Won't be long now until the big finish! The cabinets are beautiful - a great shade of sage/gray/taupe, LOVE the granite countertops and the pot rack light fixture (I just happened to see at Lowe's) is one of my favorite things. Now we have to get some nice looking pots and pans to hang from it. The 30+ year old hand me down pots work well but are definitely not the kind that anyone would display!
This photo doesn't show the true color of the cabinets but you can get the idea. The granite makes the counter space seem so much bigger! The sinks are a granite composite but they show every drop of water on the dark brown color. Hopefully our very hard water doesn't leave marks on them over time.
We decided to take out the sink from the bar since we never used it. The wine chiller we ordered for the left cabinet wouldn't fit and neither would any other one we could find. It was supposed to have a little refrigerator in it when we built our house 19 years ago. We opted not to have one for reasons I can't recall so they just gave it a cabinet door instead. Today we found a nice wine rack that fits perfectly and red wine is consumed in larger quantities around here anyway! And by the way - Dee and Jordan, that red wine thing is ALL your fault! More about those two later! We already had the small free standing eight bottle chiller for the whites on the countertop!
The wood floors are scheduled to be refinished and stained a nice neutral brown in a few weeks, the kitchen tile backsplash is ordered and the living room cabinets will be painted and distressed soon. The carpenter already added bead board to the back of the open bookcases for a fresh look . . . love that!
Bob looks a little surprised don't you think? Maybe I shouldn't tell him about the stone on the exterior yet! More soon. xoxx, Renée
