The kitchen is done!

After 2.5 years, finally, the kitchen renovation is a few paint touch ups and a new window covering. Hooray!

When we bought this house, it was 10 days before I gave birth to Ethan. We were finalizing the deal as I was in labour. We bought it even though we had no plans to move for a couple of years, and the house we were living in was fine. It was done, decorated and comfortable, just a little small. But, we loved this neighbourhood, the extra was the right house, just a few years too early. It needed work, alot of work. But we loved it, and it felt right, so we talked ourselves into it. How much work could one small baby be, right? We'd reno'd before, no big deal, we could do it. We were wrong. Really wrong. And, that's why we've been picking away at the kitchen for over two years! Of course we've had a few other urgent (surprise!) projects along the way, but that's a whole other story.

So, the pictures are not professional, and it's difficult to get a good angle, but here it is. Please excuse the fridge and all the stuff on's become a play centre for the boy.

I love this floor! And I really really love the wall tile.

Mostly I just love that it's all done, and that I can cook without drywall dust and plaster chunks falling in the food!
