Good things come to those who wait ~ I have waited 3 years for Kitchen Cabinets

Those of you who have followed our site for a few years know we bought an older home 3 years ago and are slowly remodeling it.  What was suppose to be a 6 month project has turned into 3 years.  When you find out the whole house has to be re-plumbed and most the wiring redone… it really messed up your budget.

So for the last 3 years my kitchen has not had cabinet doors or upper cabinets.  Most days I was ok with this… But it has not been easy either, in fact some days I was flat out mad and depressed about the whole situation.  Embarrassed to have anyone over, to only explain AGAIN that we are in the middle of a project and trying to stay within a budget.

I realized that my 2 younger kids do not even know what it is like to have cabinets on the doors… lol.

 Well the first part of January we finally had what we needed to get the cabinets done.  My brother and dad are cabinet builders so I went with them to pick out the wood.  Crazy that this pile of lumber was going to transform into my dream kitchen.

Yesterday install began  and the boxes started to go up.

I was so giddy inside I could hardly focus.  We still have a few more days of install and we need to get the trim done in the whole house.  The back-splash also needs to go up and the cabinet lighting… BUT LOOK HOW PRETTY they look already.  I am so glad I did not give up, yes it was a huge sacrifice but yesterday  all those feelings went away…. I am pretty sure there has never been a person more excited about kitchen cabinets than I am right now !!!!!!!

I will update you with more photos as me make more progress.
