Cabinet Takedown!

Remember that picture? That's what our kitchen looked like when we moved in. And below? Well that's what it looks like right now! Well from a slightly different angle, and I promise that I cleaned up, I was just too excited to clean up before I took the picture....

While Greg's parents visited over the weekend, we took advantage of Greg's dad skills and took down the cabinets over the island and installed some pendant lighting. The pictures don't do it justice, it's such a huge difference now! It would have taken Greg and I so much longer to do without his dad, we just wouldn't have been confident in getting the right parts and installing the electrical. Overall, it was a pretty simple job though, the electrical took about 2-3 hours to get everything wired and hung. We even added a wireless switch, which was necessary since the line they are on was not attached to a wall switch, so it would have always been hot {meaning the lights would always be on for you non-electrical people out there}. We still need to patch the ceiling and paint above the lights, so we'll probably do that when we paint the cabinets.

Oh by the way, I think we finally decided on a color!! But you'll just have to wait a few weeks for that reveal :)
