationary adjustable shelves above. These will hold alot of canned goods don't ya think?
My pots and pants drawers for either side of our range. The drawer are "soft" close which is something Mike really wanted so I can't slam drawers when I'm mad now. haha.
These short bases are going on the wall that has the opening cut out to look down to the family room. They are quite low but will be topped with a drawer and then a slab of quartz. I believe it's brought up to what they all vanity height.
Here's Sid dapping the cabinet doors. He told us that he should have everything painted by next Thursday. Then they will deliver Friday and we could be looking at an install date of Monday June 28.
And last but not lease these are our baseboards. They were brought to the shop to spray rather than doing them in the house so they are done and ready to be brought back when the time comes to install.
And that's the End of Week 9 update for you. I am one happy girl. Mike and I both love the green (he's all for it, I promise, and yes ~~~ he totally gives in to my strange and quirky whims). I hope you like it too! Just imagine how fabulous that green will be up against our Walnut floors. Amazing!
