Creating beautiful things… repurposing vintage & found items-transforming them & combining them to create beautiful new pieces. The shine on the tile makes your kitchen look so crisp. This homeowner, a top Realtor in the area, needed a small space that was unique to flaunt to her clients. When we got to a piece that would have the cord, he notched out an area for the cord to come through at the top, and put an indention down the piece, with the router, so the cord would have somewhere to sit.
BEFORE: 30” range, and awkward corner to left of sink that jutted” out and ruined that counter space as anything but useable. The next thing we worked on was the vent hood and island. I’ve never understood hoods that are not vented-that just ‘recycle’ the air and spit it back into your house.
For storage I chose another wall of upper cabinets but included some glass cabinets in the center for display. For many reasons, time, budget, kids, work, and of course, indecision. Katie Ridder installed a rolling ladder (just like the library!) in this excellent kitchen to access ceiling-height cabinets.
We cut the braces for that off as well, it wouldn’t provide the support we needed, the sink is very heavy. In addition, the light surface makes a brighter cabinet interior, it is easy to clean and doesn’t require finishing. Back in November, our neighbor who does kitchens helped us order cabinets from Ikea and he was going to put them together for us.
I’m in love with every single detail – what an over the top amazing makeover ! Even if you’re like me and not changing the footprint of the space, you need to know the size of things when you go shopping.
