Christmas was good to me ;P
In the end, we got the bottom cabinets installed (we'll take care of everything else on Sunday). So here's a look at what we've got so far:
Also, we got the sconce replaced, which I forgot to take before pictures of, but trust me, this one is better (and matches our other new lighting fixtures that I'll share another time).
Once the cabinets were installed, I took an interesting trip to Lowe's with a friend who has been helping us out a TON, which I'll share more details on another time. But, after our trip we were able to get the trim up on the recessed cans, which makes a huge difference.
