Today, we have a short and sweet update about a little addition to the kitchen. Remember when we talked about ordering a blind to go over the kitchen sink? Yeah? That was about nine weeks ago. Out of the blue, the day before Christmas, the UPS guy finally appeared at our front door with a big, long box. Merry Christmas to us! With all of the holiday activities going on, we ended up not being able to hang it up until a few days later, but, now, it’s up and we think it looks pretty awesome…

The instillation process was a 5-minture no-brainer. All Greg had to do was drill the two metal brackets that came with the shade into the window frame and snap the shade into place on the brackets. It looks a ton nicer than the inexpensive white ones we had before and the warm dark tones really help warm everything up. It’s the perfect finishing touch we were looking for. Do you guys know what this means?! The kitchen is done. I’m sure I’ll be switching our accessories every now and then but all of the “permanent fixtures” are installed and accounted for. That’s a huge relief – and kind of a weird feeling all at the same time, haha.

Here’s another shot of the shade from the peninsula…

I’m totally still learning the ins and outs of my camera when it comes to shooting the kitchen – specifically shots with the kitchen window in it. No matter how overcast it is outside, the light coming in from the window is blaring in like crazy. If I get the window area just right, the rest of the kitchen looks gloomy. Which is why I’m going to be watching my Shoot Fly Shoot class again this next next weekend. Because, clearly I need it! haha
