Sorry it has been so long since my last post. I have been busy picking out so many final items. I picked out the backsplash tile for the kitchen and it was installed this past week. I also picked out backsplash tile for the bar area, but it is on backorder, so I have to wait until it gets in stock (might be a couple more weeks:(
I have been laboring over the hardware for the cabinets throughout the house. We have been to Home Depot, Lowes, and Menards, so many times, changing our mind (okay, I am the only one changing my mind). I just know it is something I will need to live with for a long time, so I want to make the right choice. A friend at work told me about a place called nob hill, so I went there at lunchtime on Friday. I really liked the place and it only sells knob and pulls for cabinets. Some are pretty pricey, but the friendly lady that helped me, looked at the pictures on the blog and made a couple suggestions. Still a little over my price range, but when I got home, I scoured the internet at decorglamour.com and found them cheaper (about 40% off). Still a little over what I would have hoped to spend, but at least it was in my ballpark. I picked out hardware from Schaub and Company from thier Siena line. I am going to use the round knobs for all the cupboard doors, medium size pulls (8") for the kitchen drawers, the cup pulls are for the bar area, and the large pulls (12") will be on the the refrigerator and dishwasher panels. What do you think?
Little, by little, we will get there. Hopefully, we can finish before the kids go back to school. They want to have a party with their friends before returning to school, so maybe by mid August, we can make plans to have a fun party.
Stay tuned...I'll take some pictures this week and post them! I am in Pittsburgh on Monday and Tuesday this week, so I won't post until later this week.
