Here are the photos of the finished kitchen! The contractor came with the final pieces a few weeks ago. But the wood piece under the cabinets to help block the light was the wrong color and she ordered a new one.
We love all the counter space! And the WilsonArt Betty laminate is so lovely. The top mount Kohler farmhouse sink was a great find as it can be used with laminate. And the Bosch dishwasher was worth every penny. So silent and it actually get the dishes clean.
The quartersawn cherry cabinets are aging beautifully. The middle cabinet front below is a replacement as the carpenters marred the first one, so it has not aged as long.
And the cork floor is a dream to clean!
People love the bling of the stainless steel mosaic back splash behind the hood. We have LED lighting under the cabinets.
The glass door cabinets hold some vintage tea sets, dishes, glasses and the Smiley face cookie jar we got for a wedding gift in 1972.
The pulls are minimalist.
Did I mention I love the cork floor?
I looked for months before I found this Michael Miller fabric with teapots. I knew it was perfect for our kitchen. It had the right colors, a nice retro feel, and we are tea lovers.
The 1950s chrome and laminate table was found in the basement of one of our parsonages. We traded it for another table we had. My husband had to remove lots of paint from the top. People drool over it. The red chairs were bought from Target about 15 years ago.
The bread box was 50 cents at a garage sale.
I am glad we splurged for the built in cabinets around the refrigerator.
