So… that’s our new kitchen faucet. I think it’s the most badass faucet I’ve ever seen. Ridiculous? Oh, hell yes.

The kitchen’s coming along quite nicely. It’s actually so far along that it’s doubly frustrating that we can’t just move all the appliances in and start using it. But, there are things still to be done.

We’re picking up the tile for the backsplash tomorrow, then Monday, they’re supposedly gonna start tiling the backsplash, moving in the rest of the appliances, and finishing up the granite – the sink still needs a pretty serious cutout. Then, they sand the drywall (I have NO IDEA why this step comes so late in the process). Supposedly, they’re gonna be done by Wednesday, which is just astonishing to me.

The stuff that’s in is gorgeous. The cabinets look great. We’d picked out four samples of granite from Granite Expo, went to a couple other places, and saw that most places have exactly the same types of things. We fell in love with a honed black granite (matte finish), but the only way to get it was through a specialty store, and the cost difference was almost $3K, so we passed. Ended up going with a style of granite that we *didn’t* have a sample for – a little risky, ’cause we hadn’t seen it in the kitchen light – “Black Pearl,” I think it’s called – and it’s *awesome*.

We’re getting a mix of green clear glass subway tiles for the backsplash, which we’re picking up tomorrow morning. Ended up getting a pretty good deal for the tiles. Then we need hardware from IKEA for the cabinet handles, and we’re good to go. This feels insane – like there’s no way it could actually be happening. We’d been talking about redoing the kitchen for years, but I thought it would be still longer until we actually did it.

If things actually do finish up reasonably, and nothing untoward happens in the next few days, I hope I’ll be able to write a really glowing review of this guy – ’till then, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
