Orc: Week Two

We hit the ground running this week! 

This was the scurrying, gathering and trying to decide week. 

We went to the stone yard and selected our granite for the island we are building. 
Something grey, taupe, white and with lots of veining please. 

Next up we grabbed our vent hood, and ordered fabric samples. I am all over the place with fabric so stay tuned. 
 Either the greens or maybe this:
I have measured, know my yardage, and have cut my template for cushions. 
Need to gather zippers and gasp the tacky and dreaded clear vinyl. The kids only sit in 2 chairs so a removable sleeve will be used so I can still have pretty cushions. 

Green leather seemed over the top and this room Needs softness and color. 

After grabbing the venthood I grabbed all my painting supplies and read and read and read some more, quadruple checking I have everything needed to get to work! 

We got busy on the backsplash and I am happy to report that is fully DONE!! Feels good to have one of the major things checked off the list. 

Next week we: 
prime all cabinets
Hang cabinet over the fridge
Determine which fabric 
Select which Oushak we will use for in front of the sink
Pick out wood from trim
Start building island
Refinish kitchen table

Nothing like pedal to the medal!! 

And remember that money pit comment? 

This weeks excitement was the washing machine going out. We bought that sucker in no time flat. Nothing fancy, just need something to wash. Seriously Lowe's fastest washer sale ever. In and out with 3 kids in tow within 20 min. 

Then a cabinet broke, oh well. Will get that repaired over the weekend!! 

Now time to scoot so I can check out y'all's awesome progress!!! So inspired by all your work!

Love that you chose granite. I know everyone loves marble but its just not that practical. Also love your green fabrics. Green has been a favorite for me lately.

I thought that was marble. It's stunning. I'm sorry about your washer. It really never ends. Good luck this week.

Okay, now I'm feeling really outshined - you did tons of work and all I did was paint a room! :) Great job! ...and you can't go wrong with any of the fabric you've chosen - love them all! Shelia

Your fabric samples look great. It's hard to decide which one I like best.
