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...
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!
