We were fortunate enough that the dates from our existing house overlapped so we could do the work while living in our old home.
My father was very ill and we were initially away when the work on the house began.
The home was previously owned by the lady who built it with her husband 40 years earlier.
Old style out, new style in...
We can easily fit 20 people in there for buffet and it doesn't feel crowded.
We feel so blessed.
Not that we're going to have 20 kids or anything,
(this pic was taken in a showroom--not my home--hence the price tags)
This is the table set that started it all!
the colours for the cabinetry and the island were derived from this little baby!
We had the cabinets sprayed and varnished by a very talented cabinet maker.
took out a cabinet to make way for a dishwasher.
put in a very durable peel and stick floor found at Home Depot.
My cabinet maker put dividers in for my baking sheets...
ahhhhh... love him!
bought new appliances for the first time!
it felt like Christmas!
this is the wine rack hubby designed with our cabinet maker to go over the refrigerator.
the cabinet that had been there had to be shortened due to the height of our fridge and this was a great answer!
The lighting was the designer's choice. I love it now.
the colour gets mixed reviews
but we love it!
My favourite thing is my backsplash!
