An almost finished kitchen

This past weekend Matt installed the backsplash in our kitchen.
We are just about finished remodeling it.
YAY!
I am really loving my kitchen.
I love to entertain, and do it frequently, and am finding this a great kitchen in which to do that.
I figured now is as good of time as any to FINALLY post some pictures of it :)

A little re-cap of what we did:
-New tile floors
-New granite countertops
-New sink and faucet
-Got rid of the flourescent lights, built a soffett in their place, and put can lights in the celing.
-Moved the range to the other side of the kitchen
-Installed the microwave above the oven/range and had cabinets retrofitted to fit the new cooking space
-Took out the trash compactor and had a pull out cabinet for our trashcans installed
-New appliances

I'll post before and after pics so you can see the transformation.
I tried to capture similar angles so you could really see the difference.
I know you are all dying to see our (Matt's) hard work...

Before

After!  

Another Before shot
... and after.... TA DA!
 Before

 And "after", from a different angle...

And some more "after" shots of our new space...

Now, we still have to:
-Finish the soffett and install the crown molding
-Paint the kitchen
-Install the under cabinet lighting we purchased
.... then we'll be FINISHED!
