We're actually on track to finish up this kitchen renovation with a couple of days to spare because we had an insanely productive week last week. The soffits got finished (with a shaker-style panel to match the cabinet doors), the island countertop was installed and sealed, we picked hardware, and the cabinets got repainted. I'll be saving the final color selection for the reveal (I've got to keep something secret ;) ), but if you follow us on Instagram than you already know it was a hard choice. I was back and forth to Lowes and a nearby hardware store multiple times, grabbing samples, trying them, and then grabbing some more. In the end, I'm confident we made the perfect moody color choice, but you can be the judge of that next week. Here are the colors we tried:

The existing cabinet color is Behr Boreal. I liked the color a lot more in the darker, moodier stormy light we had on the day I took these photos, but it still read a bit retro for what we wanted. The samples we tried (from left in the picture above) were SW rock bottom, SW retreat, and SW Jasper. And not pictured, we tried our g0-to black, BM Onyx. Can't wait to share what we picked.

Garrett paneled the soffits to match the shaker-style cabinet doors. I love how 'built-in' they make this wall of cabinetry feel, or at least it will feel once it's all painted in the cabinet color.

That's all for this week. Check out all the featured and guest participants here.
