Final Kitchen Pictures

Now that I have had a chance to put everything away and clean the counters, I have my (almost) final kitchen pictures!  I say almost because I still haven’t done anything about the wires hanging above the sink window and because Bradley will be buying and installing a new faucet for me as an anniversary gift:)  (He is trying to speak my ‘service’ love language with my gift and I am all over it!)  Here is what I have decided on after a little research:

Delta Leland One Handle Pull Down Kitchen Faucet with magnetic dock and soap dispenser

Just a reminder of what the kitchen looked like before:

And now my newly-painted cabinets with new brushed nickel hardware:

Update:  Click to see the faucet install and the light installs!

Update July 2012:
I am still really pleased with the finish I received by using Sherwin Williams Adhesion Primer and ProClassic Latex Enamel.  All of the cabinet, door, and drawer finishes have held up really well.  I never applied a clear coat finish, because we kind of liked the matte finish.  I am able to easily wipe them clean.  At times I have to lightly scrub spots of dried splatters from inevitable kitchen messes and at first I was a little worried about it pulling off some paint, but that has never happened.  The paint really did dry hard.  I would definitely recommend these paints for this type of application.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
