Under Cabinet Lights & Crown Molding

I've been busy lately working on the house and haven't taken the camera out much. It was late and the light wasn't good but the 'rents have been asking for pictures, so pictures they get. It bugs me to take pictures with poor light, so I'll have to do a proper house photoshoot when the space is totally complete.

The bathroom is turning out well. It looked even better before I took a circular saw to the wall to cut a channel to run more electrical for some vanity lights, but I won't show you that. :)

And here is where the magic happens. Notice the lovely crown molding. I also decided not to throw a cabinet over the toilet or shelves next to it (yet).

Mom has been asking for a picture that shows the backsplash and the green wall. Throw in the new under cabinet lights and the crown molding and the kitchen is looking very nice...

I had the contractor wire upper and lower cabinet lights, but to save money I said I'd install the lights. For now I am just putting under the cabinet lights, and the jury is still out on uppers. After finishing the hook-up at midnight last night I turned on the lights in the bar and swooned for a while.

The foyer electrical still need to be fixed. All is well except figuring out how to get the ceiling fan on a switch. There are so many wires running through the area that the trouble shooting is taking a bit. The knee wall isn't drywalled yet as hauling materials like drywall and plywood in a maxima doesn't work so well.

Also, the table from Arhaus is on order and will be ours in a couple weeks, but the chairs were out of our price range. The craigslist hunt for chairs is on.

WOW! It's unrecognizable. I can't wait to see it in person.

OMG! The kitchen looks fabulous. You must have had a very good kitchen designer(s) because everything looks beautiful. I would have never recognized it even tho I saw the "before" in person.

A kitchen is the nerve center and meeting place of a home. Most kitchens are not well lighted for the cooking and food preparation. Cabinets can cast shadows on the counter tops making cooking more difficult during times of low light. Under Cabinet Lighting is a great way to brighten up any kitchen. Installing under cabinet lighting in your kitchen is one of the smartest remodeling projects you can take on.
