Great job Jennifer! One suggestion to help the cabinet underneath the electrical panel feel more cohesive is to have your contractor bring the quarter round around the cabinet, and maybe switch the door to open the other way? Fabulous job!!!

I love my grundtal rails and shelf. I don't have a photo handy of the rails but I have two stacked one above the other and I store my paper towels, pot holders, a hanging utensil crock and about 8 pans on them. I've had this setup in my rental kitchen for about 6 years, can't see going back to pans in cabinets!

I love the first two rows of kitchens. Practical and/or beautiful. I have rails with pots/pans and shelves for storing dutch ovens/stockpots. I haven't had a problem with dust/grease because they are used so often. Use shelves for things you use often since you want those things easily accessible.

Genius Solution for Messy Pot Lid Storage: Hang Pot Lids On a Magnetic Knife Rack!

I use a ikea slotted shelf (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00011428/) to store my lids standing up, works great. My pots hang from two grundtal rails with hooks on the wall to the right of the shelf.

Breville Espresso EVERY MORNING. I have a routine: wake up, turn on machine, fix kids' breakfast and help them eat (toddlers), then when they are all done and ready to start playing I make a delicious caramel latte. I haven't been able to kick the habit since we got the machine. The mini Keurig we received for Christmas last year looks lonely next door to the Breville, it hasn't been used in months. We do keep it around though for my mom and MIL, they don't like to make/drink espresso.

My favorite kitchen gadget is the Zyliss pizza wheel. I use it to cut and slice everything, pizza, brownies, bars, quesadillas, dough, and I'm sure a bunch of others things. I like to think of it as a bench scraper that rolls, you get the benefit of downward pressure that regular pizza cutters don't have.

@ELARHY, If it is an open bar, tips are appreciated, not necessary. The wedding hosts have provided drinks to you and either have a tip for the bartender worked into their bill, or will provide it separately to the bartender. That said, a wedding host tip is usually about 10%, so if the bartender is good I personally would throw in a buck a drink. If it is an open bar tips are definitely required. The venue is not going to be paying the bartender anything other than normal wages. If you were hosting a wedding that had an open bar, I would ask the venue for a run-up of their service and tip the bartender 10% of their sales, mostly because people don't think about tipping when they come to a wedding.

I live in South Florida. We get a couple months of nice weather where you can open the windows and let your house breathe. Other than that you get a few cold days(below 60 degrees it cold here) where its too cold to open up the house, but at least the AC isn't running. Or you can open the windows for a few hours during a nice summer rain shower to help cool the house down and get in the fresh air. Other than that it is 90-99 degrees and 50+% humidity, and that is no fun inside without AC.

@TEAGIRL, it looks like a custom-painted wood deck, on the left side of the deck you can see the slats where there is some board separation. Looks like stencil work.
