Nearly there….new kitchen!

My super wonderful husband has worked non stop for days on our kitchen and it’s nearly done 😀

The units are in, the counters are in and the shelves are up. Tomorrow he’s going to be making a start on the tiling and he has a couple of cupboard doors to make.
I started unpacking and putting stuff away yesterday then today I got to do the fun part….dressing the shelves and deciding where my new pictures and things were going to go 🙂

I found some gorgeous tea cups and saucers when we were sorting through all Ant’s boxes that have been in the loft for the last 10 years and I couldn’t believe we’d had them all that time and I hadn’t seen them!
I absolutely love them and they were the first items I put on the new shelves.

The shelves need re-painting but I’m waiting until the summer holidays when the kids are away with family before I do all the painting that needs doing. I’ve got loads of shelves and the new bookcases either side of the fireplace to paint and it’s easier to do that when there are no kids about.

I can’t wait to share my before and after photos. It feels like we’ve been without a kitchen for ever and that light at the end of the tunnel is quickly getting brighter.

Here’s a little peek at one of my new purchases 🙂
