It was also thrilling to have them both love the samples I had painstakingly chosen. Earlier, I qualified Babe in quotes as my kitchen "designer" as she is implementing what I've asked for but deep breath, drumroll..... I designed our kitchen friends! I hope you like it as much as we do when it's finished. One of these days I will post before/after photos. Here's a taste though, the color scheme vibe, if you will, is wine meets fog. We can't wait.
PS - a plea: please love me through my anxiety folks and reassurances are welcome. It was super scary today to write our contractor the first big deposit check. It amounts to half the final cost which will inevitably be more than currently stated. We hope we're not biting off more than we can chew but we continually remind ourselves, the cost of not doing it this way...is higher. And as a friend of mine once said - "We're cats. We always land our feet."
