Finished Traditional Cream Kitchen
I found this forum after most of our decisions were made, so I post my finished kitchen with some trepidation! Some of our choices may put it in the "quirky" catagory, but it's a good kitchen to cook in and fits the style of our home (1987 version of Victorian) and our personal style.
We didn't make many changes to the lay-out which we had lived with for three years and liked.
The mantle/hood is a replica of a mantle in the farmhouse my grandfather grew up in. We originally thought we'd use that mantle, but it was in too bad of shape (house has been empty for years). I want to decorate the shelf better so that there is something interesting to reflect in the mirror: we didn't want a pendant light over the island to block it since it is the focal point of the room.
We started with deconstruction on April 21, and finished on June 27.
I've enjoyed reading this forum as a border-line lurker: this is a good, generous community, and even those of us who do not post as often are enriched by the wealth of experience and expertise shared here. Peace to all. Amy
