New Year’s Project, Kitchen Details

With that fresh start feeling of a new year Daddy D and I discussed what it was that we wanted to accomplish around the house.  We bought our house 16 months ago, and up until recently we have been in sheer functional mode, as in making the house work our family of six.

We have done a lot, but it has been all over the house.  A little here, a little there.  And there is a list for every room of things that need to be done.  So we decided that with a new year we would take a new approach.  For the month of January we are going to work on the kitchen.

This includes finishing up our pantry redo, the shades that I have started for the window, and a bunch of organizational projects.  We are also going to try to finish the backsplash project from last May.

Although we did complete the one side of the kitchen, there is another side that needs to be done.  We need to install a new microwave hood before we can tile on that side, so that is on the books for this weekend!  I am very excited, as this will also open up the counter top where the microwave has been sitting.  And what girl doesn’t love more counter space?

Finally, we have already started the last item on the list.  We have switched out the woven aged brass pulls for new brushed nickel pulls that match the stainless tiles in the backsplash and the new appliances.  All large cabinets were given these full pulls.  We are still waiting for 9 square knobs to finish the smaller cabinets and drawers.  I can’t wait!

Do you have any projects you are working on for the new year?
