Light at the End of the Tunnel

Well, sort of.  The painting part of The Great Kitchen Project is almost behind us -- we've got the second coat of green on just about everything.  The shelf front inserts still need a couple of coats, the window trim needs a bit of touch-up and we decided to paint the floor of the cabinet under the sink.  

That's it for the painting, but Hugh won't be able to come to install the cabinet doors until the second week of February.  From now until then, we'll clean up the project clutter in the kitchen and then return all of the kitchen stuff back into the cabinets.  There it will patiently wait until Hugh gets the doors back on.  Even without the doors, it will be good to get the kitchen moved back into the kitchen -- this wandering about the house, looking for the can opener or a teaspoon is getting old.

In the meantime, we're looking into getting a new range hood to fit into the space where the now defunct microwave used to be above the stove, see about maybe replacing the stove itself, and order knobs and pulls for the cabinets.  January always seems to be a very expensive month.
