This week, a lot of really awesome things happened, and the kitchen cabinets are coming in tomorrow. I’m basically giddy with excitement, or paint fumes. Here’s some of the great new stuff!

Just seeing this makes me really anxious to see the finished floors on the main level as well. I love the richness of the colour. With light neutral walls and a cream and white kitchen, I think the look is really coming together.
