Latest Kitchen Installment ..
I started a new post, since the last one was so picture intensive. I'm linking part 1 below though.
First ... YAY .. My stove works! :) :)
Next .. we had a bit of a mishap. The antique door I had found on the side of the road and saved for my baking center, ended up getting thrown away by mistake. *slaps forhead* The little house was cleaned out and my DH got a little exuberant. So I had to come up with another idea .. one inexpensive hollow core door and a can of black board paint and some white trim later. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but it works right now.
This part is far from done yet .. but I will tell you my children are currently behind me making cookies. *LOL* So it is hooked up. It will stay open while in use and cooling, but my ovens a) were bought when I was going to use white appliances and b) I just didn't want to see the ovens because I thought they would kind of take away from the vintage stove .. I'm strange like that.
Next .. up, a fridge! YAY .. can it get any better :) The shelf needs to be moved down quite a bit yet. My cook books will sit up there.
From this side .. Again, I'm not sure how I feel about the door yet, I'm holding my opinion until after everything is painted. I will tell you I'm not thrilled with the hoosier cabinet there now ( it still isn't painted ). I was going to use that as my pantry, but I'm starting to re-think it.
Long shot where we stand right now .. Hood works now, it has A LOT of power .. first time we turned it on paper towels started rolling along the counter towards it. *LOL*
