The end of DIY Diary

Day 3.8
Well, the kitchen is not so much finished, but I thought I would end the diary here. We at least have a really good idea of what the finished project will look like. Some cabinet doors are hung and I just put the hardware in them. It looks frickin awesome! I picked plain nickel (nickel, I think, kind of a dirty looking stainless steel color) coated knobs and kind of funky drawer pulls (not installed yet due to a very sleepy me painting the second coat of the drawers with trim color rather than cabinet color) and two fun grape cluster knobs for the hardware. The hinges we bought are modern minimalistic which is making for a fun juxtaposition with the green cabinets and red walls combination which is feeling retro.

Thanks for sticking with me through our weekend renovation project. I'm really not sure how those people on Trading Spaces did it! In the next several months, watch for new counter tops, tile back splash, floors and appliances. I'll post pictures soon!

Can you post a picture of your walls and cabinets? I'm dying to see the colours and hardware :)
