Orc: Week 3 Kitchen Laziness

Ever had one of those weeks where you were on the hamster wheel and thought for sure it was a cross country race?
That was this past week.
If y'all want to click back through to Week 1, or Week 2, click the highlighted text!
Fabric still hasn't arrived, one of my kids broke a cabinet, the vent hood came in and its hard wire not plug in.
Just simple issues no longer simple.
We DID however drive to Mobile to pick out a different slab of granite from a good friend of ours.
I got excited thinking maybe... he could hook us up with stone in a couple minutes but DUH the whole logistics of moving the stone has to happen before it can be fabricated.
So lets drool until we can pick it up either early November or over Thanksgiving.
Again. forget about the time and drool.... think about how these splotches in the slab look like Jadeite.
In other news we de-glossed and got to business on the cabinets. The "island" part of the cabinets are primed, then the fumes got to me and I had to switch gears.
BUT we have progress!!!
And.. my incredibly sweet mother in law had this fabric at her house she wasn't going to use so toying with the idea of totally switching gears with fabric and doing this!
Basically need my swatches to show up and figure out what will coordinate.
so bam. Week 3 in the books. I have some MAJOR ground to cover this next week so pray for these paint fumes and nice days so we can air out with windows open!!
and for those wanting a better view of the tile here is a quick one I snapped of that!
Really pleased with the results.
Head on over to Calling it Home to see the other linking participants progress!

Left to do: 
Paint cabinets
Purchase ceiling fan and install
Install pot lights
Install vent hood
Build island
Make draperys 
Make cushions for chairs
Install outlet extenders for electrical
