Kitchen Install & Cute Coasters

Kitchen Install day #1 is done! It started a little slow with lots of little things (some expected and some surprises) to take care of before the cabinets could be hung. There were electrical changes, water for the refrigerator to be moved, flooring to be cut, the stove vent to be moved, drywall to be patched, etc. etc. etc....... But right now there are five out of our nineteen new cabinets attached to the wall! It's starting to look like something! I will try and get some pictures taken so I can share them. Oh, and you should see the *lovely* vinyl floor we discovered under the wood floor. It's 1987 perfection: yellow, gray, and dusty slate blue. I may keep a piece of it just for grins... it's truly hideous!

On a different no
te, I came across these coasters today, and I do believe they are just about the cutest thing I've seen in a long time! They're made out of cork, shaped like slices of toast... they're Toast Coasters! I think I'm gonna have to order me some, and maybe a few extras for gift-giving. You can get yours from the MoMA store here. Delightful!

OK - it's time to relax for a bit, then it's off to the hardware store. Rich and I have a list of things we need to pick up for our continued kitchen adventure tomorrow, then it's home to do some more prep work. Fun, fun!
