Busy, Busy, Busy!

You may have heard "Man Proposes, God Disposes". At my house, it's Nita Proposes, DH Disposes. I thought we were going to complete the study next - foolish me! It's the kitchen instead. We've installed the new upper cabinets, but now have to scrape together the moola to order the lower cabinets. Then it'll be the new countertops. I feel so broke! The samples taped to the cabinet door are the countertop colors we're considering.
The foyer is to the right of this picture. We're planning a penisula coming out from that side of the wall, which will have the sink and dishwasher. You can just see the butler's pantry door to the right. The fan and fixture will be changed (our kitchen table used to sit under it). The range and microwave go beneath the shorter cabinet. We decided on the taller cabinets, because the space above the old cabinets just collected dust, and we can use the extra storage space. Doesn't matter how many cabinets I have, I always have plenty to fill them - lol! The fridge will be going about where the ladder is sitting. This layout will be much more efficient than the old one - but it can't be done soon enough to suit me! I'm taking the color scheme for the kitchen from a set of canisters, so it will be blue and yellow.
