End of Day 15...progress is slowing!

This has been a quiet week. I have had a nasty cold so was very happy to have an empty house. The install guys showed up today and replaced my upper cabinets with the correct ones. They look pretty and are all ready for their knobs and lights. Electrician is still waiting for puck lights to arrive so that is on hold. Downdraft in island was put in place and confirmed that our setup works, now I can notify the soapstone place about final measurements. We still have stuff on back order, which is slowing progress down. What do I miss most....running water in the kitchen!!! Doing dishes in the bathroom upstairs is a hassle. But at least I have an oven now.

Back side of island with motor of downdraft, the side under the cooktop will have drawers for my pots. I am pleased with how it is working out

Project for the weekend, hanging the picture over the banquette bench. I can hardly wait to see it mounted! It will look so pretty with my wall colours. Happy Thanksgiving (Canadian) everyone!

Ali- I have the same bad cold- bummer
Your kitchen is looking great and making progress love your banquette area. Have you picked your cushions and table yet?
Take care and feel better

a2...I feel for you! Cushions will only be on the bottom and I am in love with the bluebells that 2littlefishies used on her banquette. Currently that is what I am thinking if I can find the fabric. Might get a runner down the center of the table made also from it. As far as table goes, I havent looked too much (small problem called cash flow!) and I want to make sure that it is easy to get around, but I love the look of this table.

Sweet - I remember 2 fishes gorgeous fabric on her banquet. Lovely table as well - what type of wood is on the top?

Also - if you have any Amish furniture stores around -they might be able to make what you want. I bought my rise up table and they customized it for me (the original was not a rise up table and they modified the dimensions and added the lift mechanism.

a2 according to the website, the top of the table is wormy maple with a walnut stain. I am fortunate to live in the heart of Mennonite Ontario so there are lots of options for custom made tables. The biggest decision right now seems to be what size and what shape and what sort of base would work best. I do like the look of that table though, it seems like it would suit the kitchen if the size was right. The wood top would bring out some of the brown tones in the cork floor.

Same cold here, too. Miserable.

But I'd feel better if my kitchen was where yours is! Those lights are cool. The table you show is nifty, too!

Would you mind sharing the source for that table? I'm looking for one now and it's very nice looking! Thanks!

Deedles, the progress of the kitchen helps, but getting rid of the cold would thrill me even more at this point! Hope you feel better soon...and thanks!

tam...I live in Ontario so its a Canadian place, but they have nice stuff. Look for the Jackson table. For some reason there website seems to be acting up a bit.

Here is a link that might be useful: table link
