The Home Stretch


I swear there is a quote out there about the last certain amount of yards before the end being the hardest – I wish I could remember the exact saying but whatever it is – it’s true. We are so close to wrapping up Lindsey and Doug’s renovation… if we could just get the bathroom vanity taken care of and a few other odds and ends we’d be done. And we are all ready for that.

I kind of love and hate the last few weeks of a project. Things happen really quickly and you see a lot of change – which is awesome. But also it’s this part of the project where the details matter the most – in my opinion anyway – because you can see what worked out wonderfully… or if something is a little off. And if there is a delay during this part of the project, no matter how  short (or long) it feels like forever.

Here is some eye candy of the kitchen cabinet installation and some other progress…

Almost done, still waiting on hardware and the window seat.

Photos of the wallpaper to come soon… and once we get the vanity, the nook shelf and the trim up in the kitchen we’ll officially be done. Fingers crossed!
