We are going to replace the floors with something reddish and also replace the counters with something in the gun-metal grey area, and the sink with something blackish. However, that being said. We had to diffuse all that white somehow.
So I added a 16x16 sunroom & took down the wall
Slated to be finished in 2010 - hopefully
The cabinet on the left side of the counter is gone
The cabinets on the left above the stove will be removed
That (tiled) wall will be taken down too
The new counter & cabinet will be installe dmore to the right
So there will be a big opening on the left to the sunroom
We got some cabinets. Putting together cabinets is more satisifying than scrapping popcorn or tape and float.
There is a long story with the Ikea experience. We are excited to have some cabinets for the first time since Oct. 2008. If the rest of the cabinets and stove range would get here, we can make the 10 hour drive to get the stuff and finish our kitchen. Guess we should have gone with cabinets that they had in stock - Adele Brown instead of the Solar Beech.
We'll post more pictures when it's done. We've gotta run some base board.
Haven't done much to the kitchen yet. I'm not exactly sure when it was remodeled, but it's got Corian countertops with an integrated sink, nice view from the sink window out over the mountains.
The only thing I've really done is to replace the electric glass top stove with a nice antique gas stove (I prefer to cook with gas). I purchased it from somebody local who was going to put it into their home, but thought it wouldn't be safe with kids around. I refinished all the porcelain parts (grilles, drip pans) and had the griddle coated with teflon (better cooking surface than the original chrome)
We have discussed remodeling the kitchen, but are waiting until all other projects are done (bath, paint, stairs, etc.). Then we can think about the kitchen...the stove stays
Here are some current pictures. The first is just after moving in with the old stove (me with the ladies) The second shows the work I had to do to get the new 40" stove in the space. I had to modify the drawers and cabinets to get it in. The last is of the new stove in place. '47 O'Keefe.
So I noticed that user dakuda edited my post and evidently removed the pictures. Not exactly sure why, but it was done just the same.
