cabinet boxes

Today’s the day! It’s kitchen cabinet delivery day! Yep, almost a year after moving into the house, this day has finally arrived. Even though they aren’t going to be installed until the first week of December, we’re still super excited about seeing the end in sight. Oh happy day!

Yep, now that song is going to be in your head all day… you’re welcome.

Today, most kitchens are filled with cranberry sauce, stuffing, pies and a big turkey. Ours, well… it’s empty. But that’s okay with us because we’re already looking forward to and making plans for next Thanksgiving. Last night, we prepped the space by laying down plastic to protect the floors…

We moved all of the kitchen boxes and temporary countersΒ tables to the dining room…

It looks like a mess, but it’s an exciting mess!

UPDATE The KraftMaid delivery guys just left…

… and our kitchen is now FULL of boxes and boxes – all the way up to the ceiling:

We asked that they place them a few feet from the walls because my dad (who is a licensed electrician) is going to be moving a few of the outlets for us over the next few days.

We’re leaving the boxes untouched until the installers arrive in a few weeks but you can catch a glimpse of one of the corner base cabinets:

Needless to say, we’re beyond excited to get the ball rolling in the kitchen. The next t0-do’s on the “ASAP List” is to pick out the final selections for the sink, faucets, countertops, backsplash, and light fixture for over the sink – and in that order. Phew.Β

    OMG I love your color choices with your floor stain. Is your fridge a Samsung? I think I just got the same exact one. It has the Apps on the screen.

      Thanks! Yep, it’s a Samsung! We LOVE it! Though it’s the one without the apps. It came out a few months after we got ours, haha. Having your Twitter feed on the fridge must be cool though!

    I’m excited for you guys too! I love reading your blog. I don’t understand why people aren’t going comment crazy, you guys really got something going on here. I like it because it’s similar to, but it’s a different style, different home. Different people. It’s inspiring. Keep up the good work!
