Reginald the Key-ng

Well, hi. I suck at updating this. I'm going to blame it on my arms being sore from painting. We are halfway there with the kitchen cabinets! I'm the genius who was lazy and didn't paint the insides of the bottom cabinets but then decided to paint the insides of the top. It sucked.

On inspection day:

A few weeks ago:


Oh hey, girl!

I still have to clean, prime and paint the doors. Jordan will attach them. We have to pick out hardware. We want cup pulls for the drawers and we thought knobs for the doors, but now I'm leaning toward handles. You can see some of my ideas here: http://pinterest.com/ashleykaye/kitchen-inspiration/ We are also having a set of our doors cut so we can install glass. Fancy.

Behold, Reginald! Our key holder:

He's lonely. I think he wants a neighbor. Picture frame? Mirror? I don't know yet.

We are also in the market for a fire place screen since we are still housing the one that the previous owners left behind.

We also need to lay something over the brick hearth. YUCK! I want some sort of stone or tile? Something easy. Suggestions, anyone?

Remember the list I made in this post? Here's an update:
Our list of things to get done:
  • Paint inside of front door
  • Frost the front door windows
  • Unpack boxes
  • Decorate/fill shelf next to fire place, bookcases
  • Hide cables from TV above fire place
  • Replace light bulbs over dining table (how they are already burnt out from July, I will never know)
  • Hang art
  • Paint kitchen cabinets
  • Paint laundry room cabinets
  • Install cabinet hardware
  • Find a new fire place screen and other tools
  • Find couch/chairs that fit our living room space
  • Create custom closet
  • Paint bathroom cabinets
  • Install new hardware in bathrooms
  • Our back room - it's a list in itself

That's all I got.
