we can cook again

The kitchen is finally done! Meaning... it's been painted, new countertops, new sink and faucet, new backsplash and I love it! We still haven't been able to put everything back together (as you can see in the pictures, but it is so nice for everything not to be leaking or torn up or anything! yay!

We only ran into a few minor problems during the process:

1. The countertop installation workers probably showed up high to our house
2. They cut the hole for the sink too big even though Wes gave them the template, which they refused to use
3. We found this out when Wes and my dad tried to put the sink in and all 115 lbs of it almost fell completely through
4. They got fired after that snafu
5. New people came and brought us a new countertop
6. The tile guys came and took a really long time getting it done, even though I think it was more than they thought it would be... they had to rebuild some walls
7. We didn't look at how much space was needed to put in the microvent and turns out we had them put the tile up too high
8. My dad had to learn to drill through tile
9. My dad had to go back to Home Depot to get a better drill bit and some how caught my house on fire in the process
10. My mom and I put out the fire and had to leave because of the smoke
11. My sink started leaking today

But! All in all it turned out great! Do you like it?

We love those do-it-yourself-home-renovation-projects-inspired-by-professionals-on-HGTV. The kitchen is gorgeous though, and well worth all the effort I'm sure. Get to cookin' girl!
