Brickton's Finished Kitchen
We started our house in the fall of 2011 and moved in at the end of October 2012. Through out the design and build of the house I made use of gardenweb like nobody's business. Since then I've fallen off but I did want to come back to post finished pictures and to thank everyone who helped. Countless people answered questions, provided sources, gave tips and feedback and generally rocked my socks with their helpfulness.
Some older shots with at least decent lighting:
The kitchen was nearly finished when we moved in, but we finally got the soapstone windowsill in a few weeks ago and then the last window trimmed. For months it didn't bother us that it wasn't finished, we were just so glad that we had a house and huge beautiful kitchen. And then we were done with the exposed sheetrock edge and 2x4 window sill, so thankfully we were able to get the sill in and the last bit of trim done.
Here is the sill and it's backstory
And with the finished window trim (which you can barely see because of the lighting .. meh)
These shots are at night, but with 4 kids it's tough to find a time during the day where the kitchen looks anywhere near this orderly. I'm trying to mix in some earlier shots that show the colors a little better. The color is definitely true-er in the first photo.
Here are most of the details that I can think of. If I miss anything let me know, I'd be happy to help others to pay forward all the good advice and help we received. There are also more details here.
Cabinets: Custom from Olde Saratoga Millwork painted in pure white (actually their primer base color + finish coat) instead of a colored white. The green was color matched to Benjamin Moore fernwood green. It's spring enough without being too bright and intense.
Knobs: Wooden knobs from eBay spray painted Oiled
Rubbed Bronze (no finish... and it shows after 1 year)
Cup pulls and pantry handle ... I have no idea but could probably look it up if anyone cares.
Cabinet over peninsula: Antique found in a barn on my parent's property
Corbels: Stock from Home Depot
Cafe Curtains: Something my wife made
Sink: 32" half divided farmhouse sink from Alfi bought online through Blue Bath on eBay
Faucet: Moen Lindely Faucet bought on eBay
Stools: Ikea Henriksdal stools that DESPERATELY need new slipcovers. We wash the covers constantly due to our kids, and they come out very clean, but are starting to tear. At $10 a pop though, we don't mind replacing them every year for a while.
Peninsula Light: Gallery track lights from PB off eBay
Pendant Light: PB Calhoun Pendant with plastic replacement globe considering the glass one didn't even make it through my installation and PB would not let me buy just a replacement globe.
Beam Lights: World Imports Essen Dark Sky 6" sconces
Under cabinet: LED lights from LEDWholesalers on Amazon
Soapstone is from Dave Brushett of Central New England Soapstone and it's great.
Butcherblock is 42" x 84" minerva wood from Perfect Plank, bought online and shipped. I trimmed it to length, sanded the edges and oiled it.
Beams were bought from Virtual Timbers and finished on site in Minwax Provincial, no poly. They are fake box beams (real wood, but not solid), and we love them. I think they are the hand hewn finish.
Floors are rustice white oak wide plank in 5" - 8" (I think) wide planks finished with Minwax Provincial and Waterlox.
