I love my new kitchen. There are a few things I'd change,
but it's so much better than it was.
The "farm house" window frames are a part that I really am pleased with. I found a tutorial online.
I framed up all the other doors in the vicinity as well.
The drainboard sink was a request of my husband. We REALLY wanted a vintage one, but they are super expensive. This new version was $50 on craigslist. The hanging lights were installed last year and all the appliances are the same. We pulled up the floor and reused it. We had purchased 6 extra boxes so we had enough to cover the pantry area.
The backspash is Ann Sacks.
I purchased it on Craigslist for $50. It was leftovers from a remodeling job in the ritzy part of Portland. I also found the Ann Sacks bullnose tile at The Rebuilding Center. I love that place!
the only thing I splurged on was the stainless exhaust fan. I found a killer deal on ebay! Shortly after I purchased it they raised their price.
I'm happy with the results.
I'm sure I will find something to change in the near future.
