In the meantime, I thought you might want a peak at my kitchen as it is now.
|Here is the 29" cooktop. It will be replaced along with the backsplash. The wallpaper border will be removed.|
|Looking into the breakfast room. We plan to reconfigure this peninsula.|
|Island looks a little out of place, but probably looked fine when the kitchen was all furnished. I'm going for a bigger one or maybe two islands! This is a big kitchen!|
Remember, we have to replace an entire household of furniture. We will buy a few quality pieces and fill in with second hand findings. So far, the only piece of furniture we have is a nice leather sectional from Ethan Allen. (Found in the clearance room, but brand new and more than half off!) Since we will not be moving into the house for about a year, I have time to search for just what I want.
Here is the one wall I didn't show above. It is a desk area. We plan on removing all of the cabinets and the pantry from this wall, lengthening it some, and using this as the "setting" for a nice 48" gas range, flanked by cabinets.
That's pretty much it for the kitchen. I'll give an update about removing that tile. Hopefully, it will not be a frustrated rant!
I LOVE making a house my own. What a blessing to have this opportunity. I can't wait to show you progress on the kitchen. (Actually, I can't wait to MAKE progress on the kitchen!)
I'm working on some ideas for some quilty artwork. Hopefully, I'll have something to show you soon.)
