The floor is finished. We still need to get our fridge, stove and wood cookstove but the kitchen is mostly finished. A new window and ceiling goes in after the holidays as I just couldn't handle those right now. It still needs a few touches here and there but its 99% complete and I can get ready for next weekends big family Christmas weekend. I am so loving the marble top on the island and the old cabinet where the appliances sit. William got the cabinet at a machine shop auction several years ago for a dollar. It was filthy and covered in grease. Our handyman cleaned ,sanded, put on new hardware and then sanded the butcher board top. He put several coats of mineral oil and several coats of food safe poly. I am going to be doing lots of baking tomorrow and enjoying every minute!
