~kitchen 'corners'~

Since one corner of the kitchen, which is the baking center, is finally finished I'll show you how it's turning out. Below is a 'Before' picture with one cupboard door off to be painted...
Here it is after the facelift, painted cottage white, with new bead board and a wood countertop, and minus the tambour door/appliance garage. As much as I liked having the appliance garage, when I saw it without, I liked the openness and extra work space.
I'm enjoying the change and the new lighter brighter look.
And I'm very thankful for a husband who has given so much time to making & installing the countertop, installing the bead board, re-doing the plumbing (which he hates) & installing the new sink & faucet!

  1. Your kitchen is such an inspiration to all people who love decorating. My husband and I are hoping to build our own house in the next couple years and so your ideas are inspiring to me. I was wondering what is the metal rack type thing? It looks really neat in the baking centre.

  2. Mrs Hurzeler ~ I found that little wire rack at a flea market or yard sale. I don't know what its original purpose was, but I use it to hold my flour scoop. Deb

  3. Lovely choices for everything. You are an inspiration for those of us that just sit drinking our tea, watching all that you're doing. Where do you get the time and energy?

  5. It looks awesome! I love the brightness of the cabinets and backsplash against the richness of the wood counter. I think your little wire basket hanging on the wall is really cute, too.

  13. That is GORGEOUS!!! We are doing a mini-facelift on our kitchen at the moment & I might have to use that paint color. And, I love that you have a baking center.

    You & your husband did a great job.

  14. I love it~ just beautiful! I've always said, WHITE IS RIGHT! Can I ask, your jars. Are they new? Did you paint the lids that color? I love jars and have them in my pantry w/ my dry ingredients in them...I have one jar that is old that has the original green lid. I just love everything!

  31. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!

    That kitchen looks fabulous and your hubby did a great job. It's not nice painting doors like that.

    I have had a mini makeover too but in my lounge - just changed the slipcovers, rug and some accessories and I have a new room -I've blogged it, take a look see. It makes such a difference.

    best wishes Ginny
