Cabinets up!
Well, mostly. There are still a few things to tweak, but I've got a good idea of what it will look like when he's all finished. That's Bill doing his Vanna White impersonation. I thought I was only getting bottom cupboards, but he surprised me with the top ones. Can you imagine how much extra cupboard room I'll have? Whoopie! This end of the dining room opens right into the kitchen, so it will be quite convenient. These are recycled cabinets, and are really just in fine condition- all oak. The pulls need updating, but how easy is that? I am so excited!! Won't be long and I'll be able to paint. Weird, but I am actually considering white. I know, boring, but think how bright and cheery it will be! Maybe I'll paint the ceiling blue...

You enjoy all those cabinets. I know that you have enough of the 'Brady' genes in you that will help you stuff all those cabinets.
