It’s a hardwood life

My life has been consumed by woods, stains, doors, appliances and the like. The good news for you is that you won’t bore quickly of my updates because they apparently will be infrequent. *Ahem* I’ll try to do better!

It may be obvious to you that we are no where near installing kitchen cabinets. That is true. I, however, need to iron out all these details for a few reasons.

#1 It’s easier (and cheaper) to change the plans if needed with the framer, plumber, electrician and other workers now instead of after the drywall is up.

#2 When we get to the point of installing cabinets, we don’t want to have a 6 week delay while they are ordered.

#3 It’s kinda exciting.

So let’s look at some pictures. Mind you, none of these is how our kitchen will actually look. Good heavens – I do have a budget to stick to!

We are planning on an oven in the cabinet…but I don’t think we’ll be able to afford the double oven. Oh well 🙂

This is pretty cool. Why do I need a budget again?

I like the feeling of this kitchen. Very warm, don’t you think? Although we can’t have glass in any of our doors. We’re much too messy for that! And the multiple colored cabinets is not going to happen. No way. Hubby is not the biggest fan. So let’s keep looking.

We both like this color. I think it looks a little rustic. What do you think? Could it fit into a southwest home? We’re not going all “Cactus and Kokapelli” though so it’s not too southwestern.
In other news, I do still own a sewing machine. Let me show you this magazine bag I made for another kinder mom.

She just wanted something with which to carry magazines to her children’s sports practice. It’s pretty cute. Don’t you think?

I did put a pocket inside. Everyone can use a pocket. Right?

Enough rambling for this post. Next time…updated pictures of the “house.”

    Enjoyed seeing the pictures. Know it is a busy time with so many decisions to make. Anxious to see pictures of pouring the foundation and other progress in the house.
    Love, Mom

    I’m trying to redo my kitchen, but am having commitment issues. Too many cool things out there. Cute bag. What a thoughtful gift.

    very nice…and funny. I am sure whatever you pick will be wonderful. Remember to put a light above the sink! 🙂
