Do you remember the before? The other half of our galley style kitchen with the old lower cabinets that we decided to keep and refurbish a bit.
Here's the after! Here's what we did..
Painted the cupboard a deep greenish brown,
Dave built a new countertop from plywood and together we put new ceramic tile on the surface. ( yes we're still married LOL!)
Added new hardware pulls and handles to the drawers and doors.
We kept the old soffit and had new recessed lighting installed.
Then... the part that really made a huge impact ( and was my idea... we have been going back and forth through out this remodel on whose idea everthing was... I know...we need to get a life..LOL!), the wall behind the cupboard Dave covered in 5" tongue and groove pine boards and painted them white.
Then we had our electrician install a couple of new outlets and a switch to turn the recessed lighting on and it's almost done.
There's still some fussy trim work on the corner edge.
Now.. I've been thinking about how to decorate that nice white wall.... an empty slate for now.
It's always good to live with it that way for awhile.
I have enough "stuff" around here that I could hang there and have thought about a shelf, but for some reason I am thinking something new and different. It hasn't come to me yet.
Any suggestions.... ideas... out there??
Then we moved ( with the help of some friends) the big old solid oak cupboard that was in the studio filled with wool into the kitchen! Man that thing is heavy!
Now the microwave sits in that little cubby instead of taking up valuable counter space. In a small galley kitchen, counter space is always an issue.
But that microwave kind of bugs me now. It looks so white and big!! Maybe I should look around for a smaller one in black and stainless. Eventually I want to replace our fridge with a stainless steel one too.
At least everything works! I am happy that I can cook and most importantly dye wool!!
All in time is my constant mantra!
I'm still pinching myself that I have a wonderful new kitchen!
Summer is going fast isn't it?!!
The rains have made the weeds grow... well like weeds!! LOL!! And you know what? I'm just letting them grow this year!!
Maybe a little weed soup is in order!
