Creating beautiful things… repurposing vintage & found items-transforming them & combining them to create beautiful new pieces. I knew I did not want to pull my cabinets off the wall and replace them. I also looked at old flooring, and cleaning it up. It had to much of a butcher block feel, and I didn’t really want to mimic small planks from my floor, on my counters. Our new pantry… two floor to ceiling sets of these… so far I love it more because I can finally see everything that was in my pantry.
I love a white kitchen…but I love a white kitchen with turquoise even more! With the timely addition of the new drill press, we’ll be in good position to finish up the first phase by next week. Oak was similar in price, but to reddish, and a very hard wood, which meas cutting and adhering would be tougher.
We cut down the peninsula so that it’s counter height and at one level which is a huge improvement, the counter is now one level surface. L didn’t want a white island as I know from experience the island gets pretty beat up from the children sitting at the counters and just general wear and tear for being in the center of the kitchen.
We himed and hawed about what tile to use and decided to go with 18in square. That’s only what she got together with the dark shoji-style cabinets and custom round butcher block table on casters. It was the pattern we liked most and decided it was a big enough room that the larger tiles would look good.
Your taste and dedication to working with Best-in-Class people comes through in your result. I tapped a dozen little maple wedges in to separate the rock from the Liquid Nails on the cabinet top. WEIGHT GAIN: at 5.5 weeks weighed 10 pounds at lactation center. Then I’m going to work on half of it; sand, paint and put three coats of polyurethane over it. If I like the finished product, I’ll paint my cabinets and replace the doors.
