The cabinets and counter tops are in. And I love them. I mean, really love them. And I know I shouldn’t love as much as I do, but they’re gorgeous, and just what I wanted, and what we’ve waited and waited for. Best birthday present ever! Justin did such a great job putting everything together. If building IKEA furniture was an Olympic sport, Justin would certainly be a gold medal favorite. He rocks my face off.
I have to say though, I am a little overwhelmed now. I finally have cabinets in place and beautiful counter tops, and I can’t even begin to think how I am going to organize everything! The organization of a kitchen is no simple task. What is the BEST location for my flour, sugar, and baking soda? Do I want my spatulas in a drawer, or in a crock on the counter, or hanging on the wall? Should my knife rail go on the right or left side of the oven? Is it okay if the microwave goes right next to the sink? Plus we still have 7 more drawers coming to fill in a few base cabinets! And Justin will hang the shelves on the wall this weekend! More space! We have ingredients, food supplies, bowls, plates, utensils, pans and pots strewn all over our living space, and I NEED to get it put away. Quality of life will greatly improve when everything is put away.
Did I mention how much I love this kitchen? I do. I love it a lot.
