Stained Wood Craftsman Kitchen 98% Done
Well, I keep posting this entry wrong. Sorry for my inexperience, but I didn't realize the gallery was separate from the other forum! I'd delete the other posting if I could figure out how! I've been lurking on this site for months, but just this week signed up so I could post. Thanks so much to all the folks who contributed ideas/feedback about products we considered in our remodel.
We demo'd our previous kitchen in March to the beams and our new kitchen is finally done. I will confess up front, we spent a stupid amount of money on this project. I don't even know how much exactly, as we also did a lot of building envelope work at the same time (blown-in insulation, new windows, new siding, painted exterior, upgraded electrical & plumbing).
Our goals were to put in a kitchen that matched the character of the woodwork in the rest of our 1912 Craftsman home. While we used modern appliances, we encased them in wood panels whenever possible. We put in soapstone counters and sink and reproduction lighting.
We still have to make the leaded glass panels for this one cabinet.We LOVE the soapstone counters!
