Kitchen Renovation- Days 7, 8, and 9

A lot happened with the kitchen this past week
The tile went in and got grouted. The drywall went up on the ceiling and got mudded. New appliances were installed. Things were put into cabinets. Bake rack was bought up and stuff was put on it. It’s finally starting to feel like a real kitchen again. We were even able to cook for the first time in about 2 weeks (Sorry to burst your bubble, but this project is not happening in consecutive days in a row. Aaron works full time, I work part time and I’m in school full time. We’ve had some evenings off in between renovation madness.)
Here are some pictures of our beautiful progress!

Bake rack for some needed storage.

Ceiling looks bright again! Need to touch up my paint job, but that’ll be fairly easy.

Our first meal in the new kitchen! Salmon, noodles, and veggies. Yum!
A few issues arouse this week. 1. The old cabinet doors no longer work. The only kind of hinges that will work with them are the ugly ones that were originally on them.

They kinda look like this. Since we want a more updated look, we’re paying our handyman friend to make up all new doors, which is going to cost more than we budgeted and it’s going to take another week or so.

But we can use these pretty hinges instead :)
2. The floor was back-ordered and won’t get here until next week. It’s really pretty and I can’t wait to show it off. 
So after all that progress, we’re kind of at a standstill for a while. I’m just glad we’re able to use the kitchen again.
We still have little things that need done too. Installing new lighting fixtures, getting baseboards cut and in place after the floor is done, and touching up all the paint. They won’t take much time, but they really help in making the space feel done. 
Until next time!
