We can haz cabinets?

Lolspeak style. Speaking of which, our bulldog Matilda (Matty) was recently on loldogs:



Pure awesomeness. Btw, I can not take credit for the captioning, only for the picture. Alas, I am not creative enough for lolcaptions.

So, on Friday I pulled an all-day painting marathon and we now have a green kitchen (we can haz green kitshun - see? not so good).
Here it is after the first coat:


And after working all weekend, we accomplished hanging up some of the cabinets. Unfortunately for us, the cabinet place totally screwed up the corner sink cabinet. (a) It is not actually a sink cabinet, just a corner cabinet, and (b) it is 3 inches too short on both sides in the back. However, being the crafty people that we are, we managed to work it out so that we don't have to return the cabinet and wait 6 weeks for a new one. This only took about 5.6723 hours to accomplish. Hence, our slow progress.

Top cabinets are in, the dreaded corner cabinet lurks in the corner...




A little peak at the granite tile floor which, I am proud to say, Casey and I laid entirely by ourselves with our own sweat, blood and tears. And yes, I am quite sure all three of those bodily fluids went into that floor. But don't worry, no other bodily fluids are present...


I was a little apprehensive about the grout color at first. We used what appeared to be a dark grey but it ended up drying into a light grey. I was hoping for grout closer to black. However, I think this is growing on me. Plus, I have lost the energy and will to care.
Next weekend: install appliances, hang cabinet over the fridge, put together peninsula cabinets.
