This much closer...

We are this much closer still a few thing that need to be done. I still have two upper cabinets that need to be put up, laminet counter on the 4 x 8 island (woo hoo) ceiling to be taped, mudded and painted, cabinet baseboard put up...etc. The large cabinet will hold a minifridge that I already have. My husband needs to add a sturdy base for it to sit on still. The counter on the des will eventually be changed so that it matches. YEAH!!! I was so excited that I could not wait until it was done to add pictures.This was done on a very limited budget!!! I teach classes at a For Keeps Sake and that check has went to purchase everything for this room! Cabinets were free so that helped ALOT. You can see the before in a previous post.
Let me know what you think!?!?

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend!
The weather was beautiful again.
The cabinets have been painted for my scrap room and completed and
I am having regrets of the color I have picked.
My husband needs to find a taper to tape and mud the walls
so the room will be on hold a bit again.
We will be leaving for vacation on Wednesday so no posts for a while.
We are going to Gaitlynberg, TN for white water rafting and four wheeling through the mountains. Yeah....
Tuesday's July 15th's class
See you there!
