Christmas in July!

7 07 2008

Happy post 4th of July weekend!  We had a great weekend at my family’s huge annual party –  lots of swimming, volleyball, good food, great family and friends, and, of course, fireworks!  

After the fun overload, we headed back home to prime and paint the kitchen.  It’s hard to see the color in the pictures, but it’s called “Light French Gray,” and it’s a light bluish gray color.  For now we just did one quick coat, and we didn’t worry about getting close to the ceiling, because the cabinets will go all the way up to the ceiling with crown molding.  The second coat of paint will come after the cabinets are installed.

We needed to hurry up with the paint job, because the cabinets were delivered today.  Woo!  It feels like Christmas in July.  Check it out:

The contractor is coming tomorrow or Wednesday to start the installation.  I’m beyond excited, as you can imagine.  After the cabinets are installed, we’ll paint again – a second coat for the walls and the dreaded trim work.  We’re also going to paint the built-in cabinet white and change the hardware on it to match the cabinets.

We’re a little tired after doing so many home improvements, but Mia might be the most tuckered out.  Poor puppy… napping on the air conditioning vent is exhausting!

Stay tuned for another update in a few days!
