O.K., So I Promised

that I would share pictures. And I did -- but of the bathroom tile. Well, here's what some of you have been waiting to see, including me: the kitchen cabinets.

It was with great joy and a jolt of excitement that I was able to step back into the dining room on Saturday morning to admire the first of the completed kitchen cabinet doors. I'd been waiting months for that moment and I like to think it was worth it. Especially after I started adding to the collection in the days that followed. That's what gets us to this view.

You'll have to excuse all of the debris, the fact that some of the doors are not done, none of the doors have hardware yet, the drawer fronts are still unchanged and that the lower cabinets haven't even been cleaned out yet so they're a mess. Just ignore all that. Please.

But you can admire the backsplash if you'd like. Oh, go ahead. I'll let you. Now I can't wait to see the new faucet against the backdrop of the cabinets and the backsplash. But I will have to. As you can see, I still have plenty more cabinet doors to do. And plenty of touch-up painting.

So, that's how far I got on these during Project Genesis. I'm declaring the mission an overall success. And now, with a three-day weekend looming large, I'm hoping to make even more progress on the variety of tasks on the list.

I can't wait to see it all in person for the big reveal! I think it makes the kitchen look much bigger - love, love, love it!

I love the backsplash! I have the same thing, only in the bronze color. It was you who gave me the idea, after all. :)

Fantastic! It all really looks so fresh yet with vintage character.

Your backsplash was used on DesignStar this season. Torie got big kudos for it. That could have been you.

It's coming right along! I like the two tone cabinet fronts. You've been a busy usual! :-)

Debbie -- Thanks! I love looking at other peoples' houses, too. Yours should be a lot of fun.

MG -- Thanks. You will have to see it live when it gets a little closer to done. It's gettin' there. :-)

Jayne -- You know what they say about great minds ...

Why -- Exactly what I'm going for. Thanks! (We've been watching some of the Design Star but didn't see that episode. That would so NOT be me.) :-)

kspin -- Funny you should say that. The mother said the same thing! I, however, want one or the other though I'd have been OK with NOT painting the panels.
