Our 'new' kitchen!
Hi everybody! I am joining the list of Small Homers with projects going on, and decided to start a thread. Things will likely move fairly slowly for this remodel, certainly compared to Idie2live's projects. But the excitement has started and I wanted to share with you. I am very interested in your comments and ideas, so please feel free to chime in with them.
In my previous thread, "Need you," I was asking for help deciding if two used kitchens could go together. You helped me to see it was a bad idea, and I did not get them. But I did get another kitchen from the same place - Green Demolitions. Here is a link to my kitchen on their site:
The cabinets arrived on Wednesday and I was there to receive them. They are 23 years old, but as solid as the day they were shipped (on August 25, 1987 for a family named Gordon in Weston Connecticut, I think). The color is not quite a white-wash, and I am not sure they are pickeled, either. I am interested in your guesses. There is some grease and grime, but mostly on the cabs near the cooktop, the garbage pull-out, and a bit on the pantry cabinet.
If you go to my picture site, you can also see our new Kitchenaid cooktop. We were not looking for an induction cooktop. I have been cruising Craigslist for the few appliances we will need. This cooktop appeared a few weeks ago at a scratch-and-dent store. They never said it was induction in the ad, I found out when I googled the model number. We thought about it for a few weeks and DH decided in the past few days that it was too good a deal to pass up. It is in the original box, with packing. An instruction book is missing (can get it off the web), but there is no damage to the appliance. It sells for $2400 on sale, MSRP IS $2800. We got it for $1200. It was quite an adventure!
