Laurat88 -- question about your cabinets, please

Hi Laurat88, in another thread you posted that your cabinets are rift cut oak "with a custom stain of walnut/black/grey wash." Could you post photos please, or point me to another thread that already has photos?

We are planning for rift cut oak built-ins in our bedroom, and I would love to see pictures of your cabinets. We need to choose a stain color, and I want something that is grey, but with brown tones too.

Laurat88, I too would like to see your cabinets. Rift cut oak is gorgeous and tentatively what I want in my new kitchen.

kaysd - I've been waiting very (im)patiently for your kitchen reveal. Can you give us an idea of when that might be??? I cannot wait to see your finished kitchen!

RE: Laurat88 -- question about your cabinets, please

Sorry - Just saw this!

Here are some pictures.

Yes, it is rift oak with a walnut base stain and a grey/black wash. The cabinet finisher was like a cook mixing a little of this and a little of that. He gave me a few choices and I liked this the best. Will do a full reveal shortly. Painters are here today doing final touch up so we can move in tomorrow. Woohoo!!

We have rift oak in the bathroom too, but with a lighter stain.

Laurat88, your kitchen is beautiful! I especially love the cabinets and the windows flanking the range hood.

Is that the Tech Lighting Kable Lite system? Does it provide good light? We are thinking of using that in our living room since we cannot have recessed lights.

Laura kitchen looks stunning!!! I would really like to know the name of those cabinet pulls. I am still without and really love yours.

ck_squared, DH and I can't wait to see the finished kitchen either! We have been dealing with some serious health and financial issues for both of my parents the last 3 months, so the remodel has been a low priority.

Kitchen still needs: hood, backsplash, appliance toe kicks, steam oven installion, French door stained or painted, Solyx film to obscure contents of pantry cabinets, finish light and outlet installation, painting touch ups and barstools. (At least the kitchen is close, the bathroom is still a gutted space.) I would post "nearly done" photos, but the paperwork for my parents' insurance claims and VA benefits is spread all over the island right now.
