Sun Room Shelf - need creative help!
Our kitchen is basically done (except fixing the stupid drawer adjusting the hanging lamp - aka chandelier - but just doesn't say chandelier)
As part of the reno - we stole 9 inches of the sun room to expand the cabinets so I could have my 36 inch cooktop.
The sun room is a cathedral ceiling and the kitchen is an 8 foot ceiling.
GC recommended building a shelf instead of closing it in - said it would make the room more "open" feeling.
The shelf is done - and he is right - the room would have looked smaller if it was a solid wall.
So...I have this 11 foot wide, 9 inch deep shelf. The wall peaks with the cathedral ceiling. I need to figure out what to do with it. It has LED tape lights near the front of the shelf, so lose about 1-2 front inches. We tried the lights front and rear - and definitely front.
I found this copper "washtub" at Williams Sonoma - it was pricey - but when I turn on the lights it just glows and looks brilliant (OK - I know copper will turn and might need to do some "contact sports" with it episodically)
Wall color is BM Coastal path
Trim color is Brookhaven Autumn Cherry with black glaze
What do you think? Also - what should I put in it?
If you like the tub - I might try to find a cheaper version but am also open to other ideas.
Here are some pictures.
