yay!

I've been biting my nails this past week or so wondering if we were going to be able to get the cabinets we wanted for the kitchen. I found out today we will be able to get them! Here's pretty much what they'll look like.

They'll be all white like this with the same door style. There will also be one drawer above each lower cabinet. None of the doors will have glass in them. We will also have a microwave above the stove instead of a hood like this one. Oh - and no crown molding above, they'll go all the way to the ceiling with some sort of simpler trim at top. Anyway, it's going to be a big undertaking (this kitchen) and the next step is buying some appliances. (I haven't had a dishwasher for about 15 years). It's going to be so great when it's done!

Awsome!! I like the white we have it now in our kitchen, the house we are building will also have that same flat pannel style you are doing now but with natural alder, the white would have been too large of an upgrade with Ivory homes.

Looks good. I'm excited for you. I really don't know how you do it without a dishwasher - that's amazing.

I haven't had a dishwasher for about a year and a half... I don't know how you did it for 15 years! I don't even do the dishes because apparently I don't do them good enough :D The cabinets look beautiful!

Hi back at ya! I am pretty new to the blogging world and have not blog hopped like I've wanted to, so little time! Ashley told me you had a blog, but I hadn't had a chance to check it out. Let's keep in touch...I'd love to hear how you're doing. Your family is beautiful. 4 boys! I wouldn't have minded having 4 girls, but it has been so fun to experience the "boy" side of life. I LOVE the cabinets. That is something we still want to do...we've just painted them for now! You guys look the same, too, just different haircut...cute! I'll link you up to my blog. Keep in touch!

It will look fabulous. You have such an eye. Your house is like watching HGTV and seeing everything done over. I like the process. You definitely deserve a little Hawaii trip if you've been doing your own dishes for that long.
