And So It Begins!

When you've waited so long for this day... it almost doesn't seem real!  But when the truck with our new kitchen cabinets backed in yesterday I think it finally hit me! 

The sheetrock was done, the old plumbing ripped out! 

Dave and I primed and painted! Patched a few holes in the floor and it looked good to go!

I wanted to start tearing into the boxes with the cabinets but knew I better wait for Mark, our good friend and master carpenter to do that job!  

We have this guy to thank a million times over for making our kitchen remodeling a reality!
Mark is a childhood friend of mine and we've been talking a lot about the days growing up together on our family's farms.  Years have past since we've actually been able to spend any time together so that's been an added plus!
And how 'bout that smile!!  
Hope he keeps smiling when he sees how crooked the walls are in this old house... yikes!!

The dividing board between the refrigerator and cabinets starts to go up! 
This really is happening!!  

Mark hangs the first cabinet! 
More to come.... 
The next couple of days will be so exciting!! 
My camera is clicking!!

  1. Cathy, how exciting for you. All the work and waiting will be worth it. Just think of the wonderful things you can do in your kitchen. I'm sure the first few days after it's finished you won't want to get it dirty==lol! Anxious to see it all finished. I can see you doing the happy dance.

  2. Hi Cathy, oh my, I am excited for you, how wonderful. I think it will all be worth it, can't wait to see.Blessings Francine.

  3. I'm so excited for you! It's going to be awesome. Now, start planning what special meal will be the first cooked in your fabulous new kitchen. It should be an event :)

  4. Very exciting!!! I moved in my house 15 years ago and the first thing I was going to do was remodel the kitchen. Guess what? Hasn't yet happened and it's still ugly as ever...sigh.
    Hugs :)

  5. I am so excited for you! Looking forward to seeing your new kitchen as it unfolds...I'd kill for a new counter top and double wall ovens!!!

  6. I'm excited for you too Cathy! Our kitchen needs to be gutted but we can't do it yet. How wonderful for you! I can imagine how it feels. I kinda felt that way when we did our big windows last summer. Enjoy your new dream kitchen! Can't wait to see more pics. Hugs, Lori

  7. I'm joining the gang with my excitement for your new kitchen. It will be so much fun preparing a meal in there. Keep the camera clicking. I'm looking forward to some update soon.

  10. I am so happy for you !!
    Very exciting stuff going on at your house.
    Can't wait to see the finished kitchen.

  11. We need to get rid of our old kitchen but that might never happen. It is fun to see the progress on yours and I know it will be wonderful!

  12. It is so exciting to get a new kitchen but a real drag to be without it during the remodel.
    can't wait to see more.
