The hubs recruited the help of my son and started by sucking out all of the installation that was in the ceiling and raised up the ceiling to match the vaulted ceiling in the dining room. There were so many wires and pipes running through that ceiling I couldn't believe it. It was definitely quite the mess.

Originally I wanted white cabinets but the hubs put the kibosh on that. He is a carpenter so he insisted on seeing the wood and not covering it up with paint. So I decided if I can't have white then I wanted a brown finish. You would think I asked to reinvent the color wheel. I knew I didn't want something with a yellow or a red finish but who knew that would be such a difficult thing. I finally got the finish I wanted and we proceeded.
Our original countertops were a faux wood finish laminate that weren't even secure. We opted for granite countertops with travertine tile backsplash. The granite is called Juparana St Cecilia. I absolutely love my kitchen it's not as big as I would like but I love everything else about it.
