You know what these are, right?

You're looking at my new kitchen! I can hardly believe they're here. I'm about to have a real kitchen!

This past weekend, Cam and his Brother-in-law David, made a trip all the way to California (more on that later) and brought home our kitchen cabinets.  Thanks guys!

Thankfully they made it home with no incidents, and Cam was very impressed that our Trailblazer pulled the 14 foot trailer "like a champ." 

We managed to unload them all yesterday.  It took a good part of the day to do, since the 7 months pregnant helper tends to move a little very slow.  There were about 3 pieces that were way to big for me to lift. So we called up his other Brother-in-law Jimmy, to help out with those. I think our family will be happy when our house is done and we don't have to pester them for help!

The nice part? We don't have to deal with the task of installing them. Next week, the owner of the company (and family friend) that built these will be here for a couple days to do that for us.

Here's a close up of the lower cabinet color.  We had them lacquered in Benjamin Moore's Ebony King. It's a deep blue-black shade, and I love how it turned out!

I can't wait to show you the before and after pictures once these are all installed and our kitchen finally starts to come together. We still have a lot of work to do this week: clearing out our temporary set-up, and a final sanding, priming and painting of the walls and ceilings. Make sure to check back to see the progress!
