Coast Awhile Cottage Kitchen: Come On Over For Dinner!

I've been showing you the good, the bad and the ugly of renovating the kitchen at Coast Awhile Cottage, a cottage we recently sold to another family...well, I've mostly been showing the bad and the ugly.  Today it's time for the good!

It took several orders from Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon and Overstock to get all the dishes, servingware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, small appliances, and kitchen linens collected.  Then more time to wash and organize it.  


Here is a small portion of the goods awaiting their place in the drawers and cabinets.  This home needed to be able to service a large family!


Aren't they beautiful?
We found cool nautical-looking chandeliers and used them over the bar and kitchen sink.




The kitchen colors were very soothing and organic.  I was afraid it was going to be a bit too soothing so when I saw these counter stools on Overstock I wondered if I dared?...Jane Coslick, who helped oversee this renovation, said YES!



Peter Dittmar built me a pantry.

Jane found these fabulous knobs from World Market. Hardware is akin to the jewelry we use to accessorize our clothes.  These knobs give a polished look to the cabinets.  Love them.


All in all I'm really happy with this kitchen renovation.  


We went from this...



To this...


 
To this!

 I wish it could be as quick and easy as it looks on a blog but it took several months to complete. I didn't want to do as much as we did but it was necessary for safety 
(and beauty--that's important too) and I love the results!
