So yes, I suck at blogging. But here I am, a couple of months later, back at it again. We are about a week out from a finished kitchen, and not a moment too soon. I will be on October break for an entire week for the first actual week of a finished kitchen. Yay! I don't have to scrounge around for food anymore and beg from teenagers!
Our cabinets FINALLY arrived from Scherrs Cabinets. Of course, it didn't arrive in perfect condition and some cabinets were nicked and damaged. They easily accepted them back from us. The biggest issue came from this IDIOT who our contractor hired to install the cabinets. Well, wherever that guy went to cabinet installation school should take his cabinet diploma back. The dunce managed to put the doors on BACKWARDS so that the painted finished side was facing in, and the unfinished side out. If that wasn't bad enough, he put exposed screws on the outside so all you saw were silver screws on the outside of each cabinet. He was fired immediately by our contractor, who had to cover the cost for new upper cabinets. Argh.
Well, here they are:

We also ordered some lights from Overstock.com. For our dining room chandelier, we ordered the Ventura, partly for the name.
Cabinets, almost done and organized!
This week should be countertop and appliances! Finally, a working kitchen after 3 LONG months.
