A Kitchen...I Has It

For those of you that have read my post from a couple weeks ago, I had a rough time while P and the contractor Steve worked on my kitchen. After over two weeks (yes, I know, those of you that had new kitchens done, it takes lots longer than that, this was not a redo nor was I allowed to plan for this) it is done to the point where I have it back. Before and After pics in the slide show at the bottom. Click on it to see better.

My kitchen is my domain. I cook, research recipes, eat and live here. It is warm and cozy in the cold weather. It is hot in the summer but I still love it. I love my new counter level stainless steel table (IKEA! Yes Ikea!). I love the floor (will take some upkeep though, little nervous about that). The only things left to replace are the ceiling fan and the fridge. We have the fridge picked out, French Door LG (that actually fits our little kitchen) and we are looking at fans b/c the ceiling is pretty low. I spent some quality time with Julia (Child) and some tea on Sunday before my Lottery Yarn shift. Lovely. :)

Well, I think 2 weeks of wait was worth it, don't you? There's something to be said about a cool looking kitchen!

I like your kitchen! Can I come hang out in it? ;)
I have a lousy college dorm kitchen...i.e, a sink, cabinet, and small fridge. Yours looks really nice and so comfortable.

I love that you work at Lottery Yarn and shop IKEA! That says a lot about the pay at LY and the discount program! Ha.
I am in need of a fun IKEA trip. Why don't you come up and go with me?
Hope the kitchen makes your headache go away!
