They're gorgeous! I love the finish on those cabinets. What is the upper with the beadboard back going to be?


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Wow, they are awesome! There sure is a lot of light in your kitchen...the yellow you chose looks perfect!


 o

 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

2littlefishies --

Your cabinets are gorgeous beyond belief!
The yellow is perfect and sets off the white so nicely.
They are everything we have all been dreaming of for you
and then even more.
I can well imagine how delighted you are.
I can't wait to see how it all progresses.

(I'm so glad that after 8 days I got my electricity and internet
back so that I can see your pictures.)


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

drool-inducing!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Beautiful, gorgeous, lovely and wonderful! I have been so looking forward to seeing your plans come to life.
The yellow is just perfect, soft and warm. Yum.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

The fretting over just the right yellow paid off! The color is gorgeous! As is everything else about your cabs. I can't wait to see the rest of the install tomorrow.

Here's hoping your adrenalin subsides a bit tonight so you can sleep. I remember those days....


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

That is the OTY, and it is set off beautifully by the white. I cannot wait to see this kitchen unfold. Oh my gosh.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

fishies, so pretty!! your kitchen is going to epitomize charm!!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

I read all your other posts and have been waiting to see your reveal. Looking fabulous so far. It's definitely worth all the thought and effort you put in to it. Your yellow and white kitchen might just become the new standard here on GW! The One True Kitchen! Can't wait to see the finished kitchen.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Oh, so beautiful! And the details with the feet and the beadboard and the furniture-like floor finish on your end cabs are fabulous. You must be over the moon. Can't wait to see it all finished.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

From what I can see, definitely the 'right' yellow, hooray!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

They're beautiful and the quality looks superb. You must be bursting with pride. Where did you put the small corner cab with the walnut top? Can't wait to see more!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

OMG... they are AMAZING! so gorgeous. I love all the special details at the corners and the valances, etc. etc... you put so much time and attention into this and it shows! Can't wait to see how it comes together which I am sure will be absolutley spectacula.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Fishies---it really is the PERFECT yellow! You must be soooo happy. Can't wait to see more!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

fishies-they are amazing! They look like they are made so beautifully! love the detail on the door panels, it's so different from what i usually see-makes it extra specal! Can't wait to see more tom.! try to get some sleep, u must be so excited!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

No guts, no glory. You had the guts to do a yellow kitchen, fishies, and now you get to live in that spectacular kitchen! Even when everything's at sixes and sevens, I'm utterly smitten by your kitchen.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

I'm in love already with your kitchen, imagining eating a big slice of vanilla cake with lemon chiffon icing!!

Beautiful!!!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Big smiles. Gorgeous!!!!! More big smiles. Having just had my cabinets installed two weeks ago (though I still can't use my kitchen....) I can tell you you won't stop smiling for a long time. It's so gratifying to see all your thinking and planning come together as you envisioned.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Thanks, everyone! There is still much work to be done but I am very happy with the cabinets! The yellow did intensify as the sun started to go down but still is a beautiful color. I am pretty sure we'll be fine on that front. DH likes them a lot so that's good sign!

marti8a- That beadboard spot is just open shelving for some of my accessories. I actually wish that spot was bigger - it's 36" - but I didn't want the cabs on either side to be too small.

linelle- that is my organizational spot. It is to the left of the future banquette bench. There will be cabinetry above. There is another 4' spot to the right of the banquette- for a sinkless bar area with fridge drawers below.

I really appreciate all of your positive comments. I will post more pics as things progress ; ) Thank you ALL for helping so much with this kitchen!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Oh, those are fantastic! The yellow is perfect. And the crisp corners on the end panels and the way the corners go from rounded to square are great. Try to get some sleep so you can take some more pics tomorrow!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

These are beautiful! that one shot of the cabinet in the sun is perfect (3rd one down). I am looking forward to seeing the whole installation. Great job.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Your cabinets make me smile! Lovely Fishies!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Those are heart-stoppingly beautiful. Can't wait to see it all finished.

 o

Gorgeous!!! Congrats to you!! Can't wait to see all of the pieces of your beautiful kitchen come together. :)


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

They are gorgeous! I love the yellow with the white. Such pretty colors!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

So what color IS that yellow? I like that it actually is yellow (not cream), but not screamingly so.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

catbuilder- It is BM Barley. It is a "touch" off from the large chip I have but barely so. (Of course, I had to check and obsess about that) lol


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Fishies - that is looking tremendous!!
Love the milky yellow color and you are making great progress - do you have power?


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

I will simply note that it's been an entire day and no new pictures. You are slacking there LittleFishies. Get busy!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

They are just beautiful! Love the shade of yellow with the white. So happy for you!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!

You must be thrilled! Keep the pics coming!

Cheers,
Katie


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

I think Barley has come through for you...


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Thanks everyone!!! Unfortunately a few of the pieces were missing some corner details (I didn't even get a chance to notice) so they had to put them back on a truck back to PA to be fixed. Hence, no new pictures. : ( We're supposed to get them back on Friday.

I'll be sure to put up some more photos when they go up!

katieob- What finish is on your walnut & do you like it?


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Wow! So glad I checked back on the GW to see your cabinets! They are beautiful. I cannot wait to see the doors! I was going through some magazine clippings yesterday and there was your inspiration kitchen. I had it pulled out of the magazine and with it were pictures of the rest of the house where that kitchen is located. Let's just say that it is GORGEOUS!

I will keep checking in to see how it looks! The yellow is so dreamy. Makes me rethink my choices.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Yes! It is beautiful indeed. I am glad for you that you, unlike I, fretted over the exact right shade of yellow!

Could you remind me which yellow you went with? :-) I may want to steal it for my wall!!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Thanks p.ball- Was that a recent one? I have the original Traditional Home it was in. I think it was from 2004? I forget now.

Angie- It's BM Barley. 199. It does vary in intensity with lighting, but I do love it. I may have cut it back a bit (in some lighting) but I try not to let myself go there as that's not possible! lol I love it most in full sun!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

LOVE YELLOW !!!!

Looking real good. Look at all that storage! One thing, about the island.... it looks like it has overhang on both long sides in photo and only on one side in the other photo. What is that about?


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Never mind. I think it is an optical illusion, in a good way.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Looking good! I'm so excited to see what it looks like with all the drawers, I can't imagine how excited you must be!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Oh, it just glows!! I love it! Can't wait to see the doors!!

Nancy


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

donaleen- Yes the island has an overhang on 2 sides. It's just the photo : )


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Fishies - it is all coming together. Beautiful and subtle - loving it so far!!


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Sniff, sniff, it's so beautiful...


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Lovely and beautiful. And. I think this seems like the worlds fastest kitchen remodel. It seems like just a few weeks back you were wondering about colors and now the cabs are going in? Not that that's a bad thing, :)

When are the drawers and doors going on?


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Really deedles? lol We started with the architect over a year ago and kitchen design started last fall. I just took MONTHS to choose a yellow! lol
Our renovation started July 1 so we are on 4 1/2 months without a kitchen. I feel like it's been FOREVER! ha! : )


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Four and a half months without a kitchen? That is a long time. Oooph.

I bet it goes fast now.


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

Yes, the kitchen was a galley and we pushed out the back of the house 7 feet, removed a couple of walls, moved the basement stairs, vinyl sided the house, built a new porch in the back and some other minor things. It was a big job (for us anyway). We were supposed to be done at the end of October but waiting for the cabs held us up. Hopefully by December 1st! : )


 o
RE: The cabinets are coming! The cabinets are coming!

The floors look really good with the Barley.
