    Me too!

    The house is clean tonight so I figured I'd better swoop down with my camera and tripod and take some "after" shots. Just so you guys believe I've actually been doing something

    Of course, I waited until dusk to get that cool blue effect from the outdoor light...

    Anyway, here's some before and afters. First, the kitchen.

    Pictures really do no justice to the difference.

    1) Eat-in area Before (some demo done)
    2) Eat-in area After (just a few trim panels left to install)
    3) Kitchen area Before
    4) Kitchen area After
    5) Kitchen as seen from custom arch in office

    Re: Me too!

    With that much work done I can see how the photography time could take a real beating. You did a fantastic job. The project looks great. That kitchen looks like something out of Architectural Digest.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Me too!

    Can you come and do that to my kitchen next Rick?
    Our new house has a poorly designed kitchen and we want to redo it.
    Please?

    Good stuff, you do great work!

    Thanks, Nat. I don't know the particular name of this travertine. It was on sale at the local discount supply warehouse. And these are def going in the portfolio!

    Re: Me too!

    Thanks, Lar. It's been a real task, that's for sure. There's a local magazine called "Phoenix Home and Garden" that some people think the kitchen should be in. Similar to "Better Homes..." Luckily, they didn't get close enough to my handiwork to see all the flaws

    Thanks, Steve

    I don't care for those lights myself, but the boss wanted them. We call it "Disco Denver" for the star light fixtures next to the rustic-looking faux stone columns
