We are still working on our stove/fridge wall, we need to finish tiling and trimming out the remaining cabinets on that wall. That is our shortest wall with 2 small 15 inch base cabinets flanking the stove and the fridge. We also haven't replaced our overhead light fixture yet, I won't spend over $40 including tax, we just need to wait until I can squeeze those into our budget. The budget above includes the cost of these remaining items...I just couldn't wait to show you!!
