Sorry I haven't been posting in a while, but once I got started on the kitchen, every free moment after work was devoted to it. I finally finished all the tough stuff last week, all that's left to do is convert a can light in the ceiling to a hanging lamp that Kelly picked out at Ikea (where else?) The granite people came out last week and attached the sub-tops and made templates, but we are still waiting for them to contact us so we can choose the layout. But even with just the sub-tops (read plywood), life with an island in the kitchen is much better. You can see more details on our kitchen project on Kelly's blog at IkeaFans. It isn't up to date with the latest pics yet, but you can get an idea of what I've been up to the last few weeks.
