Kitchen Remodel: Week 7 — Part 1

What a difference the backsplash makes! I went with simple subway tile for a classic look and I’m so happy with the outcome:

The electrician and plumber put in appearances last week, too. More fun things to see, like light fixtures and faucets:

So nice to have running water in the kitchen again! And how do you like the pendant lights? I’m quite enamored with them myself.

As you see, the refrigerator got moved into place — hooray! — along with a cute little microwave:

Please excuse the fingerprints on the fridge. I hadn’t wiped them off before taking photos. And most of the protective film on the stainless steel appliances hasn’t been removed yet. My contractor wants me to leave it on until after the painters have come and gone. I did remove it from the dishwasher so I could use it. No more doing dishes in a bucket in the bathtub!

The tall cabinet to the left of the fridge arrived last Friday (the original one was damaged the previous week while being loaded onto the delivery truck so a new one had to be made):

Coming soon: Part 2 of Week 7, with lots more photos.
