Almost there!

Mostly kitchen pics this time because that is all there was left to finish!
We are hoping for a quick close tomorrow!

And now the moment you have all been waiting for.....

We are STILL waiting to hear about our close time
two days after we thought the deed would be done.
My nerves can't take much more of this--esp since
I am caught in box or to not box limbo--
I have all of our clothes set our on our bed,
ready to be put in a box, but I don't know if
we are moving yet so I keep contemplating about
whether or not I should just leave them(obviously
I am joking because at this rate it could
be another week at this point) or put everything
away, just to be put in a box hours, maybe days later---
Same with my bedding, I have cleaned all of our bedding
and I put it on just to take it back off again
for the move(which would mean another wash since they
will be going on the guest bed in the new space)

WHY?? do you ask are we in this waiting game hell?
Well, it all started back when we got approved for our
loan and our loan officer assured us that we would be
able to close--then surprise after surprise requirements
kept coming in from the underwriter until NOW--3 days past
when we were scheduled to close--The property is a condo
and apparently is a special case so now it has nothing to
do with us and everything to do with the property(would have
been helpful to know before we did 3 weeks of remodel, but hey:
it's only $$ right?)

Anyway, Doug is going out of town Monday so if we don't close today
or tomorrow we are out of luck until he gets back in a few weeks.

More progress but still a lot of dust!

So we are counting down the days and it is going to be tight! We hope to be closing by the 27th or 28th--just in time for Doug to go to Vegas for a week :(
Everything is looking good but there is still a lot of work to be done!
We will need to knock on wood, cross our fingers and all that jazz in order to make
things happen on time--I'll be sure to post pics of the final
For those that are interested these are the things we are changing/have changed:
-Painted ceilings white(a hard choice but the best one)
-Painted all doors black--again hard one but looks great!
-Changing countertops from butcher block to Bella marble and marble backsplash:

-Painted cabinets white
-adding these pulls to kitchen:

-painted gray color in kitchen:

-adding farm sink to kitchen

and a few little things here and there
Thanks to our amazing designer Heather for
making our place amazing thus far!

stay tuned!
