I know, I keep griping about this weather we've been having, and I know complaining won't change it......but this is just CRAAAAAAAAAZY! I mean WA is having a flippin heat wave and before that they had a 30 day DRY SPELL....and we're getting low 70's (some days we've not even been lucky enough to hit that) and RAIN-RAIN-RAIN....It's like I've moved back to Seattle!!
We still aren't finished, but we are just wiped out and totally exhausted. We are at the point where it's mostly "cosmetic" finish work now...Crown molding on the wall cabinets, base trim and window trim...new dining room doors and trim....and little knit picky stuff, like painting the recessed light covers, painting the chairs (black)...building the pantry units...we still have the old frig sitting in here, haven't gotten that moved yet, and I have to use my old tall wall cabinet for a make-do pantry for now...so that end of the kitchen won't be photographed and shown yet!!
I love how the chimney turned out...I'm thinkin I mighta been a bricklayer in my past life! ;)
I see in this issue of CS, Linda Harris...has these same faucets in her BEAUTIFUL kitchen!
(they look like mine anyways, from what I can tell in the photo)
Its hard to find black faucets....really hard!
Her home is Spectacular BTW, didn't ya just love it??!!
Pineapples, big ones, little ones (even one in the cabinet).... I love pineapples ;)
I can't wait to get some shelves above the windows,
The door ya see in the pic above, that's the basement door, it will be "aged" when I get around to it.
this is just a small breakfast bar, off the cook top area, just the right size for me and Steve to grab a quick bite, rather than eat in the dining room...we just eat here when it's only us two here.
these actually came on a chain, we took the chain off and added a drop instead, with the fan there, I didn't want it the light to move...I think it looks great, and I'll bet no one will even notice that we made that change, the matching light above the island still has the chain...as does the light above the sink.
I don't know if you can see it very well, but the frig cabinet has the crown up already
on the other side of the doorway you see, is the other end of my kitchen, where my double pantry will be and there is also another window.
Sink base juts out and has "legs" I will try to get a better pic of that later. we ordered the regular/standard sink base, and made it this way ourselves...just built it out from the wall and purchased one "leg" and cut it length wise and added build outs to it...It turned out awesome! SAVES A LOTA $$ doin it this way too.
I really didn't get good pics of the cabinets. Sorry...
these prim pears and napkins and star-rings were a gift from Debbie at
she also sent me two little plates I have on my window sill one says Dream and other says Faith
thanks, Deb I love 'em!
Wall oven unit and Frig unit go all the way to the ceiling...I wanted height and depth...so I figured my cabinets at different heights and different depths.
big deep sills, plenty of room to hold a large crock, love that!
I went with the wall mount fan, rather than a ceiling fan...I am so happy with it!
mom got me the crock that my rolling pins are in, thanks mom, love it!! the bowl and spoon in the second shelf down, are a re-do...I will post pics of that in and some other re-dos I've done in another post!
Oh...that sounded too EASY............believe me...it wasn't!!
