Working on my Kitchen

Postby LadyDraco » Sat Jan 28, 2017 8:32 am

We did this yesterday ... Pulled the cabinets down from the stove area ..

Have to run to lowes' and get some paint.. And hit this area ... Ugh what colour :baldy

Maybe a semi gloss egg shell .. Yes that's Orange on the other wall the other side is Yellow.. Hope to have the metal cabinets and 2 shelves up tomorrow..

With just the 2 of us things move slow when you have other things to do in the day..

Image

Back story ~ some of ya know we have been at this for a long time like 6+ yrs Gathering old metal kitchen cabinets and marrying them to other brands.. That we find out NOT all cabinets are the same depth and heights :baldy .. All this past summer I repainted all the cabinets that we have..




Yes we could have spent $$ and had them painted by an auto painter .. But that was not in the budget.

So cans did the job.. After all they are old cabinets...

Here are a few things we had done a few years back...

You can see the funky cabinets in the kitchen
This photo is with the old white stove

And the new to us Black stove

Re the black stove (looks good btw) - what's in the centre between the elements? Does that lift up? Also what is to the left of the oven - is it blanked off or is there something in there?

p.s. I like kitchens and kitchen design. Just call me Frasier or Niles.

That use to be one of my favorite shows...Fraser !
I bet you don't like toast sweat on a counter top also ... :lol8

That is a griddle in the middle... That I have used a few times already

And the left to the main over is a side kick oven... That I also have used a few times..

Image

I bought this stove used last fall..
And paid $150 IICR ... The stove new cost $1500..
Oh and was made in 2007 in Canada ..

I really like it ... :thumb

Thanks Mate .... :thumb

They look great!

Go back to your first post - finding old cupboards, matching brands, painting... the end result is great! And worth the effort!

p.s. I much prefer doing things myself than paying someone.

We should finish today by adding in the back splash ...

can you reach your stuff or do you keep a milk crate handy, like some old crotchety KLR rider?
