You can see that my youngest daughter is quite happy to have a kitchen again! The new Medallion cabinets are installed as well as the hex tile countertops and subway tile backsplash. We chose the Medallion Sonoma cabinets in cherry, with the Chestnut finish. I even got to practice my finish carpentry skills by making a new window stool.
This is a view of what used to be the original utility chimney and a ratty old pantry with a heating duct running through it. I removed both, pushed the wall back 18" and added L-shaped cabinets and counters. I now have 2 ducts running through the new wall up to the top floor.
The refrigerator is a Big Chill unit that we absolutely love!
This is the main view into the kitchen from the dining room. It's getting pretty close to done, but I still need to install the new door and window casings and finish the crown moulding. All of the trim will be painted white. The cheapo electric range will be replaced with a vintage O'Keefe & Merritt 36" range. The range hood is a Vent-a-Hood 9" high Excalibur model.
