Ta-Da

I present my new kitchen!

Under budget, ahead of schedule, and totally AMAZING!

I do have to say that my over zealous planning, researching, and spreadsheet making tendencies came in very handy.  Also a bit of flexibility helped, too.

The only real issue we encountered was the floor tile we had originally ordered was out of stock, so I ran over to the tile store and picked out a new shade-and we like it...a lot.

Oh yes, there were a few leaks in our newly installed water filter, but after a few attempts of cutting off the water supply we were leak free!

I'm so glad that I planned, planned, and planned some more, my only "surprise" was that I didn't think about new outlets in the kitchen which we totally needed to go with our new back splash.  Josh did a fantastic job installing all the new switches and outlets and now can add the titles electrician and plumber to his repertoire.

Looks great! We're in the process of price comparing & buying new appliances in prep to sell our condo. Since you're a NoVA girl do you mind me asking where you found the best deal?
