So we surely have taken our sweet time installing this new kitchen... I think it´s been a month now since everything has been delivered and we´re still not done. Which on the one hand is nice because it makes such a huge task much more doable, but on the other hand it seems like this is taking forever. Anyway, we´re making good progress now so I thought I´d share a sneak peek.
Above is my pride and joy, the kitchen island with a made to measure oak counter top (one of the things we splurged on) and a gas hob for which one tiny little thing is missing so it´s not functional yet (which means I´ve been eating sandwiches only for days now which leaves me hungry and cranky).
Here´s said kitchen island and a glimpse of the painted cabinets. The sun is casting weird shadows here, but I think the cabinets turned out really lovely. I´ve been toying with the idea of doing something like this to make them a little more shaker style, but have I mentioned this is already taking forever? Maybe in a few years when I have to repaint anyway. For now, nice enough.
The opposite row of cabinets is painted F&B Slipper Satin which is a creamy white without being too yellow, just how I like it. Oh and see this board on top of the counter top? It´s painted Charleston Gray for experimental purposes, and I think I am going to be daring and paint the whole wall this color. Yes, this kitchen is already dark, but all color experts say to embrace it, so this is what I am going to do. And it´s going to look fabulous, you just wait and see.
So! We´re still missing lamps and shelves and so much more stuff, but we´re getting there! I´ll keep you updated.
PS: Someone has nominated me for the Apartment Therapy Homies. You are lovely people, thank you so much.
