New Kitchen!!

Hello all:
We have now "finished" our kitchen (there it is!!). Meaning we still have a bit of trim work to do, but our kitchen has been fully functional for a few months now. It's so comforting to hear the productive hum of the dishwasher taking on a really unpopular chore. All in all, it was a learning experience. I learned a lot about plumbing, electrical, building, smashing, planning, tile laying, and drywall hanging. And probably some other stuff. Good news in other ares: our kitchen is now gorgeous (in my opinion), we spent only about $7000 (less than our big government check for buying a house during a recession), and we can wash dishes while we watch TV. Best thing ever.

I like to read blogs about people who fix up their houses and gardens, and this is when you post pictures and list where you got the stuff. So here are some pictures of our new kitchen, and a list of where we got the stuff (if you want to know):
Cabinets: Ikea
Backsplash: The Tile Shop
Counters: Poured, dyed concrete by Eric the concrete guy
Floors: Cork from Lowe's
Sink and faucet: Ikea
Dishwasher: Ikea
Cabinet pulls: Amerock Swedish Iron from the internet
Light over the sink: Home Depot
Windows: Andersen at Home Depot

Allison - I love your kitchen! It is so nice and bright. I especially love the big sink and the all white backsplash. You and your hubby did an amazing job. When I buy a fixer-upper I might be calling you for assistance!
