Newly Remodeled kitchen Done!!

Well, almost done. Still a few more things to tweak and add, but it's 99% complete. Woo Hoo!! Whew, I am so glad too. The timing couldn't be better. I start a new job on Monday. Being laid off these past 3 months has given me time to help with the remodel and being able to put things back together at a slower pace rather than just weekends. I'm still decorating, but it's off to a good start. You'll notice some bare walls, but that will be taken care of real soon. Hope you enjoy the pics and I would love to know what you think.

We haven't got the shelving up yet so the TV is sitting on the cupboard that houses the coffee maker. I have changed my mind a million times about this wall. You can see how it is lower than the wall with the cabinet and too low for wall cabinets and I've been struggling with this corner. I want the TV to sit up on a shelf, but still not sure how to tie it in with the upper cabinets. Just to the left of this "blank" wall is the sink.

This is the other side of the "blank" wall. I have shorter cabinets up, but they seemed to crowd the wall and draw attention to the fact that it is low so I hung my plate rack up and love it there. Now I'm trying to decide if I should put shelving up or just leave it like it is. What do you think?

Here is a picture of the cupboard hanging in the dining area. I think I have that like I want it. I only changed it five or six times. The bunny pic looks really good next to the black dont ya think?

This was taken from the kitchen looking into the dining area. Remember the pic from an earlier post with the fridge where the cupboard is now. Told ya that wasn't going to stay there. Oh and neither is the fan, it's been really hot here the last two days. Finally getting some summer weather here in upstate NY. And I took the vertical blinds down and hung up some curtains. I like that much better, although I'm not sure if these particular ones will stay there or not. I only hung up a cheap tension rod to see if this would look better so I need to get a nicer rod to hang up there.

This was shot looking in from the living room. The dry sink was my birthday present this year. I got it from a local primitive and country gift shop. My hubby has really good taste, don't ya think?

Picture of the new computer desk area. This used to be the dining room. I just love the way this turned out. We took the old desk and moved it here and made a new top for it using the same formica that is on the island. I wanted it to have a built in look. We also used the hutch from the old desk, just took the ugly backing off of it. Still have to decorate this area...

Here is a good pic of the kitchen. See the new farm sink? That's not quite finished yet. Still have to paint the side pieces to match the cabinets and paint the trim around it to match the counter tops. Oh and the rugs still have the tags on them. Just picked them up tonight and contemplating if I like them or not. There is a smaller one in front of the stove.

This pic shows the the island looking into the kitchen. Love the new rusted tin hanging lights. They also match the one hanging in front of the sink.

This is looking in from the dining area. It a good picture of the new floors. They are hand scraped from Virginia Mills. This is called golden teak. Gorgeous!

Till next time....

Nancy, your kitchen looks so good, i love the open ness of it!
Would a corner cupboard work to house the TV and leave the rest of the wall open? I really want to make some changes in my kitchen, but the budget says not now! Great job on yours!

Oh my, this is just a perfect kitchen if you ask me. The theme and the color choice from the walls to your cabinet work really well. This is a kitchen I wouldn't mind eating at and staying in for a coffee for extended hours. Hehe!
