Basement Kitchen Install

Back in May of this year, Tom and I decided we wanted to spruce up the basement.  It really needed some hlep...we had my couch I bought right after college and it's coordinating chair, along with a tv and our office furniture in a fairly large walkout basement family room.  It was a mish-mash of old stuff that we have accumulated and used over the past 9 years.

We first decided to have the concrete floors stained.  A crew came and ripped up the carpet, scored the floors to look like tile and stained them a caramal and dark brown combination.  Then we ordered some furniture, designed the kitchen and entertainment center, bought a tv and speakers, and prayed it would all come togther nicely one day. 

It is still a work in progress, but starting to take shape.  The floors are done, the entertainment center has been built and delivered, furniture is here (along with a new rug) and the speakers have been wired, installed and hooked up to a new tv.  It's a lot more fun down here now!

The kitchen cabinets were installed today.  Next step is to have black granite countertops installed.  We also need to put the drawer pulls and door knobs on and pick out a sink. 

The openings towards the top right corner are for an ice maker and a small refridgerator.  The top middle cabinet above (it's raised up about 6 inches) has four stem glass holders.  The cabinet opening underneath is for a micorwave.  To the left, in the corner, will be the undermount sink.

This is the raised up bar top...still needs some black granite going across. We will have 2 or 3 bar stools here.
 I'll post some other pictures of the floor and the rest of the room soon.  It needs a bit of a cleaning right now.
