Kitchen Renovation: The Reveal!!

Well, everything is finally put back together and the curtain rods came in, so Hubby hung the curtains today. The only thing we don't have yet is stools for the island. But that could be awhile, so I went ahead and took pictures tonight. So without further ado, here it is! We love it!!!
