We have been doing a remodel in our kitchen now for the past couple of weeks. The new cupboards are up and the walls are finally painted. The countertop is a black/tan swirly pattern. I chose to match the tan color so my walls are now a caramelly shade of tan. I know it sounds a little corny....but....all the black - my sink, faucet and prim wood pieces really "pop" against this color.
So, I thought I would share a few pics of our "work in progress" and give you a virtual tour.
I love my new microwave cubby. Before, it sat on an ugly old cart with wheels. ugh.
I chose a black cast iron Kohler sink. It is approx. 8 inches deep. Love it!! You don't get the splash all over your walls and countertop while doing dishes. Yes...you heard me right....doing dishes. I don't have a dishwasher:)
Oh my goodness...my new pantry. Don't know what I ever did without one!!!
This dry sink was originally brown. I repainted it black and distressed. I guess you could safely say that black is my next favorite color...heehee!
A close-up of the dry sink. (The little rabbit make-do was made for my by Kim of Old Road Primitives.) It is sitting on top of my antique dairyware bucket.
This paper towel holder was originally buttercream over black crackle finish. I refinished it prim black. This piece was made for me by Cedar Hill Primitives.
The vintage bench was a $5.00 yard sale find that I redid in the black and distressed. (It is one of my favorite things:)
Our back door - the peg rack is a $7.00 find from hobby lobby that I painted and distressed. We have no coat closet in this old farmhouse, so this rack will be loaded with coats this winter. The Olde Farmhouse sign is from the Country House.
My old pantry jar shelf that Mr. Wonderful made and my treenware bowl that I found on one of my trips to Shipshewana, Ind. (Amish country)
OK - so now that I have bored you all to death, I'll show you my last two latest finds....
