Project Kitchen Gorgeous – It’s Almost Done!!!!

Project Kitchen Gorgeous – It’s Almost Done!!!!

Goodmorning lovebugs.
I’m waking up in my own bed this morning after being away for two weeks and what’s better, I’m waking up to an almost completed/glorious kitchen downstairs.
I walked in yesterday to see the marble done and the place styled to within an inch of it’s life…my jaw dropped, I stood paralyzed and I just stared at the beauty…for like 30 minutes…then I had to yank myself away and head to the doctor…turns out I have the mac daddy of ear infections, which is PS, the most painful shitballs experience (aside for childbirth) I’ve ever experienced…imagine this kind of thing….
{via here}
only instead of stabbing your foot, it’s your inner ear…so not cool…it’s given me a new appreciation for when my kids are going through the same and the next time a doctor tells me that they can fight it off on their own, I might punch them in the face…this shit feels like hot pokers…I’m like the biggest no antibiotics ring leader ever but I think I’m putting ear infections in a separate category…there are times when you just NEED drugs and this my friends is one of them!! 
Anyhoo…the point of that banter…the only thing on god’s green earth that could pull me away from my new divine kitchen at that point was world war three in my ear…after arriving back home (and that was apres a 3 hour walk-in clinic stint) I continued to stare and obsess over every inch of it.
I think I took 152 pictures…or so.
And let me just say, it’s pretty…really really pretty.
Meredith is a styling genius and managed to arrange my little trinkets in a way that perfectly reflects me…

And on top of the zhush pretty, is the bones of the place…I seriously die a little death everytime I see the marble, the antique mirror, the crystal…it’s all just so feminine and lovely.
Sadly, we aren’t able to post the final reveal just yet…in case I haven’t spelled it out, we’re really hoping to have this kitchen glory published, which means photos have to be kept to a minimum at this point.
I know you’ve all been waiting and I feel like a total….

for not being able to share but so it is…
All I can say is that if you live anywhere close to Toronto…my door is open…a few tweeter peeps last night came up with the brilliant idea of a house tour party….I’d LOVE to be your #PKG…
{via here}
with no food and clear booze…marble considerations of course- don’t you find it hilarious that I have a kitchen that I’m considering banning food from- ha!
Any takers?
Oh and make sure you check out Sashay today…Meredith has also posted a few little peeks at the pretty.

    When we first moved into our new home I was SO worried about the white marble counters & backsplash, but honestly, it is not as bad as I thought. My biggest tip is keep citrus far far away, I had a lime etch its shape into a sample I had…better the sample then my counters!

    So excited to for you to love a place so much…can’t wait to see more!!

    I want to come! It looks amazing, I can’t wait till the big reveal. Also, you are going to have to let me know how your marble countertops go. It is on my list of must haves in my dream home, although I am a little nervous about the staining.

    Sorry about the ear infection, they can me a killer.

    As for #PKG, not impressed that we have to wait. But I did see some tweeting going on with a particular magazine editor and that would be freaking awesome for you! {No, I am not stalking you…..}
