A sneak preview!

Our good friends Keith and Dorothy, who we spent 3 fantastic days with in France read my blog ("Helloooooooo Keith & Dozza!") and are coming over in a month's time - when they do, the kitchen will be finished - so this is the only preview I will show - as i want them to have a surprise.
We are both thrilled with the progress - thanks to good friends Spud and Tony who are fitting the kitchen. Jon is very busy with work so can't do a great deal - having reliable capable friends is a god send. The plasterer and builder are good friends too - again so reliable and efficient this has all helped everything so smoothly. Yes we have a delay but that was doen to Homebase - basically the sink arrives on 29th September with a corner unit.
I can live with this - I don't have a sink right now, but this is something Jon can sort out - when he isn't busy. We have an outside tap just by the kitchen door which I am using - and the dishwasher is still here.
Deciding on colours.......Farrow & ball's 'Dead Salmon' hmmmmmmmmm????

Watch this space!


  1. SO shiny! and I confess to zooming in on the picture to work out what is reflected in the door [milk bottle etc on the table] Must stop watching CSI, and their relentless searches for 'evidence'

    looking forward to the final revelations
    Hope you get inside water before it gets too cold outside.

  2. It's looking good, Denise. Love the cupboard with the lights in, and that shine ... Oh Wow!

  3. It certainly looks very sleek and shiny!
    If you like the colour of bare plaster, you will love dead salmon, we had that 2 houses ago and it was a lovely warm colour.

  4. With such a swishy kitchen you'll have to start charging visitors!
    It's gorgeous. Do you just look at it and sigh?

  5. Looks good so far Denise - I await the finished results.

  6. That is quite a difference! Love the lighting inside the cupboards.

  7. So sleek..... I was looking at the reflection & saw a washing machine!
    It will all be wonderfully clean and antiseptic looking when it is finished & will put me to shame!
