Progress report

I'm happy to report that some big progress has been made on the kitchen! Here's a few of the little and big things that are done.
.
Bob took down the ugly light that hung in the kitchen and put in recessed lighting. Not only do the lights look much better, they also give better light.
.

We are putting new doorknobs on the pantry, back closet and half bath which is next to the kitchen. The old knobs were brass, fluted style and looked very dated. I love these ones!
.

This new light hangs over the kitchen sink.
.

Last but certainly not least are the cabinets. They look like they are brand new, with several coats of paint and new hardware. Bob had the day off Saturday and I was working. Imagine my happiness when I came home and found doors on the cabinets!
He has since put up the cement board on the back splash, preparing for tile. Next comes the countertop, sink and faucet. I'm thrilled with each step that is done!

Mari,

You are making good progress on your renovations. Your kitchen cabinets look like new. I am looking forward to seeing the new countertop and back splash. It's going to look terrific.

Once we are done upstairs, I really need to save up to renovate my very old and grungy looking kitchen. I do have to replace cabinets so am not sure if this will get done before next year. A little at a time makes such a difference. Great job.

Blessings,
Mary

This all looks great! Great job on the cabinets and the new lights. I like the recess lighting better too. We did that in our house some and did some different lights and I am happy about that.
