After getting a price from the only place in town that sells our current (maple, natural colored frou-frou galen style Schrock brand) cabinets, we decided that if we are going to spend that kind of money, we should see how much it costs to get exactly (the style/color) that we want.
So, while E was at the land installing a new stove in the "cabin" with Doug....
I picked the Diamond company Wallace style in coconut color (love that it had a food name like the paint colors in our dining room and entry!) to go with our current floor tile and my dishes (cabinet on left)
(this is the first one, before we made a few little changes)
The boys had been so good and patient, that I took them out to dinner(Chipotle), then we went home and watched Star Wars before bed.
Lowe's 50% paint promotion (which saved us 500.00!) only lasted for two more days, so we had to act fast! After the Bengals game the next day (today) we went to the Lowe's together and placed our order!
(400.00 overall, and an extra 600.00 from gift card rebate)!
4-6 weeks until I get new cabinets!!! SQUEEEEEEE!!!!
(Came in on Friday.) replaced by our neighbor and the plumbing done. Unfortunately for me, none of that is something I can do. I've been in such a "project" mood- (Fall does that to me.)!
Since E vetoed me refacing our stairs or putting up chair molding
(the one in the livingroom swivels so E can watch football from the dining room on Sunday at lunch)
am researching backsplash and (light) countertop options, and plan to make some unauthorized changes downstairs....:)
UPDATE- I realized that night that I had completely forgotten to order a cabinet for over the stove! It took two days of calling (because my lady was on vaca and the other lady was off) but we got it ordered...412.96, gulp!
