I'm calling it "FINISHED."

Posted Oct 31st, 07 at 11:59 am by ERock (ERock's Blog)

OK, I just decided to do it -- I'm going to post my "finished" kitchen even though it still has no undercabinet lights, new window shade, rug, etc. That's okay.

It's all ordered, Mom!

Posted Jun 11th, 07 at 8:45 pm by ERock (ERock's Blog)

I wasn't going to write about putting in our order because I thought, well, who but my mom, for example, would want to read about this? But I read about other people's orders, and maybe someone gearing up for theirs would want to read this too.
