The carpenters were back at the house Tuesday afternoon and much of Wednesday. Their task, kitchen cupboards.
When they left on Tuesday it looked like this.
The upper piece with the glass doors is the piece we bought. It was $300 for the piece. It’s in awesome shape. We had the cabinet maker make the lower cupboards and the cupboards to the left with the intention that we wanted them to match. The actually look wonderful together. I am super happy with the job that the cabinet maker did.
There are a couple things I would change about the whole thing but for the most part, I’m happy with it all. When the original small window was ordered that you see straight ahead, I think everyone thought that the ceiling in the kitchen wasn’t going to be so high. The ceilings are higher making the space above the window awkward. We discussed it for some time tonight. The window of course will get some trim around it. Still there will be about 4″ of wall there. I don’t like that. I suggested we just get a board stained and finished the same as the cupboards and put that in the “wall” area. So far, that’s our favorite suggestion.
Now that I see the cupboards done I am partly wishing I didn’t go with the counter tops with the red and silver trim. I love the cupboards and I love the counter top. I just don’t love them together. Hubby is head over heals with it though.
I didn’t want anything modern and I definitely didn’t want granite…I wanted something old feeling. I had always loved the counter tops that Hubby’s mom had-the same as mine. I’m just not sure that these all go together the best. It’s something I can easily live with for awhile though-because like I said, I love them both, I just don’t feel confident about them together.
I’ll know more in time to come once all the handles get on and the appliances and floors are finished. I know all along there have been things that weren’t my favorite that I’ve grown to love and things that I love but after a bit later I found flaws with. I do love the layout and all of those who didn’t like my big long window…that I still love!!
Watch for another update when they get a little farther along….
