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.
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!

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