Out of the box! Top it off with BIRCH countertops and wah-lahh!

The pulls.

The pulls.

The pulls!!!

I obsessed about these for some time — brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, matchy, mismatchy???

Martha Stewart, soft iron. Yes. I love the weight.

I had this—”I don’t want my kitchen to look like it is floating away,” sense in me. These pulls seem grounding.

And the flooring!!

The flooring—friend Gloria gets full credit for this one. (You too Mr. K.) Thanks pal for giving away your vast knowledge so freely. I love them. Even after I freaked out thinking they were too dark.

I am happy to say I love.

Continuing in the spirit of spreading the joy—flooring from Home Depot—distressed, hand scraped hickory.

Still have the faucet to resolve. And the plumber installs tomorrow—better get on that. The sound of running water out of this baby is very exciting!

Oh, my sweetie-pie sink. You and I know how much I love thee.

And the hardware for the pantry cabinets—decided on handles. Need to grab those too.

Mr. K really kicked it down this weekend getting the floors down.

At least this far—the living room lies in wait for its turn at some new flooring.

Off to the Home Depot.

Oh! Before I go! Jake just called—he’s coming to help Mr. K cut something quite amazing for the island surface!!

Oh boy! Oh my!

Will snap a pic of that surface top—all I can say is Second Hand Rose is involved.

(Need I say more??)

    Where to begin?! First, I cannot believe how quickly this is all coming together. Mr. K is kicking some serious butt! The butcherblock and flooring is already in??? Wow! Secondly, the pulls are delicious. But the combination of cupboards, countertops, wall color, pulls, flooring, and farmhouse sink… wonderful!

    !!!!! I agree all!!!! Too fun.

    And Gloria – Mr. K only did the flooring on this last round. Last week the BIRCH got installed by the pros. Grateful for that one. Whew. I realize we could of just hired PG Carlson Construction Co. Though I believe you were quite busy enough girl! (BUILDING HER OWN HOUSE!!!)
