Ahhhh…. the kitchen. The place to scramble eggs, gather with friends and enjoy homemade dinners.
Just kidding… it was disgusting. I’m sorry, but it was.
I KNOW! I KNOW! But you guys, sponge painting was TOTALLY COOL. I promise.
And then I finally painted the walls a gorgeous blue/green – Silver Sage. And all was well in the world.
Here’s a better shot of the floors after refinishing, and the doorway into the Dining Room, with no chance of a stubbed toe now.
Below, Ryan and his dad are working on installing the cabinets. They are nice shaker-style maple cabinets.
And here’s the island we added later. Gives us additional storage space and an area for two stools, which is handy. Ryan installed me some basic shelves about the windows for display.
So, for an 8×13 kitchen, I think we have a great deal of space (although I could always use more).
Finally, here is our little “mudroom” area. Ryan made the bench for shoes and it works pretty well.
