The Kitchen is done!

I am happy to report that the kitchen is done. Jim finished putting grout on the backsplash, installed the cabinet hardware and nailed in a few remaining pieces of trim.










































Yeah, we know that the fridge looks like the Tot has been here, but in the course of the next day or two we will get ahead of all the smudges on the stainless appliances. Dee and I will now spend the next few days moving st
uff back into the kitchen. We are trying to take a very Zen approach to the move of the plates and pots and utensils. We are going to have to let the chi move around a little as we slowly put things away. We have a brand new kitchen with a completely different fit, form and flow than our old kitchen. Life agrees with us.

When we had our Miele dishwasher put in back in the fall of 2005, the guy who installed it gave me some advice for the stainless steel. He told me to use a very light coat of WD-40 to clean & protect it.

Just an FYI.

To add to Michael's sage advice you should also never, ever, ever let a three year old within 5 feet of the stainless!

I must add, too, the coffee maker looks a bit lonely in the corner, but that dog looks darn good in the kitchen!!

Lisa & Michael,
Thanks for the advice! I wonder why WD-40. It is a highly flammable hydrocarbon...

In almost 22 years of wedded bliss, she has never made me a cobbler. I am still waiting... :-)
