Kitchen progress pics (a 'little Redroze' kitchen!)
As some of you know, I fell desperately in love with Redroze's kitchen a few months ago. I am attempting to do a mini version of her kitchen, with some tweaks:
-we went with w/golden oak floors, to match the rest of our main floor, too lazy to refinish existing floors :)
-our cabinets were built from a 'soft maple'- great for painting, not staining. So our island is a painted dark brown, not stained.
-our cabinet maker could not replicate all of the lovely detail on her cabinet's faceframe, he didn't have the right tools.
I am sure there are other things, but I just want to say a big THANK YOU to Redroze, your taste is exquisite!
Here's the before:
And here's the "in progress":
And the cabinets are delivered- hurray!
My wall pantry...love love love...
pardon the lighting...the cabinets are white (Benjamin moore Chantilly Lace of course!)
And an idea from my gardenweb friends- a pullout cabinet, with the top drawer separate- so you can easily access items...
Also went with a 90 degree right turn on the corner- my old cabinets had a 45 degree turn and it always felt like it was 'in my face' ;)
More to come, i'll keep y'all posted!
