Finally, we are finished –mostly. Have some touching up to do, but these will likely not be apparent in the photos. We will probably change out the light fixture over the eating peninsula (that is a bit too large) for a smaller single light pendant. The cabinets are cherry with a ‘frost’ finish that is not quite a white wash. I’m told they will darken a bit with age.
Before and After
Before and After
Plate display cabinet covers the vent above the microhood.
Decorative plate rack cabinet covers the hood vent.
Spindle and spoke shelf over the window to display my collection of tea pots. The style came from the barn red plate rack that is on the wall next to the pantry door that has a spindle rail on it. The pantry door is also painted the same barn red. Are you sensing a theme here? LOL
Close up of back splash.
Plate rack and spice cubbies. A direct copy from the last kitchen –I liked it so much I did it again.
This is clearly a galley kitchen. This is the sink side. There’s just the two of us most of the time and we enjoy intimate meals at the peninsula. The dishwasher is a Bosch. It is so quiet you have to try to hear it when it’s running! It has a red light that shows on the floor to let you know. There is a third rack on top for silverware that allows for removal of the silverware rack on the bottom to gain extra space. The sink is Vigo. Just purchased a rack (you can’t see here) for the bottom to drain stuff and keep the bottom from getting scratched so easily. The faucet is Delta Touch 2 O. I’m spoiled now –wouldn’t have any other kind. The cabinets are cherry with a beadboard door style made by DeWils.
The range side of the galley. Loving the LG gas double oven range. There’s nothing I can’t cook on this thing. It contains the double ovens and all of the multiple BTU high-powered burners I had in my last kitchen that were in separate appliances and much more costly. This is a real space and money saver. Plus it’s easier to clean! The microhood is also wonderful. It has a vent that extends in the bottom to gain more coverage over the burners.
